The pancakes here are absolutely AWESOME. They make two different kinds of pancakes. Their regular ones are sweet cream, and they are light and fluffy and fantastic. The other ones are almond/granola pancakes, and they are very filling and really good. I usually ask for one of each, and I can never finish them. The servings are huge. We also go for dinner once in a while, but I still have the pancakes!

My wife and I were visiting Davis in July and stopped here to eat. I had an omlette and my wife had ham & eggs. The biscuits here were huge! The meals here are also huge! and the prices are very reasonable. I think it actually cost us less to go here than a Dennys! You will also love the atmosphere here! I have attached several pictures for your enjoyment. There is REAL orange juice here as well. The waitresses are very nice and cooks very talented.

This is a good place with pretty decent food. It still has the flavor of a chain restaurant, no matter how much they try to part from this impression, but nonetheless, it is a good place to eat and I will be back again.

When we drive ten miles to Davis this is the first restaurant we think of. Comfortable, fine service, portions are generous to a fault. Try the Eggs Benedict, marvelous. Free WiFi in case your conversation gives out.
