Too much for one person to eat. The food is so fresh and omg the milkshakes. The place itself seems not to have been renovated since the 1950's but it adds to its charm. Get there early a line forms quickly.

This crowded, busy breakfast joint is a University of Wisconsin student favorite and it is easy to see why. It is a small place, close to Camp Randall Stadium. The portion sizes are generous, the service is fast and friendly ad the food tastes terrific. Be prepared to wait during the prime breakfast time but be advised that this place is well worth the short wait. Not a place for young children as it is crowded and busy but it is a place to pack down your breakfast carbs in large quantities.

You will wait, it will be crowded, but it is worth it!

We had chili cheese omelette
with hash browns (homemade) Comes with toast , two eggs scrambled (more like 3-4 eggs) corn beef hash and toast coffee and orange juice $16.00 and you take home half of it! Everything was delish!

It is a diner, tons of college kids crowded but they make sure you get a seat everything is homemade. We arrived 11:30 and when I seen the lunch entrees they were huge, fries homemade seriously you must try it!

I've only been there once but it was a great breakfast menu for the price and it was delicious. It's a pretty small place will prepare for it to be a little crowded.

as long as you're prepared for long waits on weekends (behind hung-over college kids), you'll find a great classic Wisconsin breakfast joint. great griddle cakes, omelets, and milkshakes to wash it all down...
