    Must try the cinnamon roll pancakes. These things are outstanding. Be careful they are the size of the plate.

    Try the blueberry pancakes. Get the short stack, though! They are quite large.

    If you REALLY want the goodness that is real food, this location is always less crowded than the store in Grand Rapids proper.

    Amazing and delicious. The home fries were kind of odd, almost full chunks potatoes but the main items were to de for.

    The Bacconado Omelet was amply supplied with chunks of avocado and bacon. It was nummy. I added mushrooms too for a total of (tax not included) $9.50. Comes with toast.

    One of the best places in town for breakfast. Get there at 8 on Sunday because it fills up quickly.

    Don't go as a party of 5 or more. They will push you to the back burner and seat everyone else before you. And if you are splitting the ticket simple mathematics is beyond them. Horrible experience.
