I'm not sure if it's quite worth the hype (or the wait sometimes) but the food is good, the service is decent and the style is cool. Pretty typical hipster style converted house.

This was a great breakfast with a big crowd this morning. Waffle for me and bacon and eggs for my son. Recommend this place highly.

I ordered the stack of three pancakes…served with maple syrup…delicious! My only complaint was that it cost $1.50 to get a second little cup of syrup. There’s no way anyone can eat that many pancakes with so little syrup but I will get over it.

I had the Egg Scramble special with chorizo and my husband had the griddle cakes - both were cooked to perfection and portion size was huge. We had to wait to get in but this is a well run ship and the wait wasn't long....More

This place seems to be popular with locals but I just don’t see what the fuss is about. Our pancakes were very dry. The pork chop was an interesting option but turned out to be simply fine. The waitress was very unfriendly; she didn’t smile...More

We had breakfast there at 9 so I definitely think the hours are backwards.

Definitely! It has to be one of their busiest days! Come early or bring something to read or someone to talk to, as You may have to wait depending on your arrival time. It's worth the wait!
