Just had breakfast there today and ordered the Eggs Benedict which was listed under "House Specialties." They were marginal because the eggs were overcooked - a poached egg is supposed to have a runny yolk and one was almost hard boiled and the other soft...More

This is not your standard IHOP or Denny's, but rather a quality pancake house that happens to serve great Omelettes also. If you are a fan of the German Pancake, this is your 'go to' place. The lines are typically long, and the side orders...More

The best, fluffiest omelette I've ever had. I could not believe the portions, and it was light and delicious. The blueberry pancakes were quite good too. If this was closer, I would be in real trouble.

Went here with my wife for breakfast one morning because multiple people raved about it. The wait was a bit, not a huge problem since most good places we expect a wait. Ordered an omelet and pancakes between the two of us and were underwhelmed....More

Excellent, crowded breakfast place. Food is excellent with a broad menu. Their plain old scrambled eggs are just super. I order them with pancakes (the "2 by 4"). It's priced mid-range and the service is great. My wife and I go often. Furthermore, many families...More
