When the food is good they will come especially on the weekends. They specialize in pancakes and almost everything comes with a side of pancakes so adjust your appetite. The menu is large and they offer specials. If you like orange juice note that it...More

This place is awesome. There was no line on a 90 degree Saturday morning in September which was a treat. Huge menu with huge servings - every dish comes with a side of pancakes so bring your appetite. The egg white vegetable omelette is baked...More
