Buckwheat pancakes, love that I can get them here. Come early and be prepared to wait a bit. It’s busy and in demand and Good. Come for the food, the fun, the ambiance and the nostalgia.

The line outside was long but moved quickly - about a half hour wait on a Friday morning. The food is amazing. Our table tried everything from eggs to waffles and pancakes. Everyone was full and happy when we left.
