We stopped here for a big breakfast before a trip to the Aquarium and Southport. We stopped here because it was packed every morning we were here, and were weren't disappointed! The pancakes were top notch! I ordered the apple walnut cakes, and the wife ordered the blueberry. Both were made with fresh fruit, which in my book is a... More

I had breakfast here with some friends. It was busy but no too crowded. We were seated promptly and food followed just as quick. I found the food very fresh and cooked to order.

I drove by about 10 am on a Saturday morning and noticed the line was out the door. Since I wasn't in a hurry I decided to stop in. I was pleasantly surprised by how fast the line moved. Breakfast would have been worth the wait no matter how long the lines.

Ate here on a Sunday morning with a group of friends. The service was excellent and the food was too. Everything came out quickly and exactly as ordered. They do get busy on weekends, so there can be a wait for a table but it's worth it.

There aren't a lot of choices for breakfast that were within walking distance of our hotel. My husband I I both ordered eggs. He had a bacon egg and cheese on a biscuit and I had eggs and the loaded home-fries with cheese. They were quite yummy. Our server Lisa was wonderful and I like that they "round-up" your bill...

Had breakfast here one morning while I was staying at the Courtyard Marriott across the street. This is a great little place, and I had a very nice waitress and an excellent omelet. I also like the way they raise money for charity - it's easy to round off your bill to the next highest dollar. Will definitely check this... More
