“Great Food, Not Just Pancakes”
Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

The menu is large and offers many options outside just pancakes and eggs - though, those were great too! The French crepes were delicious! Everyone at the table wanted a taste! Both kids and adults found something to please from this large menu and all were happy with their selections. Service is fast too! Walk in, sit down, and you'll be eating before you know it. Definitely better than some of the bigger chain breakfast places. I highly recommend you check it out!

“Great Breakfast”
Reviewed June 29, 2013 via mobile

Best pancakes in, fast service, clean and friendly. A very good spot for breakfast! The coffee hit the spot, the young lady who waited on us was friendly and nice, kept the cups full and the table cleared.

Highly recommended.

“Best pancakes in Birmingham”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

You have to go here once in Birmingham. There is very little to do in my town, so you gotta take advantage of whats here. Come eat bfast until like 2 pm- its worth it. The servers are awesome and the coffee is hot. But the apple baby and pecan pancakes and the bigger than a dog omelletes are sweetness! I eat here everytime I go anywhere near downtown. Warning- mega calories, but who cares!

“Enjoyed my breakfast”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

Got to the restaurant around 8:20 a.m. on a Sunday and this place was already hopping. Being there were only two of us we were seated right away. Larger groups were having to wait. I ordered a basic Canadian bacon and eggs. I told them to leave off the pancakes and bring me a crepe with strawberry's. I'd swear there were 6 eggs on my plate. Way more than I'd ever eat. The bacon and eggs were find but nothing special. The crepe with the warm strawberry sauce was fabulous. The wife ordered an omelet and it was the size of a deflated basketball. They must use 20 eggs or more to make that thing. Overall the meal and service was fine.
