“Will Be Back !”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

Second breakfast visit to Billy’s Pancake House was every bit as enjoyable as the first, some months ago. A bright and very popular place judging by the number of patrons on each visit, we were greeted warmly, seated promptly and coffee immediately arrived at the table. It is best to be quite hungry when you visit because there is no effort made here to scrimp on the dishes that are served. In fact the overall impression that one gets is that every effort is made to ensure you have everything you might desire. For example, when hot tea is served, the hot water is served in a large flask that keeps it hot, and in addition to the sugar on the table, there is a lemon segment as well as honey also provided with the tea. The eggs were cooked to perfection, the Canadian bacon serving really generous, the fruit was fresh and varied and the side pancakes large and flavorful. Order the blueberry pancakes or the chocolate pancakes and be prepared for a feast. Coffee refills appear almost like magic and the service overall was excellent during both our visits.
