We stopped here for brunch exactly at noon on Sunday and of course there was a large number of people waiting. We were told that the wait would be 15-20 minutes and were pleased that it was exactly 15 minutes when we were seated. We totally enjoyed our experience and are thankful that we came here based on the other TA reviews. The menu is extensive, the food quality is excellent, the portion sizes just right and the service great. Another positive is that the ambient noise level is low enough, even with a full dining room, that a pleasant conversation is possible without the din of offensive background music or clatter of bussed dishes. We didn't have any fresh, squeezed juice, one of their trademark items, but will try that on our next visit.

The food is very, very good - freshly squeezed orange juice and a large breakfast menu. They serve lunch as well, but I have only gotten breakfast. The service is good for as busy as they are. Don't go on the weekends unless you have some time.

The quality is excellent every item on there extensive menu is top quality. We stop in when in Phoenix even though it's in Scottsdale. Open till 3:00 no dinner. The apple pancake is the best I've had outside of Original Pancake House (there isn't one in Phoenix) Jenifer was are server this time. Coffee is really fine. Prices are reasonable considering the quality (8 to 10$ range).

To be fair, I understand it is a great lunch spot. Good salads, great service which includes sending nonalcoholic drinks with departing customers in "to go" cups", etc. that is for my wife and her needlepoint group. What I think is great is the breakfasts. I had a skillet and all are good. Two others at the table had scrambles and loved them. Fourth had banana bread French toast and declared it a great choice. It was national iced tea day so no one had the fancy orange juice this place uses as a profit center. This place is so popular it is hard to get in. Midmorning on a monday in June it was busy. Despite the crowd the service was great If you can get in it is worth it. The plaque declaring it the best breakfast is accurate.

Fluffy eggs, excellent food, noisy w/no ambiance, but who cares, the food is so good. Try to avoid Sundays because the wait is so long.
