You can't go wrong with this place! This is the perfect setting for the typical "mom and pop" style of restaurant, where it really makes you feel at home at your local restaurant.

We had to wait probably 40 minutes before we were seated. However, we had passed this place a few times and always wanted to try it. We had nowhere to be so we decided to wait it out. That's really the only wait we did have. The food came out fast and we were able to order quickly. The staff... More

You can't go wrong here. This is a great diner-style breakfast place. Portions are large, service is usually quick, and the food is terrific. Been here several times while visiting the Eugene area and have always enjoyed coming to eat here.

First, the servings were HUGE. The ham and cheese omelette was a full sized meal even before eating the pancakes that come with it. It was nice to have the option of doing half sized orders for our daughter. The eggs benidict was delicious! One of the best hollandaise sauces I've had.

The is a down home diner (large space ) with a very comfortable feeling. It almost feels like you took a step back in time .... The food is great and the servers are quick and kind. Be prepared to be full when you leave , the portion and the food quality is too tough not to fill up on.... More

Located next to the Phoenix Inn along Franklin Blvd., this long-time Eugene institution is a winner. Friendly service and hearty breakfast meals that can't be beat make this place a winner. Omelets or pancakes, you can't go wrong here.

Was not disappointed. Bacon waffle was light and fluffy, lots of fresh bacon bits; corned beef and potato pancakes were wonderful.

If you have more than 2 in your party it might be a little bit of a wait, but it is definitely worth it! Best French toast ever!! Very nice and cute environment on the inside too. Great servers as well :)

It's worth getting up EXTRA EARLY on a weekend, if it means getting a table at this little gem that serves PERFECTLY prepared breakfast fare (BEST BACON EVER!) in a homey, impeccably clean, sunny, and homey restaurant. This classic venue is staffed by lovely, helpful, knowledgeable, and service-oriented staff. WHAT A PLEASURE to rediscover this again after many years!
