This is a must stop place when in town! My kids make me take them here for dinner sometimes. The bacon is awesome as is everything there. You will love it here I guarantee it!

Took our adult daughter there for birthday breakfast. Place is loud! Like bowling alley on league night loud. Server takes order, food runners auction off food at the table; "who had this, who has that?" Sante Fe omelette tasted like warm cotton with oregano. Figuring the pancakes would be better since it's a pancake house....wrong! I've had better pancakes in... More

This is our go-to place for weekend brunches, especially when we have guests in town. Plus, this is my 6yr old son's hands down favorite brunch venue! Great food and great service!

Awesome breakfast place. Expect to wait in line on weekend mornings/lunch. Great Belgium pancake that is a fun monster size to eat. Omelets, crepes, etc. also good. Lots of people rave about the apple pancake. I prefer to just sample someone elses.

The lines on the week-end can be discouraging which is why we started ordering from their carry out menu. We were not disappointed at all. Our little ones were able to eat at home, the adults were more relaxed, and the food was as excellent as when served in house. No reason to stand in line when you crave one... More

I love the banana crepes here and love to treat myself sometimes. I'll eat them at any time of day. My grandchildren love to have dinner when they come for a visit. Great kids menu.

I have been to this restaurant many times over the last few years, but it has recently REALLY improved. Most notably, the coffee (I drink decaf), was really excellent. I opted for the Dutch baby, since it was the February discounted special, and it was made perfectly (sometimes it can be raw in the middle. Like Swedish pancakes, very tricky... More

This very popular breakfast spot is always delicious. The atmosphere is warm but busy, with good service and ample servings. Watch out for long lines on weekends, but as the title says, the bacon is outstanding.

Long lines (especially Sunday brunch) tell you just how good this place is. Happily, they're pretty good at managing the crowds, so the waits aren't terrible. On the rare occasions when I've been able to resist the fabulous apple pancakes, I've found the Dutch Baby pancakes and their omelettes are also really good.

A glenview staple. Been good for a long time and I don't see that changing. Despite lines on weekends the staff communicates well and treats people with respect. All of the pancakes are outstanding. The non breakfast foods are a little hit or miss. But why go if you don't want pancakes?

Thank MarkJMinneapolis
