We stopped here on our bus tour. It is cool but not much to do longer than 20 to 30 mins. The restaurant smelled great but we had eaten already.

I have never had a bad meal here. I usually just go for the awesome strawberry waffles. They are always so light and fluffy, with fresh strawberrys and lots of whipped cream.
