Very good food, nice place, always enjoy with family. But they are always very crowded on weekends and you have to wait for a table.

10 of us had breakfast together and everyone was impressed. Omelettes are delicious and huge. German pancake is impressive, and the 49er pancakes are a classic. This is the best breakfast restaurant in the area.

Just had breakfast there today and ordered the Eggs Benedict which was listed under "House Specialties." They were marginal because the eggs were overcooked - a poached egg is supposed to have a runny yolk and one was almost hard boiled and the other soft...More
