Bring the family here. Kids pancakes better than I-Hop offerings and adult choices aren't bad either. My son devoured the S'Mores pancakes and he's a really picky eater! Definitely will return next time in town.

We had the most delicious healthy pancakes with huge fresh blueberries that they flash froze during their natural season. Service is fast and if a line, you'll get in quickly.
