We have eaten here several times while visiting our son and his family in Puyallup. The omelets we had today were generous in size and very tasty. So were the pancakes we had on the side. Our coffee cups were frequently filled and it was a good tasting brew. Our waitress was friendly and efficient. We once again had a... More

This was the first time we ate here. It WA fantastic! I had the ham steak and eggs, potatoes and wheat toast. The potatoes were perfectly buttery! The jam for my toast was so yummy! My hubby had the 2x4 and he loved his pancakes. They are a little speedy but definitely worth it.

This location is in kind of an odd, out of the way spot - but, never the less, manages to be unbelievably busy on the weekends. The staff is... More

I love this place. My favourite is the potato pancake. I love it so much. The place is always so crowded but it's worth the wait. Good place to take your out of town guest.

Been here a few times now. Really liked the pumpkin pancakes & the bacon. Did not care for the biscuit gravy at all, but loved their green sausage gravy. Good coffee, great service.

We were so excited to happen upon this location. We weren't aware that the chain originated in this area and we like to eat at these restaurants whenever we can in other cities. The closest is five hours from us. We always order the Dutch Baby and fight over it so this time we ordered two. It is definitely worth... More
