We recently tried Smitty's for breakfast and were disappointed. First the good-the wait staff seemed friendly and were reasonably attentive. However, while there was nothing terribly wrong with the food in the sense that it was bad or inedible, there was not much that was overly good with it either. The coffee, served in what might be the world's smallest coffee cups, was watery and weak. My wife had eggs benedict that featured a sauce masquerading as hollandaise sauce-uninspiring and bland. The mystery cheese in my bacon denver omelette was tasteless. All of this can be yours for only $35 for two (including gratuity). Finally, not one of the 4 or 5 staff that we encountered asked us the ubiquitous 'How was everything?'. I think they know.

Pancakes are always a treat and Smitty's does a great job. Service is fast and food is good breakfast fare. We don't have a pancake restaurant near us so it's always Smitty's on our trips to the area.

It is a tradition to get up and go for breakfast. Great selection on the menu, you can't go wrong.
