    They have the best pancakes I've ever tasted...who cares about the other stuff...everything is good but you MUST order something with pancakes. You won't be dissappointed.

    Order a Dutch Baby! Though not usually a pancake person, these are very special. My fav is the "Treat" version with strawberries & bananas. Enjoy with a side of bacon & their fresh pressed OJ. Heaven.

    The best bacon you'll ever have. Go to pancakes: potato, apple, 49'ers, dutch baby. Best waitress: Brooke! Also, get the Chicken Andoille hash as a side. No visit here is complete without coffee.

    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.

    "Over the river and through the woods, to Grandmother's house we go..." for apple pancakes & other scrumptious comfort food. I hope this place never modernizes its front-of-house. Worth wait in-line.

    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...
