This place can get packed on weekends. There is always a wait time but they do serve you quick . I would recommend if your looking for a new place to have breakfast instead of Denny's or IHOP.

A lady served us breakfast after an attitude ridden host plonked us right adjacent to the noisy serving area. An oriental lady served us omelette and sausage links but I ordered french crepes...

Some locals told us about this place. It was just what we were looking for. We had a nice greeting from the host. The waitress was warm and professional. We had Swedish pancakes with whipped cream and eggs and hash browns. There were plenty of great choices. The food was a generous serving and delicious. We enjoyed our breakfast!

Wandering in on a whim. Completely shocked. This place is one of those hidden gems. Keep in mind I only had breakfast (California Omelet) but it was so delicious. I have since returned twice.

Breakfast here is famous across the entire Bay Area. The Hash Benedict, the Veggie Scramble, the Apple Swedish Pancakes, and the traditional Benedict are just some of my favorites. Come early to avoid the wait, and get a cup of coffee to enjoy too!

Very good place for breakfast. The place is always busy on the weekends. In spite of the waiting list, the place is large and the wait time is very acceptable. Good food at reasonable pricing.

The 15 min wait was well worth it. The ligonberry butter pancakes were great. Service was good despite being packed on a busy Sunday morning.
