    Belgian Waffles are amazing here and person with me had the waffles with apples baked into them! Being a newly young single guy, I have to say that the servers are Hott!😻

    Cozy place on Milwaukee's far North side. Bring your appetite because the portions are huge. Metered parking seems to be the only option around here too, so bring change.

    The hostess was rude and acted like doing her job was a burden.

    The pancakes are legit & love the fresh squeezed orange juice! Wait times can be longer on Sat & Sun mornings. Paging system would be nice so you can go out on Downer and not wait in tight space.

    Seems obvious but next time I will order pancakes and not an omelette. Too dry. Beautiful restaurant. Service is mediocre. Servers and manager sat at front booth - sitting, eating, drinking.

    Call ahead 30 minutes ahead of time and put your name in - little to no wait when you get there!

    One of my all-time favorite breakfast spots. Lots of food and reasonably priced. I recommend the potato pancakes. Service is awesome.

    Make sure your Vegetarian Omelette doesn't come with a big cube of ham.

    The golden brown waffle is the best breakfast. So simple but so delicious. Also if you get hash browns get them extra crispy!! So good!

    I recommend the brown sugar & banana french toast or, if you have some time to wait, definitely give the Dutch baby a try. :)

    The beverage glasses are HUGE!! I had 46 pancakes and could only drink 1/3 of my orange juice because the cup was so big. 2 gallons at least. Bill Brasky couldn't finish that orange juice!!

    Apparently pancakes are now exclusively cooked in peanut oil. So forget ordering an omelette because the only option for pancakes you'll have is potato pancakes.

    Start with the Apple Pancake for your table. The omelets are fabulous (you can totally share it). They're as big as your head! Share a side of the roasted potatoes too!

    WHY ARE THE BEVERAGES HERE SOOOO SMALL AND SO UNREASONABLY PRICED. I like my pancakes but I also like a normal sized beverage along with them.

    Very spacious, and modern feel to this spot. I almost enjoy it more than the location in Madison! Banana pancakes are a plus :)

    Arguably, the best breakfast location in milwaukee. Very fast & fresh. Get the coffee - smooth as silk - and the crispy bacon.

    You really can't go wrong with anything on the menu here. Order a side of bacon (it's thick cut) and rest assured that this statement is accurate.
