“Best breakfast in town”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

I have been there about 4 times in the past few months with family and friends; always on a Sunday. Each time we have gotten a seat right away (just sit down, you don't need to wait to be seated) and a sever was there promptly to take our drink orders. There are times I see people waiting at the door for a seat, but it's never for long. The prices are reasonable, about $20 for two of us with drinks and a tip.

My favorite is "the classic" two pancakes with sausage links, the pancakes are amazing. My husband's favorite is the country fried steak skillet, I always grab a few bites of this as it is really really good!!!

Everyone should dine at the Breakfast House at least once. Great staff, home style food, great cost.

“Good Midwestern breakfast”
Reviewed June 4, 2012

Yummy and they had Chalula too. So they spanned the needs of having a typical midwestren breakfast, yummy with large portions and for a little spice with it.

“Never Disappointed”
Reviewed March 16, 2012

I have to drive across town but its always worth it to have breakfast here. Despite the fact that they are usually busy, I have never had poor service. The food is excellent.
