The food and atmosphere here is just OK. The service was adequate. There is nothing special about this place that would make me want to visit again.

We love this place. Best pancakes ever. My husband is obsessed with the orange juice machine. Great fresh OJ, but make sure you order ice or it's warm. Prices are good. Recommend to anyone who likes breakfast.
