WARNING, when your 12-ur-old orders the chocolate pancakes, don't let him order anything else, because he won't be able to finish....the cakes are Huge and Delicious. I also recommend the star spangled banner omelet-4 eggs. The service is fast and very fruendly. And the menu choices are AMAZING. HUGE MENU!!! LOVED IT

My husband and I stopped here for breakfast while travelling over the road, and I'm SO GLAD we did! This restaurant was amazing! We both ordered breakfast and the portions were VERY generous. The food arrived quickly and tasted delicious. The service was also very good; our waitress was attentive, without being annoying by checking in with us too frequently.... More

Good breakfast place with extensive menu. Very generous portions. Busy, but friendly service nonetheless. Visiting from out of town, but we would definitely make a point of coming back here next time we're in South Bend.. Always pleased to see crepes on the menu as a "lighter" alternative to pancakes.

Very extensive breakfast menu. The food tastes great and the portions are very generous. I had their Biscuits and Gravy since that isn't on the menu at my house. It was delicious and was accompanied by excellent hash browns.

The wife and I were on our way home from Chicago and saw this restaurant had good reviews. I had a corned beef hash skillet and 2 pancakes. The food was great,portions were large, and the service was great. They only bad side is that it is so far from our house!

Our office went for lunch/breakfast. Everyone's meals were huge and satisfying. The server was very good. My meal was excellent - tomato rosamarina soup and 1/2 chicken salad sandwich.

Average pancake house/diner type of place that we stopped at while driving thru Indiana. The food and coffee were good, but nothing outstanding. Service was good. The one odd thing about this place was that the bench in the booth we were sitting in was really high, my feet didn't touch the ground. I noticed it was the same in... More
