Surprisingly I was talked into to going here and was quite satisfied. I always rate a place the way the staff makes me feel upon first arriving to any establishment. And upon entering this restaurant I was greeted with pleasantness all the way until I left. I have never seen such an extensive list to choose from. And they give you a great amount of food for one person.
I was taken there for Valentines and by the time i was leaving Amy's was crowded! The place is not too big so make sure you go early! I will return again.

I've been wanting to try this place since it opened and finally got the chance yesterday (2/10/13). We almost never go out for breakfast but decided to give Amy's a try. We arrived just after 9am and were seated immediately. I'll warn you though that by the time we left around 10am, the restaurant was packed and the waiting area was filled with people waiting to be seated.

The hostess who sat us took our drink orders and brought them right out. Our waiter came quickly and we waved him off to give us a chance to look at the extensive menu. We opted for french toast. I had the Banana Crunch which had walnuts, brown sugar, and a very generous amount of fresh bananas. My wife had the Cinnamon Almond. We also ordered home fries to share.

The servings were large, bigger than either of us could possibly have eaten. While some people find that to be a plus, I actually don't. I'd much rather have them serve less and charge less. I don't need to walk out with a whole other meal to take home. The French toast was 3 very generous slices (Texas toast) with abundant toppings. We each ate 2 slices and that was a stretch. The serving of home fries could easily have served 4 people. So this would be great if you were going with a family or a group of friends willing to share, which would also help keep the cost per person more modest. For 2 of us it was overkill so keep that in mind if you go. You might want to share a meal. We definitely would next time around.

Everything we had was delicious and served quickly by a friendly attentive server. As for price, the French toast was over $9. That was on the high side but, as I said, was more than one meal's worth of food. I'd love to see them decrease the serving to 2 slices and drop the price by a couple of dollars. That would make it just right. The home fries were $3.95 but again was enough for 4 people to split. I'd rather have the $2 serving that serves 2 people rather than wasting half of it. They need a small and a large order size.

If you do go, try and find a coupon. Money Mailer has one regularly. We got 15% off with that. There is an iPhone app for those coupons if they don't get delivered to your house.

We want to give them a try for lunch or dinner sometime and check out some of the other menu items. Looks like it could become a regular on our restaurant rotation list. By the way, the place isn't quiet - pretty loud actually. A good place for families with kids but not for a romantic meal.

We ate here on a Sunday afternoon shortly before closing time, so the restaurant wasn't crowded, and the service was quick and efficient. Our server did have to come back several times before we finally decided what we wanted to order. As others have mentioned, the menu is quite extensive, and we never made it past the breakfast items! We had the Italian Hot Dog omelette (chopped hot dogs, potatoes, onions and peppers) and the Country Biscuit (two biscuits topped with sausage patties, poached eggs and country gravy. The omelette was a trip down Memory Lane because hot dogs and eggs were a breakfast staple when we were growing up. It sounds like an odd combination, but it's really quite tasty, and we enjoyed it. The Country Biscuit platter was delicious. The biscuits were huge and the eggs were perfectly poached. The gravy needed a bit more pepper, but wasn't bad. Both platters came with a very large serving of potatoes, and the omelette was served with two pieces of toast. The prices were reasonable considering the size of the portions. Neither of us was able to finish our meals, so we packed them up and had the leftovers for breakfast the next day. We'll return to Amy's, but next time we're going to read the menu online before we leave the house so we'll be prepared to order!

I wanted to like Amy's, but it didn't do it for me. The waitress took forever to come to our table and I thought it was bc they were so busy, but after reading other reviews I see its a trend there. The menu is too much! I stuck with a breakfast sandwich which was subpar and not even hot. My date had some pancake platter with a 3 egg omelette and breakfast meat. The pancakes were tasty but very generic. The omelette was clearly not 3 eggs, floppy, greasy, thin, and not to mention HIGHLIGHTER YELLOW and fake looking. It seems like everything is frozen food that they just reheat or something. No bueno, we will not be going back. People who hype this place up must enjoy really generic tasting food. Yikes.

We just had breakfast at Amy's in Cherry Hill on the recommendation of a friend. What a treat! The food is delicious with all kinds of fun choices. The decor is fun and welcoming (and it is not too noisy) -- kind of like an old-fashioned diner/soda shop. Staff; is accomodating and welcoming. Pancakes were light and fluffy themselves and the differing options are almost overwhelming. When I couldn't choose between apple and cinnamon-topped and banana crunch, they said I could mix and match. Prices are reasonable and there is plenty to be had -- I highly recommend sharing. Breakfast available any time of day, but lots of sandwiches and salads and wraps I am looking forward to trying. BEWARE - portions are large. This place is kid-friendly. There are lots of specials. They clearly care about customers. They are off the beaten track but easy to find, plenty of parking and highly recommend.
