Been coming here since it opened and have never been dissatisfied. Exceptional menu and the food quality and service are every bit the equal. Be prepared to wait during peak times. Also be aware that this is strictly breakfast and lunch, so don't show up past 2:00ish. Pleasant atmosphere and not really jammed in even when busy. The only downside to this place is the price of many of the items...but, hey, how many places can you go for a six egg omelet? Gotta try the Dutch Boy or apple pancake....I've never seen anything like them. Bacon is exceptionally thick. Fresh squeezed orange juice. YUMMMM..

My husband and I occasionally get here for breakfast--it's about 20 minutes away from us, so you know it's good if we drive that far just to eat here!

Portions are large, as is the menu. They have so many great options--we've never been disappointed! The restaurant is a decent size, so it can seat a number of people--which is a good thing, considering how crowded it can get at peak times. The servers are usually very busy, which is not necessarily their fault. To me, it seems like they can be spread a bit too thin, which is unfortunate.

A very yummy spot with lots of options- just make sure they are open before you go! They have limited hours!

Small portions of food on a very large plate. Food was very bland. No flavor at all. I ordered eggs sunny side up. The eggs were the size of a dime.

Service was so so. When we spike to the manager he never said I'm sorry. Did ask to replace the food. We just left.

Its very said as we have been in a few of these across the mid west and it has been great. Not this location

seems like all of rocky river and fairview park show up here on saturday and sunday morning. usually a bit of a wait (15-20 minutes) but is worth it. simply a very good place to have a wonderful breakfast. eggs, ham steak, pancakes. all tasty and served hot. friendly and helpful staff. if you are looking for a big breakfast - this is the place.
