Stopped by twice for breakfast. Food was delicious and abundant. Mr. Alvin, our server, was very pleasant and accommodating. Would recommend this place for a good, wholesome and tasty breakfast.

Their famous astronomical pancake was of good sized. They open only half a day and closed by 2 pm. Make sure you go before they closed. Other meals are also reasonable. But the service is slow.

We have visited here several times over the years. The food is always excellent and what we ordered. Our waitress was either tired or not having a good day. She was a bit testy and not very welcoming. However, she got our order out and...More
