Wanted breakfast in the afternoon and eggs cooked perfectly, and hash browns and sausage were delicious. Ordered a short stack of pancakes and they were just as good. Never had a bad meal here.More

My wife and I ate here after driving to Pocatello from Salt Lake City. She had a sandwich and I had chili. We both thought them average or better. The restaurant is very close to downtown and ISU. Would recommend it!

Went here for breakfast. I had the triple berry crapes and they were delicious. Biscuits and gravy, the best we ever had! The service was fast, although we went during the week. I hear weekends are very busy.
