Not only was there excellent service, but the food was stellar! First time to try a German pancake and the server offered great recommendations. Quiet atmosphere and pretty quaint. Would go back if and when I have the opportunity.

This place was amazing! Best German pancake that I've ever had. I can't wait to return when I'm back in Portland.

Stopped in for late breakfast as was rewarded with excellent service and top-notch food. Had a wonderful scramble with farm-fresh ingredients and outstanding rosemary-laced breakfast potatoes. My wife's corn pancakes were the real winners. This was our fourth visit here; always a sure bet.
