“Good food and good prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

I visited this restuarant with some co-workers. We got there at a very busy time but service was still great! I was a little disappointed in the buttermilk pancakes but my friend who ordered the specialty pancakes was quite satisfied. The quality of the bacon, eggs, and hashbrowns and the coffee was excellent.

“so many breakfast options!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Went here since we missed the hotel breakfast and I've been to a few of these back in Ohio and this one was no surprise: great breakfast but always a wait! The wait was only about 15ish mins and there is a nice fountain/courtyard area to walk around or sit near. Anything from waffles, to pancakes, to eggs, to crepes are all here! Also must try the hand-squeezed orange juice!

“Great Service, Good Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

We happened to be in Bethesda when there was a major power outage due to a strong storm. We did not feel like eating at the hotel so we took a walk and found this place by accident. It is a little hard to find but well worth it. They had power and when we arrived ther was a small line outside this restaurant. We were seated quickly but by the time we left the line was very long to get in. Everyone was friendly and they did not rush us out. They have a extensive breakfast menu and everything that came out of the kitchen looked great including our eggs benedict and pecan waffles. Very good food.
