Our friends who had lived in Walla Walla said this restaurant is a must if you are in town. We were not disappointed. The staff was friendly and kept our coffee cups full as well as making sure we were happy. The pancakes are to die for as they are sweet, light and fluffy and I couldn't put my fork... More

Arrived at 9am on Saturday and waited 20 mins for a seat. All dishes were served hot because the kitchen blows the train whistle alerting the servers as soon as food is ready. Fritata was good. Thick sliced bacon was very tasty. Eggs over easy were perfectly cooked. Disappointed in the weak cappuccino served in a glass with a straw... More

We ordered the porridge with fruit. It was quite good until my wife found a hair in hers. The service was slow; we had to keep asking for more coffee (a cardinal sin in my book). The servers almost never brought a coffee pot with them and they never noticed if you needed a refill. Oh, and did I mention... More

A favorite of locals, the place was packed for Sunday lunch, so we waited 15-20 minutes to be seated: the wait was well worth it! My Mediterranean Frittata with three pancakes and my wife’s fruit blintzes were super! The table serves were friendly, attentive, and busy as bees.

I think it lived up to it's reputation. Food was good and plentiful. Pancakes were nice a fluffy. The bacon is real and thick sliced. I had a skillet and it was the bomb if you like that sort of thing. Not cheap but not expensive either. Will have to try other dishes next time we're in town.

Came for waffles, saw the chili. I tried that (and shared some waffles, too, of course), and the chili is not to be overlooked. Delicious and hearty, and also offered with their savory waffles!

First thing to mention is there is a huge maybe 5ft slant in the entrance floor. One older woman almost took a tumble. Next, the cashier and waiter were rude. Didn't really care for the food after that. Management isn't that good, they need to figure out a better way of doing things here. There were some other problems that... More

I couldn't understand why a cafe would be rated this high on Trip Advisor but after having breakfast there I now understand. Great service, portions large enough for two to share, and excellent food. Definitely worth your business.

Great food, personable staff and warm ambience. Lots to choose from. Get there early as there's usually a line.
