“Loved it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

Great service and fantastic pancakes! The wait staff is attentive and all over it with the coffee refills - a good sign for a place known for breakfast. I go back every time I'm in San Jose...but I always get the pancakes.

“Great Breakfast spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

This is a great place for Breakfast. We went for the first time recently and now my husband is obsessed with their steak and eggs. We will return for sure to try more things on the menu. The service is great as well as the prices are reasonable for good food.

“Top notch breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

This is a great place for breakfast, across the street from a Best Western. They have lots of items on the menu and even have Eggs Benedict 12 different ways. The hash browns were the best ever. The only advice is to avoid the Bloody Mary or Mimosa because of the very cheap liquor they use.

“Comfort breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

Famous mimosas. Exactly what you expect when you want an American comfort breakfast: big omelets, home fries, pancakes and waffles. Casual diner atmosphere.
