“Biggest pancake ever!”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Great breakfast/really reasonable price. Had a ham and cheese omelett with gingerbread pancake. Both delicious, and the pancake cam on its own plate, and covered the entire thing. Try their homemade salsa. Very friendly staff.

“Great Food”
Reviewed October 20, 2012 via mobile

Came upon this place by chance when looking for somewhere which could offer a reasonable choice of vegetarian dishes. This was the place, and what's more it had some very interesting dishes. Very large portions as well. Service excellent. Strongly recommend.

“Great breakfast!”
Reviewed October 19, 2012 via mobile

I only had breakfast, so that is all my review is based on, but I found it to be totally delicious and I can't wait to go back to this spot next time I'm in Austin.

“Love love love it! super yum!”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Fast, delicious, eclectic, wide variety! What else could you ask for? Even the coffee is good. Went with 2 little kids, they had a monstrous chocolate chip pancake that they still talk about.
