    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!

    Lots of breakfast choices, large portions. But not impressive at all.

    The wait is relatively long on the weekend, but it is totally worth it! Pancakes are good. Try the chicken sausage skillet.

    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.

    The apple pancake is amazing. But beware it's huge, so might be worth sharing.

    Good breakfast but you'll definitely have to wait if you go for brunch. Also the salsa is homemade and really good

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

    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.

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

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