    It's worth waiting if there's a line. They move pretty fast, even on Sunday morning.

    This is a great icon of american life. Hard to go wrong - great breakfast and wonderful ice cream & frozen yogurt. No pretense here, and the service is enthusiastic and genuine...a real family feel

    The omelette seemed rushed, and the short-stack was very dense. Just not what we had anticipated.

    Be aggressive. If you don't push and shove, the legions of the self-entitled will trample you while you beg to have your order taken. Very, um, let's say, provincial.

    If you're lactose intolerant you can get some delicious non dairy ice cream. You can choose from lots of flavors. I reccomend the coffee flavor.
