The buckwheat blueberry pancake was so good! Full of fresh Blueberries and topped with even more fresh Blueberries. Turkey sausage was great too! Average, efficient service. Good coffee. Looking forward to going back!

So the last time I was here my pancake was burnt. Today I was going to meet a friend for lunch and she wanted to go there. I was on my way when she texted she was sick. I decided to go anyway. I sat for over a half an hour waiting for my food. I asked where it was,... More

Nice portions, good quality. Well prepared and served with a smile. Nice menu for breakfast and lunch. Disappointed that breakfast burrito did not have the chorizo sausage option that is available at their Minneapolis location.

Went at noon on a Saturday. My husband ordered the patty melt and potatoes. I ordered the sausage benedict and hash browns. Both were good. The service was fast and attentive. They have both booths and tables. The restaurant was clean and well kept.

Had a Coke ($2.80), ice tea ($2.80), omelette special ($8.25), hash browns (($1.50). Nothing special about the meal but it was good. The atmosphere is comfortable. One large room with adequate spacing. The wait staff was courteous, pleasant and fast.

We love this place even more since they spruced up and fixed the seating. They're so popular that the booths previously had enormous cavities worn down by extensive use! Their excellent all-day breakfast options range from a variety of great Omelettes & skillets to our very most favorite pancakes in town. I love the fluffy buttermilk and my guy goes... More

This is my go-to place for meeting friends for brunch. Service is always friendly and the coffee is always hot. The French toast and build your own omelet is my usual.

We most recently came here for a late lunch and I really enjoyed my low fat veggie omelet. We arrived at 1:20 b4 the 2pm close but ordered fast and everyone ate everything. I've also come here for networking meetings and its convenient (for some) between St Paul and Mpls. I'll come here again for sure.

Reliable meeting place with good food, large menu, rapid service. Many people meet here because it is midway between Mpls and St. Paul. This restaurant has been here quite a while. It also offers some baked goods if you want to take them with you, as well as coffee drinks.

Thank Seniordad
