    This place is often packed for brunch and for good reason. The pumpkin pancakes are all they're cracked up to be, and outdoor seating makes it great for people watching.

    What really attracts most of Orlin's customers is not the appearance of the place, but the quality of the food and the surprisingly reasonable prices. Read more

    The crowd looks insane but tables move fast, don't let it scare you away. Steak and eggs and pancakes are the way to go. And the standard 4 brunch drinks - OJ, bloody, water, coffee.

    While it's definitely a go-to brunch spot, the food's always delicious and service is always fast, note that they (surprisingly) don't offer free refills on coffee and don't take American Express.
