I visited early on a Sunday morning. The interior looked more like a fine steak house with the oak tables, nice trimwork and more subdued lighting. I ordered coffee, a glass of milk, and an omelet which was served with 3 pancakes. I usually eat a large breakfast, but I just couldn't finish it all. The omelet was huge with... More

The best pancake house on the North Shore. Their flapjacks are fantastic. Their bacon is crispy and thick but not greasy. Pigs in a blanket are also very good. I don't eat their egg dishes but from the steady flow of eggs Benedict from the kitchen it must be a favorite. Coffee is good but not great. Service is outstanding... More

The Apple pancake is soooo good. Usually I take 1/2 home for later! Another great pick is the wheat pancakes, Canadian Bacon and fresh OJ.

Always serves good breakfast, waiters always very nice. My only complaint is that soda is served in a can. I like my soda with breakfast but prefer fountain soda. Something about serving soda in a can makes me want to go elsewhere.

We went to have breakfast on Sunday at 11am. There was a long line of about 50 people ahead of us. The line moved very quickly and we were seated within 20 minutes. Service was quick once we sat down. We ordered the western omelet with pancakes, the Baby Dutch and freshly squeezed orange juice. Everything was cooked perfectly and... More
