“Great breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2014

Stopped in for breakfast with a large group, but we were accommodated and seated very quickly. The food was served in very generous portions and tasted great. Pancakes are some of the best I've ever had! Service was good too. Seating is a bit cramped though.

“Very good neighborhood breakfast spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2014

Crowded and a little chaotic but great service, great breakfast offerings, from the healthy (greek yoghurt and fruit) or some decadent omelettes or massively fluffy french toast.

“Best fish and chips ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2014 via mobile

Oh man. My wife and I had fish and chips and hilly cheesesteak. Great stuff. Finished with red velvet cake and the raspberry coffee cake (awesome). You can't go wrong with this place guys. I loved it.

“Perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2014

Enjoyed two brilliant American style breakfasts in a cozy atmosphere. Food and service was excellent and prices were reasonable considering the amount you got. Everything was between $10-15 and varied from American pancakes to omelettes. Buttermilk pancakes and French toast was amazing - couldn't fault anything.
