Service was a little slow but friendly. Gluten free pancakes and regular pancakes were great. Great bacon. Not good eggs. Seemed like egg substitute. A little pricey for what you get.

We had a small wait but it was totally worth the wait. Food was great and plentiful we all took home food. Wait staff was fun and patient since one person was delayed because of rain.

Pancakes were good. Coffee was terrible - very weak. Good service and close to Disneyland. Varied menu.

I wondered why there were little take out containers on the ledge nearby, and I quickly realized upon receiving my breakfast. Based on reviews on here we went for breakfast early one morning before heading out to Universal Studios and it was terrific. I recommend a combo that comes with pancakes as my wife ordered just a waffle and that... More

Fast, friendly service here was amazing! There was a 40 minute wait but it was well worth it. We were greeted very warmly by the host (maybe the owner?). Our waitress was very helpful in answering our questions and giving suggestions. My husband had the Spanish omelet with buttermilk pancakes and I had the vegetable omlet with coconut pancakes. While... More

What can I say...this place was awesome. Food was so yummy, service was excellent and great price. Will definitely be hitting this place up next time we r in Anaheim! Hubby had the bacon waffle and I had the ground beef scramble with a side of pancakes, everything tastes fresh and plates were filling.

This place never ran out of people. There's always a line--because of good food and dining experience. They have a wide variety of pancakes (of course!!!) to choose from. But not only that, they also have good omelettes and overflowing coffee. I always bring friends who are visiting Orange County for the first time to this place... Shouldn't be missed... More

The food here was excellent and large (which prepared us for our huge day in Disneyland!). We ordered a regular eggs/bacon/hashbrown breakfast with a side of pancakes with strawberries and whipped cream. Everything was served quickly and the wait staff was amazing. I wish their coffee was stronger, but other than that, I would highly recommend this place.

Great buttermilk pancakes. Don't miss this breakfast if you are in the area. Get there early as it fills fast. Great service as well.
