    Great food. Everything I have had is delicious. There is always a queue on the weekends. Get here early (9-9:30 AM) on Saturday or Sunday if you don't want to wait.

    The nacho scrambler is one of my favorites here. I really like the pancakes, and I'm a tough pancake critic. Well worth it!

    Taffy apple bread pudding special is excellent. If they don't have it, the berry berry crepes are also delicious!

    Great service. Red velvet french toast is more like a roll but is fantastic. Omelets are huge portions and also very good. They offer gluten free pancakes which aren't bad.

    Food seemed pre-made/frozen. Eggs tasted like they made a huge batch ahead and then just served them. I asked about the size of the soup she said "it's the size if a cup and a bowl had a baby". Weird.
