The food was ok. They were pretty busy so while we were seated immediately it took awhile to get our food. I had the French toast but the flavor was off. You could tell it was cooked with other food.

Sunday breakfast with the family. 13 adults and 4 children. Got there at 8:30. Did not have to wait long to be seated. Food was great. I suggest get there early. By the time we left there, there was a wait.

My wife and I visited Aunt Emma's Pancakes in Chula Vista the other day and had an OK meal. We had not been to Aunt Emmas for a a few years and the taste and presentation of our meals were not the same. Aunt Emma's still has a very large portion size on their meals, and the prices are still... More

The food is quite good, service is personal and welcoming, the only minor difficulty is parking in the area.
