“Omelettes....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

There were huge! It was hot and nothing but delicious! Our pancakes were good - they were cold, though. The hours should be extended for dinner - they close at 3:00PM!

“Breakfast”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

We tried this restaurant rather than eating in our hotel. The food was average. The pancakes were ok. The service was very good.

“DELICIOUS FOOD”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

This place is RIGHT next to my favorite hotel, The Bethesda Court Hotel. When you get back from NIH and you are starving, this is the place to be. Serves breakfast and lunch until 3pm. Hearty portions, reasonably priced, fast service, friendly staff

“My favorite breakfast place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

I stumbled upon this jewel of a restaurant in Bethesda on a trip last year and was so delighted with the strawberry waffles that I made a point to stay again in Bethesda just so I could visit the restaurant. This trip I selected the blueberry waffles and they were indeed tasty! The syrup was warm and contained plump blueberries. The waffle had blueberries baked in the batter. I was impressed with the variety of offerings....eggs, crepes, pancakes, waffles. There is something for everyone to enjoy.
