Visited this restaurant again and the Dutch Baby--a baked pancake with high walls served with powdered sugar, lemon and syrup is outstanding. The apple pancake is a special treat for big appetites, loaded with apples, cinnamon, brown sugar and well---yum.

Ordered a senior plate, a German pancake, a corned beef hash and a Michael’s Benedict. All were good sized portions and great tasting. Service was excellent - friendly, frequent and fast. Nice environment with Halloween decor that is fun for kids too.
