Very good place for breakfast. The place is always busy on the weekends. In spite of the waiting list, the place is large and the wait time is very acceptable. Good food at reasonable pricing.

The 15 min wait was well worth it. The ligonberry butter pancakes were great. Service was good despite being packed on a busy Sunday morning.

Nothing to complain about, staff are nice and helpful, wait for food is short and, most importantly, the food is very good. I've had both the pancakes and the omelette, both very tasty and in large portions at a reasonable price. Would eat breakfast again. 5/7.

One of the best breakfast places we've been! Friendly staff, cosy restaurant, prompt service and awesome food. Classic American fare, with pancakes, omelettes and sandwiches.

Considered as one of the best Pancake houses in the country, we tried this restaurant on our way to San Francisco. And it did not disappoint. The food was great, and service was very nice. The place is huge with a gift shop near the entrance and a very spacious dining area. We had late lunch and yet there are... More

There is almost always a line but it is well,well worth the wait.The line does move reasonably fast but not so fast that you are rushed out after you get seated.I have been there 30-40 times in my life and i have never ever had a bad or just ok meal.It is just not possible to beat the place for...

Our recent trip to San Francisco, we drove past this pancake house a few times, saw the long queue outside the restaurant. We decided to try their pancakes and waffles on our last day, the restaurant was full of customers at 4pm. Fresh orange juice and delicious pecan waffles. We will definitely go back next time.

My husband and I enjoyed breakfast this morning here. I had the apple crepes, 🍎 My husband had the corned beef hash, two basted eggs, hash browns. All delicious. Nice friendly service. Pleasant atmosphere. Decent prices.
