I took the kids for a family brunch. It was during the week so not so busy. The service was hurried and the food was not amazing, I just fine.

Yummy gluten free options! Love this place! This restaurant has a gluten free menu and dedicated equipment according to the menu. A separate GF menu makes it so much easier to sort out GF from the regular stuff. I had buttermilk pancakes, bacon, and hash...More

I’ve gone here many times, food very good, service inconsistent. Had the blueberry pancakes which were on special, barely any blueberries in them. I’ve had them when they’re not the special and there are tons of blueberries, disappointing.

We highly recommend the Danish Garden and Healthy Medley. Very tasty dishes cooked to order. Perfect every time. The Kona coffee is a Walker Bros. hallmark.

The meals are great, service is quick. The omelettes are very fluffy, the buttermilk pancakes are great, the french toast is terrific and the apple pancake is wonderful. We go here often and it is by far our favorite breakfast place.

Their potato pancakes are the BEST we've ever had. They are delicate, thin, and absolutely delicious.
