    I am not a big breakfast person but this place can definitely change my opinion - even though I think it just spoiled me! Very good food and service with an old-time feel!

    Go sit outside in the sun and enjoy the pretty green garden with its little fountain and the cute houses around. I'd go for the famous oatmeal pancakes with cinnamon apples - the best I've ever had!!

    The "fresh squeezed orange juice" is NOT fresh squeezed. It's Odwalla.

    Their Swedish Oatmeal Pancakes are the perfect combination of hearty texture and delicious taste. Toss on some fresh fruit (I'm a fan of bananas), and I am in heaven.

    Be prepared to wait quite a while after seating. There are no lines to sit, but apparently they accept more than they can handle.
