Breakfast was very good, not greasy and good flavor. Huge waffles!! While it was nothing fancy, it was great homestyle comfort food. I would eat breakfast here everyday! Staff was very friendly.

The food here is amazing, I especially loved the Oreo, Reese's, and s'more pancakes. This more than made flying across the country worth it.

Wide variety of breakfast items, great coffee. I ate Irish Eggs Bene- a non-traditional take with corn beef hash. Delicious. Can be loud as it’s a very small space to seat so many people, only reason I’ve taken away a star.

Great breakfast fare, with a wide variety of pancake and French toast flavors. Great crispy bacon. Fast service. Go early and prepare to wait...but it’s worth it.
