The pancakes were excellent. The senior breakfast of 3 pancakes with link sausage and one egg was just the right amount. Very good maple syrup. The tables are a little too close together to the point you feel like you are in the conversation of...More

Pancakes were VERY good. I wish I would have got a topping bc they were amazing even plain. My husband got the meatlovers omlette with sausage. Their omlettes are huge and fluffy. Our waitress was very sweet and provided excellent service!

We took our track team here for breakfast & everything was delicious. I had the peanut butter chip pancakes and those were awesome. Some of our athletes got omelettes and they were the biggest omelettes I've ever seen. Service was terrific too.

Very good service and food. It was extremely crowed but the wait wasn't bad for a party of 3. Food was served hot and the table was silent as we enjoyed (very good sign lol). Prices were also very reasonable.

Come hungry. The food and service is always good. Sometimes the omelets are a little dry, but if you ask them not to overcook, they will be perfect.
