The restaurant is divided into sections with stained glass, so it seems more intimate. In addition to a terrific array of pancakes, waffles,eggs and omelettes, they have added salads to the lunch items. This restaurant is very crowded on weekends and takes no reservations.

While it's a long wait on most weekends it's well worth it. They have a nice variety of regular and specialty breakfasts and they are all good. I particularly like their bacon.

We have been coming here for many,many years! Quality of food remains good. Even basic pancakes are great! While I have always loved the apple pancake and German pancake, I am now a big fan of the Danish garden! Great coffee and hot chocolate. Good any time of the day.

I visited early on a Sunday morning. The interior looked more like a fine steak house with the oak tables, nice trimwork and more subdued lighting. I ordered coffee, a glass of milk, and an omelet which was served with 3 pancakes. I usually eat a large breakfast, but I just couldn't finish it all. The omelet was huge with... More

The best pancake house on the North Shore. Their flapjacks are fantastic. Their bacon is crispy and thick but not greasy. Pigs in a blanket are also very good. I don't eat their egg dishes but from the steady flow of eggs Benedict from the kitchen it must be a favorite. Coffee is good but not great. Service is outstanding... More
