I met a friend here for breakfast on good Friday. We got there about 7:30 am I was a little nervous reading other reviews about how busy they are and the wait time. We had no wait when we got there but by the time we left they were packed, the front of the restaurant and outside was full of... More

I don't stop by the place that frequently, but when I do the food is great. The portion can be so enormous that it's one of the reason I don't get there that often.

Stopped on Sunday morning to grab breakfast before heading home. Always super busy, especially weekend mornings. No reservations, so patience is a must. Great breakfast food items served hot and fast. LARGE portions so come hungry and order wisely. Will definitely return.

I have been able to eat at this restaurant only one time in over ten years! The food was excellent and the service was great. My only problem with this restaurant is that you can NEVER get a table there unless you want to wait over an hour! They don't take reservations or do call ahead seating which is annoying... More

Still my favorite! While the 49er Flapjacks are my favorite, I also like an Oven baked Dutch and omelette' crepes and... well pretty much everything. My grandchildren love going with me because I always share the delicious thick cut bacon with them. Great place to bring your family. The staff is just so nice.

Portions here are huge. Omelets are filled with cheese and big enough for two meals. The apple pancake is topped with granny smith apples and thick cinnamon glaze and is huge. Big selection of pancakes, omelets are served with three pancakes, the hash is made fresh and there are crepes, eggs any style and the bacon is out of this... More
