“Very Good Food - Uncomfortable Seats!”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

We couldn't find the breakfast restaurant we were looking for, so we stopped here instead. Glad we did! Spacious restaurant, friendly staff, and good food! The a/c was on high when we got there so it was really cold, but the owner turned it down and the temperature was fine. The only other thing that is very important is the seating: wooden benches for the booths and wood chairs for the tables. Neither is comfortable. You definitely won't linger long after eating! My husband just had a regular egg & bacon breakfast which he said was good. I tried something different and ordered the strawberry, banana, walnut waffle which was extremely delicious! Would definitely go back here again. Just wished they'd change the seats! Note: Ice Tea was freshly made and soooo good! (so many restaurants serve so-so tea, but not this one!)

“Good food”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 via mobile

We ate here twice while in Panama City. First we got there about 9:30 it was packed had about 20-30 minute wait. When we finally got seated food was very good. I got eggs bacon and pancakes. The only pancakes they have we're wheat pancakes, but they were very good. My son just got toast and bacon. The bill was pretty high for just us two was about 24.00. They also have internet which was very fast.

“Cold Food”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

We read a bunch of good reviews on this place, but found it lacking when we went. We went for breakfast on Saturday morning around 08:00 CT. We ordered coffee and an assortment of meals. The coffee was not hot, the roasted potatoes were cool, and one person's waffle was cool. The service was good, and the rest of the food was good, just too many errors to have such great reviews.

“Slow”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

10 minute wait was actually 30. Sat down...waited another 10 minutes. Food took 30 minutes. Don't go on a Sunday I guess.

“Great Breakfast and Good Selection”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

We were surprised at the warm welcome we received upon entering. The restaurant is clean and the management and staff were super. We had breakfast and the food was very good. Besides the great food we wanted to note that the owner, who was on the premise and training a new bus boy, took time to greet everyone. It was clear by the training we saw that the owner and every staff member took pride in their jobs and truly valued the customer relationship. Job well done to all and we whole heatedly recommend this restaurant.
