Split chocolate chip pancakes and amaretto challah bread French toast with my boyfriend. Everything was great! Not amazing, but great food options, location, and prices! The staff are all really nice and friendly.

Highly recommend Thornton’s for breakfast. The service was excellent and they had large portions. Located near the Colonnade Hotel and the next time I’m staying in the hotel I’ll be back.
