Great for a quick sweet tooth fix any time of the day! It was delicious and also did not feel overly heavy or guilty after eating. Reasonably priced and goes great with coffee.

If your looking for something good for breakfast this is a must try - we had the Strawberry Fields pancake! The place was packed which firmed up that we would have a great meal.

Wasn't bad but I wasn't impressed. Pancakes were just ok. I think I would of actually just preferred a plain old flap jack instead of the pancake with apple and bacon.
