The place is clean and organized and has a homey atmosphere. The staff and nice and I received my food in a timely manner. The price is a little expensive and I still like Perkins pancakes better. Also be aware that this place closed at 3pm.

49er flapjacks are to die for, but don't be fooled...they will fill you up like you wouldn't believe. All the food is set up so you will need a box...but you get 2 meals for the price of one. It's not cheap, but the food is the highest quality and the long tenured servers are very attentive and professional. Excellent... More

There is a reason for that - consistently good food. However, be advised, the wait if part of the experience.

They decided to upcharge us for egg whites? Really? They waitress never checked on us and didn't fill our drinks till it was time to bring the bill. My wife ordered hashbrowns and they never came. The food was good but this location seemed to struggle with customer service compared to other original pancake houses we have been to. We... More

It's so popular that we had to wait a short while to be seated. The food is excellent. Always enjoy it. Typical breakfast offerings but incredibly done. Omelets are four eggs and fluffy. The bacon is to die for! The best restaurant bacon I've ever had. Only open until about 3:00 pm.

Extremely busy place so use the no wait app to get in line before you get there. Breakfast abounds! I had buckwheat pancakes (the small stack is 3 cakes) and they were very good; 2 scrambled egg whites on the side were like 4 in size! My husband had the corned beef hash with eggs on top - good but... More

Best bacon on the planet! Busy place, but worth the wait! The service is always great as well. They make everything fresh and you can tell in the taste.

We hit this place every few weeks for a breakfast meet-up with friends. I love the pumpkin pancakes and the omelettes. The service at the Eden Prairie location is always great. The staff is warm, friendly and you can tell that everyone is having fun!
