Awesome breakfast. Strawberry pancakes to die for and nice crisp thick bacon. Friendly waitress helped when ordering to give me 1/2 order of each and it was still a lot of food.

I ordered a couple of eggs and asked for accompanying hash browns, expecting perhaps half a cup nestled next to my eggs. The order arrived, heaped on a platter perhaps 5 inches by 10 inches and topped with melted cheese. It could have served as an entrée! Piping hot, flavored with onions and green peppers, it was exquisite. I struggled... More

This was a very nice little pancake house. Everyone was nice and friendly, and the food was very good and served at a decent price. Coffee was delicious and everything came out just exactly how it was ordered. Nice little restaurant.

Visiting with family and our granddaughters recommended this for breakfast. Mid week, mid morning and we had about a 15 minute wait for the table. Well worth the wait and a meal enjoyed by all, Service was great. I had the crepe blintzes which were delicious - not too sweet and prepared just right. We love breakfast places and as... More

This is our go to place for breakfast. Breakfasts are so big they can be easily shared. Add chocolate chips for the best pancakes ever!

We were looking for a local place to eat breakfast before heading back to Tennessee. Found this place on Trip Adviser and so glad we went there. We went in around 10:30 A.M. on a Sunday, and the estimated wait time, we were told, was 30-45 minutes. It was actually only about 20 minutes. The whole family was amazed at... More

Very pleasant experience. The food, service and prices were absolutely wonderful. Although it is a bit tight, the above certainly makes up for it. Will definitely return. !

Breakfast is one of my favorite meal. Therefore, me and my wife go around the city to try out different breakfast/brunch. This is by far the best place for breakfast /brunch. They have wide range of food for everyone. My favorite of all time is their Hawaiian pancakes, which comes with their unique syrup. Oh and their coffee is excellent.... More

This is a MUST EAT place! It was recommended by my brother who lives nearby, and when he talked about it he drooled. I can see why. There was a bit of a wait, it was a Sunday around 10:30AM, about 20 minutes, worth it. The food is amazing; pancakes, waffles, and the service was great. You just got to... More

When you are ready to go off your diet for a really good reason, this is the place to wait for! The breakfast delights are too numerous to mention. The service was great and coffee excellent. My two sons and I enjoyed three different meals and we cleaned our plates.
