“Excellent breakfast eatery, but be prepared to wait”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

We stopped by this place after looking it up on Yelp following a soccer game nearby, and we were very pleased.

The reviewers did a nice job of setting expectations, so when we arrived and had to wait, there was no surprise. The waiting area though, is non-existent really, so if there are many people waiting, it will be uncomfortable. They had free coffee for waiting, but it was near the bathrooms - which is a weird place in every scenario.

Once seated, we looked around and the place is a bit tight with tables, and the noise is fairly loud when the place is packed - which it seems to always be from the reviewers.

The service staff came quickly, took our order and brought coffee and water quickly. The food was excellent for all 3 of us. They have crazy combinations of breakfast options, and we left very full and satisfied.

I would recommend this place highly and give it five stars if it had some open area for waiting - and the prices were ever so slightly lower.

“This Was Wonderful and I Don't Eat Breakfast”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

Wow! What fun finding the Breakfast Club in Farmington, like discovering a cozy breakfast nook. The decor is charming - it's says, "Get up!" with a light flowery atmosphere, smelling of fresh coffee and wait-staff buzzing about with trays of Tiramisu Pancakes and oven-baked French toast. I tried Kelly's Favorite Omelet with a side of Jumbo Sausage Links. Both were excellent, as was the coffee. It was busy, as to be expected on a Sunday morning, but there was plently of staff to fill water glasses and coffee mugs. The seating-time wait was reasonable and we were well-attended once seated. The prices were acceptable for the amount and quality of food - maybe a little more than iHop, but worth it given the varied menu and quality of food. You'll look forward to the chocolate-covered strawberry served at the end of the meal!

“The Best”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

A friendly atmosphere tops off savory tastes from A-One menu. All kinds of well prepared favorites plus a delicious variety of specially prepared items suitable for breakfast, brunch, or lunch.

“Pretty typical breakfast with great service”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

Nothing really stood out here food wise. Lots of similar place in lots of cities. Pretty standard choices of omelets, bowls, etc. The service was excellent and friendly.

“Catchy name, terrific food”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

For it's lack of visibility from the street, this place is worth placing on your "We gotta go there" list. The food was excellent. Period. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Fancy pancakes and waffles are their signature dishes, but they also have heavenly omelettes and other delicious breakfast and lunch items. Prices are very respectable, and I received a chocolate-covered strawberry with my check. If you're in the area, or having a weekend get-away at the Holiday Inn, this is a must try eatery. Be prepared to wait on the weekends after 10AM, especially on Sunday considering the church crowd. It really is worth the wait.
