Instead of my free hotel breakfast, I came here every morning before work. At the time, one of the breakfast specials was blueberry pancakes and I had them. Every. Day. I'm sure that there are other great things on the QC Coffee and Pancake House menu, but I didn't see any reason to mess with perfection.

We've been here many times. This is the best breakfast place we've found in the area by a LARGE margin. My daughter and husband are addicted to the cinnamon pancakes. You won't find them on the menu, so ask for them. If you love cinnamon rolls you will not be disappointed! I've always enjoyed my meal and I continue to... More

We had breakfast here for the first time this morning. The food was great. The coffee was very good and your cup never was empty. The price is right and the staff are very friendly. This just might be our new breakfast spot. Highly recommend.

This place is awesome. Yep, you will see a line, but they move tables so fast it shouldn't even be a consideration. The food and service are top notch. It is almost a shame that they have TWO comparable or better competitors (Moline & Bett.). This would be the top choice in any other community. Love that it is close... More

Well prepared food. Service has always been friendly and good. My favorite place for breakfast in the QC. Restaurant is nothing fancy, but it's clean and well run. Has room to accommodate our men's group of nine individuals.

After waiting in line and drooling over all the amazing food food brought out of the kitchen, finally got the healthy choice omelet with mixed greens and pancakes. Everything was amazing! My only complaint would be that the menu did not say there would be onions in the omelet, so be careful to ask for all the ingredients if this... More

If you like breakfast food, this is the place. One of the best places in the QC. Nothing fancy, just good home style food, with nice people.

We had a big group and we're able to get seated right away (we were there around 9am during the week) There were no complaints from anyone about the food or the service, which is a rarity! I had the country fried skillet with the gravy on the side and it was awesome!

New favorite breakfast place. Excellent skillets with the best potatoes! Their cinnamon roll pancakes are a must have!! No syrup or butter needed! Great service and waits can be long, but well worth it!!
