The best omelettes ever made coupled with pancakes from heaven. Started out our meal with one of the best cups of coffee I have ever had, then ordered an omelette that the waitress warned us that was big. When the omelette arrived it was fluffy seriously fluffy and the pecan banana pancakes were as good as being in the tropical islands. Great service great prices seriously large portions make it worth the drive off the interstate.

The coffee! Great full flavor and served with heavy cream on request. I think it is the best tasting restaurant coffee in town. I usually order the spinach and cheese omelet with mushroom sherry sauce. It is big enough for two and includes a side of buttermilk pancakes, or, for a couple dollars more, you can get potato pancakes with applesauce and sour cream. Also delicious are the cherry crepes, very light with just the right amount of tart flavor. It is worth the drive to eat breakfast here!

We ate here for the second time and both times it was good. The banana pancakes are awesome, beware they give you a lot and they are very filling. I was told the sour dough french toast was very good too. I would suggest you get there early. It fills up rather quickly.

The food and service is great. My kids love to come here. A bit pricey but you get what you pay for. Huge portions and fresh food. I will keep paying.
