We wanted pancakes and a big breakfast for a day of exploring. They had what we wanted. Great pancakes and eggs and sausages. Big portions. Fun decor, great service. We would stop here again. I love breakfast and we hit a home run here.

Pancakes are to die for with many other options for breakfast and lunch. We've also enjoyed huevos rancheros and fantastic daily soups. Very laid back with prompt and friendly service.
