This is a great breakfast place we ate at after sunrise Easter Service. Everyone was so nice, the food was great and the price was affordable.

I've been there several times hoping it would be better the next time. I'm sorry to say it never was. There are a few solid and loyal customers who eat there but no outsiders return.

Quick, attentive seating - pancakes that fill the dinner plate. I like my eggs and bacon well done. They were cooked to order. You get a lot of food for a good price.

Food was ok but the service was so rude...we were told when we asked for warm syrup that it's their "policy" to not serve warm syrup. Also watched the owner rudely ask a pregnant woman and her family to wait outside (in 95^ degree heat)...More

I was expecting your typical country style pancake house with your basic southern sides. Not only did they have your old standbys but some fun spins, too. The pumpkin bread french toast was amazing!

I almost titled it "plastic fantastic" but the wife said this was too mean. But I thought the waffles and pancakes had a bit of a rubbery-plastic consistency. Their link sausage was quite good however, as was the French toast. Here the biscuit was average....More

They don't have an outdoor space for eating, only inside. No pets allowed. If you're looking for a pet friendly breakfast place try Hang Ten - you can eat on the outdoor deck there with your dog.

Can't find a menu online, but they have typical breakfast foods: pancakes, waffles, omlettes, sausage gravy & biscuits. Very reasonably priced and very good. I had stuffed french toast and a side of loaded homefries that... More
