We eat here pretty regularly and I can't remember the last time I left without being completely satisfied with the service and the food. In fact this place truly delivers on the breakfast fare. Nothing fancy, but great variety and solid quality. I can't think...More

There is normally a long line. The good news is that it is there because this place is awesome and it goes pretty fast. Pancakes with apples were awesome. Excellent service

These were the best pancakes I've ever had. Not sure how pancake batter would vary much between restaurants but they hit the nail on the head. Must be very popular because there is a wait to get seated.

Hard not to love this pancake house. The challenge is not coming out stuffed! My go-to is the Junior Plate. Two small buttermilk pancakes and two slices of bacon. Just the right amount at a reasonable price. There's a reason there is always a line...More
