“Fast service and awesome food!”
Reviewed October 15, 2013 via mobile

Stopped to see if this place holds up to all the hype. Seated right away, ordered food off waiters recommendation, about 10 minutes later it was served! Pancakes are the best I have ever had! Sausage is also very good! Homemade for sure. Has a good unique flavor. I wish I lived closer! Highly recommend!

“Best restaurant breakfast ever!”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

Had Saturday brunch there in October around noon. Wait was about 25 minutes even though there were a lot of others waiting. Our server was busy but very friendly and gracious. Food came out quite quickly and it was delicious. I had the Jambalaya omelette and my wife had a shrimp and cheese omelette. She was surprised at the amount of shrimp in her's. They were large (3 egg but seemed larger) fluffy and filling. We both opted for pancakes over toast. They were really wonderful--thin an yet light. Even the syrup was outstanding. Highly recommend this award winning place for breakfast.

“Awesome Belgian Breakfast”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

We visited on a Tuesday morning around 10am and had about a 15-minute wait time. As other reviewers have noted, we loved the ‘text messaging’ and the ability to follow your place in the queue online. Once inside, we found the experience a bit more ‘bustling’ than we’d prefer, but it was very good overall.

For the food, I can’t say enough about how awesome the traditional Belgian apple pancake is. I wish it was available everywhere in the country, but since it’s not, take advantage whenever you can! We also had more traditional breakfast fare, including eggs and French toast with syrup (if you’re a powdered sugar fan, ask for extra when you order). The Belgian waffle was crispy with very good flavor and a strawberries on top.

If you’re a breakfast food fan, we’d definitely recommend this restaurant when you’re in the San Antonio area for its unique and comprehensive breakfast menu.

“Great breakfast spot”
Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

Heard this place was hard to get into, but we arrived mid- morning on a week day and got right in for our party of two. We were tempted to order the apex gel pannkuchken but knew it was too big for one. Settled for a great two egg breakfast for myself and French toast for my petite wife. She asked right away for a cart you for part of hers. Staff was great and we enjoyed a quiet couple breakfast before starting our way home.

“Great Pancakes”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

This place has a really good pancake basic pancake batter. They're light and fluffy and great tasting. Although these weren't the BEST pancakes I've ever had, they were quite good and we would return. Service was rather quick when we went and all the employees were friendly. Definite Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives place to check out when in San Antonio.
