I live out of state and was visiting my son here in San Antonio. Wanted a local breakfast experience. This place was great. My son had the original buttermilk pancakes and they were the best I’ve ever tried and I got the fancy cinnamon apple...pancake. I would give the unique name but I can’t remember how to spell it, oh my gosh that was good. “Oma’s Favorite” Loads of cinnamon and apple, fried bits of batter and just the right amount of heavy whipped cream. Soooo good. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful. Warm Texas people. We will be coming back next visit for sure.More

The staff was friendly. The food was average. The eggs and hash browns seemed barely warm. The pancakes were good. I would give it another try but was not impressed.

Today was my second visit. Food is excellent, staff is friendly and customer service focused, expect for the young lady who is the cashier. She sits to the left as you come in. The first visit the hostess was away, the cashier was the only...one up front. she made no attempt to acknowledge or tell us the hostess would be right up, Today, I noticed she was coloring. When we went to pay she continued to color during the transaction! At least act like you are interested in the fact that customers paying you, is how you get payed! I am truly surprised that management allows this behavior when everyone else is so nice and attentive.More

We came here a few years ago when visiting San Antonio for a conference and this breakfast was absolutely amazing. My wife got the poppyseed waffle with a side of bacon and I got the apfel pfannekuchen with a side of sausage patties. Both the...waffle and the pancake were perfectly cooked and they were bursting with flavor. It was so nice to see creative takes on breakfast items (our favorite) and those are two flavor profiles that we really love. The service was great as well and this is a restaurant that we will definitely be visiting the next time we're in San Antonio!More

Out of town working and decided to stop by this place. The wait was an hour which was fine since I had some work to do on my laptop. Asked if I could get a coffee to go for my hour wait. I was told...no by the hostess. The manager came out and told me that coffee is a full time job and they really don’t have the time. He was willing to begrudgingly accommodate but I to just go elsewhere.More

I will share your review with our staff, we do not sell coffee to guests on the waitlist but the situation certainly could have been handled better.

We ate at this restaurant after seeing it on a tv show and also looking it up on Trip Advisor. The food here was really good and so was the coffee. All of the food was made to order and the flavors were terrific. The...waiter was very good and attentive but not overly intrusive. We will go back any time we are near this city so we can try more things on the menu!More

too long a wait for overpriced pancakes - I left hungry but I paid for being full. Coffee was not good either.

Great breakfast here. Nice atmosphere and decor. Friendly service. My husband and I had the calico hash and eggs, pulled pork and sweet potato, and the peach and pecan Texas waffle. They were both really good. Their coffee was one of the best restaurant cups...of coffee I've had in a while. They had about ten other things I wanted to try so I'd definitely go back.More

Busy and noisy when I came for breakfast. I got a short stack of buckwheat pancakes. They were okay, nothing special. The coffee was strong though not very flavorful. Nonetheless, my appetite was sated, I was caffeinated, and ready for a long day of sightseeing.

For all the positive reviews, I expected this place to have a phenomenal breakfast, but it was no better than any other breakfast place. My husband had the bacon waffle and said it was delicious and my daughter had the pecan waffle - she said...it was yummy. I had the farmers scramble and everything was very runny. Had a hard time eating it.More
