Let me just start off with any place that you normally have to wait 10-15 minutes before getting your name called to be seated would suck. However, I've been to this place several times and waited even longer because it's JUST THAT GOOD! Everyone from the host to the bussers, to the waitresses are all on the same team with... More

This is the best breakfast in town but unfortunately everyone knows it!!! Get there early or you'll need to wait. Even if you wait it moves pretty quickly. Gotta get an omelet but consider sharing as they are HUGE!

The food is excellent just as the one in Eden Prairie, service not that good. My husband, daughter and I went for lunch, we were seated in the last table by the window and the kitchen. Very unconformable place, very tight, and all the waitresses were passing all the time by us, plus the noise from the kitchen. I was... More

I am not a person that loves franchise restaurants but Original is a true exception. I eat at Original anywhere I travel. At the Edina restaurant they have an extra room in the back to handle the over- flow. This place is so busy whenever you go. We usually call in and put our names on a wait list, but... More

Great breakfast, large portions, nice atmosphere, great service, and worth it! It's better to arrive early on the weekend unless you don't mind waiting. And honestly, the portions are large! My hash browns were the size of a small plate.

Not a bargain breakfast, plan to spend $15-20 per person...But always try a side of double apple wood smoked bacon.... and the hash browns are very good with a hint of... More

They have an extensive vegan and gluten free menu (see pics)! Vegan is especially hard to find when it comes to breakfast food so going there is a real treat! My friend had banana pancakes and I had the pecan pancakes. I've also tried their french toast and regular pancakes in the past and would say the pecan were my... More

We arrived at this restaurant around 10 am on a Tuesday and there was already a line but it moved relatively fast. Everyone from the host to our server was very friendly. The food was very good and eye pleasing. From tasty hot chocolate, chocolate chips and whip cream to eggs Benedict with potato pancakes yum ! The menu is... More

The wait it worth it. Cozy atmosphere. Generous helpings. The bacon is incredibly thick! The apple pancake is more like a desert than breakfast.
