“Bright and Refreshing”
Reviewed August 1, 2014

We stopped here of a weekday morning looking for a better start on our day and this was a really nice choice. Too often restaurants in college areas don't deliver on their advertising but this was a real treat. The management is big on the Oregon Ducks and their entire sports program as witnessed by all the memorabilia on the wall but the only thing better than their school spirit was the food.

A lot of nice house made product including house made corned beef hash. Numerous pancake and waffles choices and typical American Breakfast choices. Our waitress seemed overloaded with customers -- so the service suffered a little -- but she was valiantly covering tables all over the resto and she did a good job for what she had been tasked to do.

The food arrived in reasonable time. Portions were average. Our meals were tasty and well pre parted.

The only negative was seeing a kitchen worker return from the mens room without having washed his hands... that was not encouraging and a little more training would be in order.

Reviewed July 27, 2014

Enjoyed the blueberry pancakes, service was attentive, never having to wait for a coffee cup to be filled. The place for breakfast when you are in Eugene, Oregon. Go Ducks,

“Great Breakfast - Even for Lunch”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

My 17 yo daughter and I ate here on a recent trip to Eugene. Went on the recommendation of my TripAdvisor family. Was not disappointed. Feels like an old-time breakfast restaurant. They have every kind of pancake, waffle, and other breakfast food you can imagine. I had some wonderful sourdough flapjacks. The service was excellent! I'll be there next time I'm in Eugene.
