Stopped for lunch and had their homemade corned beef hash, two eggs, and 3 light as air Swedish Pancakes. Everything coming out of the kitchen looked and smelled awesome. Will be back there soon!

The blueberry pancakes were light and fluffy. Everyone enjoyed breakfast. The menu selection has something for everyone. Worth the wait in line. Will return again on my next visit.

This location is authentic old-time breakfast. The pancakes are fluffy, slightly sweet, and delicious. Service is great and prices are good. One of my standby favorites!
