    The Dutch Treat is a favorite! It's a Dutch pancake filled with strawberries and bananas. Definitely worth a try!

    Be sure to split the omelet with a friend. They are made from 4 eggs... But they are ridiculously fluffy and tastey.

    Found a long black hair in my pancake and they still charge me for coffee and orange juice when I could even finish my meal?!

    Pancakes served with everything! If you want eggs get a skillet! Make sure to come here on an empty stomach because portions are massive! Outside patio is nice but lots of bees!

    You can order a half order of any of their pancakes. Instead of 6, they give you 3. Definitely more manageable on some mornings :)

    Generous portions to say the least. Pancakes are their specialty but they have a full range breakfast menu. Small and cozy with communal seating, noisy, average service.

    Banana Pancakes! Mmm... I've had Jack Johnson's song stuck in my head since eating banana pancakes this morning. The tropical syrup is really good, too!

    Even though it's chain, Feels like great hole-in-the-wall breakfast place. Very popular, but the line moves fast, so you don't have to wait very long for a seat.

    You are 100% wasting your time and money if you get anything other than 49ers, Dutch Babies or Apple Pancakes. They are the best pancakes on the planet, other than my family recipe of course...

    Don't let the line discourage you - it moves quickly, as all locals know. Actually? You probably don't have enough time - keep moving.

    Get a half order pancakes for one buck less. It's more of a regular human proprtion. Had room toget some eggs on the side too that way.

    If you get eggs they'll come with pancakes, though the side order is pretty small.
