Our wonderful servers brought us delicious crepes, pancakes, scrambles, French toast, eggs Benedict and a salad. Our coffee came with REAL cream and frequent refills. We had great service with lots of smiles! Reservations are a must during the weekend.

Always crowded but that's a good thing. Worth the wait. Have had many breakfasts & lunches here, and never, never been failed. Portions are substantial, but it's not the quantity, it's the quality of the fixin's. Fresh fruits & veggies used in scrambles (OMG) &...More
