The service was very good. The menu provides an extensive choice of waffles as well as other breakfast items. The portions on the Griddle items is huge. The Booths are a bit cramped and no tables were available at 7AM. (only booths and counter).

If you're looking for an average restaurant this is the one. Coffee a little better than some restaurants, staff really friendly and good service. Why a three star, not sure what happened but the bacon was really bad tasting for both my and my husband....More
