My wife had the oatmeal with pecans which she liked very much. I had the french toast which was also very good. Service was fast and friendly.

The wife and I were on our way home from Chicago and saw this restaurant had good reviews. I had a corned beef hash skillet and 2 pancakes. The food was great,portions were large, and the service was great. They only bad side is that it is so far from our house!

Our office went for lunch/breakfast. Everyone's meals were huge and satisfying. The server was very good. My meal was excellent - tomato rosamarina soup and 1/2 chicken salad sandwich.

Average pancake house/diner type of place that we stopped at while driving thru Indiana. The food and coffee were good, but nothing outstanding. Service was good. The one odd thing about this place was that the bench in the booth we were sitting in was really high, my feet didn't touch the ground. I noticed it was the same in... More

Before heading home from a fun weekend at Notre Dame, we stopped at APH for some pancakes. My daughter and I split a skillet. The resulting split was more than enough for me. Pancakes were awesome. Our waitress was friendly and service was great. A busy restaurant usually means people like the food--- that was the case here.

It was my husband's birthday and I wanted to go to the best place in South Bend for breakfast. It was Sunday morning so we had to wait to be seated. Desk said 10-12 minutes but we were seated in less than 10. Service was great especially recognizing the place was busy. I had the blueberry pancakes that had blueberries... More

After having had a few lousy breakfasts while visiting South Bend we were lucky to find this gem. The eggs, country fried steak skillet and pancakes were excellent and the service was courteous and prompt.

Stopped for a Sunday morning breakfast and they must have thought I was a farmer with all the food they gave me. If you are seeking breakfast almost anything you can dream up will be on the huge breakfast menu. 6 pages of breakfast goodies. A delightful surprise: first thing the waitress arrived at my table with a saucer of... More

Needed a decent breakfast and thankfully this place didn't disappoint. Service was fast but friendly. Many options to choose from. Being an omelet lover - I ordered just a basic ham & cheese omelet which was HUGE! Hash browns were perfect. Orange juice is a must - freshly squeezed.
