A comfortable walk from our condo near Moonlight Beach. Within minutes of our arrival we were shown to a table, greeted by the owner and our 20 month old grandson was given a large Mr. Potato Head to keep him busy. Coffee was good. Large portions. Tried the "manhole sized" pancakes, huevos rancheros, veggie omelet, burrito and chili cheese omelet. Tables were interesting cuts of large trees. Our waitress gave us helpful suggestions for other restaurants.

I have never seen a pancake the size of theirs AND they are great. Tons of food and it's all great. Prices are very good, service excellent and the tables are made out of trees. Wonderful place to eat, drink coffe/tea, read the paper and just relax.

This is a great place to have breakfast on weekends. Share one of the huge pancakes, you will be filled up for the day, and they are delicious. I disagree with the bit about it being greasy! You also can take your dog and sit outside.

Ugh. My family loves this place but every plate seems to come swimming in grease. I get a stomach just thinking of this place.
