    The French toast is like nothing I've had before. Two slices of bread dipped in a pancake batter! Tastes great.

    Horrible service. Wouldn't allow to sub out a side for a side unless it a pancake. Beware if you do not like something and give it back. They will make you buy it regardless if you eat it or not.

    EVERYTHING is awesome here: mindblowingly tasty French toast, biscuits with gravy that definitely has bacon grease in it, fluffy pancakes, and the best $5 breakfast plate to be found anywhere.

    Cash only. Definitely worth it on Thu + Fri nights when they transform into a middle eastern restaurant — yum!

    Cash only and bring change for parking meters. French toast is a must, scrambled eggs are fresh, bacon was perfect and hashbrowns (american fries) were buttery goodness. Good coffee, real sugar only.
