Service was friendly and excellent. We were tempted with the pancakes but decided on steak. A really good choice. Good sized steak perfectly cooked. Excellent carafe of Merlot. Will be going back for the pancakes.

The pancakes are huge, great tasting, and have generous toppings. Service was good despite large groups visiting at the same time each time we were there. We loved the place so much we came back for lunch the next day.

If we want to go for a Dutch pancake, this is our favorite place. Great variety, superb service, kids are welcome. Pancakes are huge and very tasty! You can choose from a huge variety or just improvise yourself.
