    The pretzel pancakes are delicious! Very decadent so I only ordered one pancake instead of the stack of 3.

    Mmm foodreams n' foodgasm. The Bongo Room makes some of the yummiest omelets in the city. They are served with a generous portion of crispy house potatoes. Fun environment, and incredible food.

    My fav dish to order is the chorizo and avocado omelette. The red velvet pancakes are also a great choice.

    White chocolate pretzel pancakes are a site to behold! Also stay away from the tomatillo chicken scramble, it's very bland with barely any egg.

    The specials are always pretty good

    Great breakfast place with tasty pancakes. Come at least 15 minutes before opening for a Saturday brunch, otherwise you'll have to wait for a table.

  • Susan W.

    Stuffed! The portions are gigantic!! Everyone liked their meal: Raspberry lemon pancakes (like a dessert), breakfast croissant & chicken salad all good. Large fruit tray & breakfast potatoes are tasty

    Susan Wellford · August 8, 2014
  • Rania

    Tried the healthiest breakfast option (scrambled egg white with chicken, avocado and spinach). Sounded good, but tasted bland

    Rania · August 7, 2014

    And the red velvet pancakes were awesome as well.

    Terra Kerr · August 2, 2014

    Chocolate french toast is fine. Red velvet pancake is so delicious but too much for one person. Great place for breakfast!!

  • Andy W.

    We got a share stack of pancakes rather than full stack. Keylime Cheesecake and Red Velvet were amazing. Coffees can also be taken to go if you ask. Service was spectacular.

    Andy Wall · September 21, 2013

    Cassie Curry · July 31, 2013
  • Alison S.

    Although they don't advertise it, you can order a single decadent pancake. Talk about the perfect breakfast appetizer!

    Alison Stoner · July 29, 2013

    Greek burrito and lemon blueberry hot cakes. Yum!

    Tiffany Hester · July 27, 2013
  • Honnie L.

    Key lime cheesecake pancakes are yum!

    Honnie Leinartas · July 21, 2013
  • Jesse

    Try the chocolate french toast and Lobster Eggs Benedict together. Both are amazing. They'll be happy to split a dish if you're not capable of a colossal caloric challenge.

    Jesse · July 13, 2013
  • Christie G.

    The white choc. pretzel pancakes are insane. Get a plate to share with the table!

    Christie Griffin · June 4, 2013

    They're changing their menu up in the next few days, just a heads up! Get your favorites while you still can!

    Be prepared for about a 30 - 45 minute wait during the Sunday brunch rush (9:30 AM - 11:00 AM)
