We had a large party for breakfast. The food was wonderful and came out fast and correctly. The staff was extremely polite and helpful. Would eat there again and often. The best pancakes I ever had.

49er flapjacks at noon. Three large unrolled sweet crepes with sweet butter and imitation maple syrup. A large glass of fresh squeezed orange juice. No sides or extras $14. You won't believe this could possibly fill you up. Plus they're delicious. Come hungry.

I don't think the wait staff like it when you know what you want before you walk through the door. Perhaps they feel rushed if you don't take the ten minutes to settle in. I was alone.

My waitress was excellent - friendly, efficient, fast. The potato pancake was good, too. Easy to get to from the Best Western.

Ordered a ham & cheese omelet and it was fantastic. Ample portion, fluffy eggs, LOTS of cheese, cooked just right. I got large tomato slices instead of the typical carb choices as a side and added the tomatoes to the omelet. We also ordered a side of bacon: five large slices of thick, delicious meat cooked just right. Service was friendly & perfect, food arrived quick and hot, coffee and water glasses were always full. Glad we ate here. Will recommend to others. Warning: Menu can be difficult to order from if watching carb intake.

I eat here twice weekly and have been coming for 20 years. The staff is terrific. The quality of food is good to excellent. Prices are high, but this is about as good as you can get in Salem except for Word of Mouth Bistro.. The atmosphere is terrific -- plenty of room, and you can hear your table mates. Weekends are very crowded unless you arrive by 8 a.m. They're very responsive to your needs and will cook to order.
