We continue to enjoy the pancakes and coffee here. the Swedish Pancakes and the Georgia Pecan Pancakes are delicious. The service has always been spotty and continues to be a weak point. We were seated at a booth that had not been cleaned so we asked to be moved. Then the hostess failed to give us menus. We had to... More

We've been having breakfast here about twice a month for the last 2 years. We returned from vacation and went there today. We had to beg for the table we wanted; we waited for 10 minutes for coffee and to place an order. I had to get up to find a waitress to get more coffee. We watched a couple... More

The eggs are fluffy and perfectly cooked. The fresh squeezed orange juice is delicious. The pancakes are super tasty, not to mention the homemade syrup. It is like a super good home cooked meal at grandma's house. Not to be missed. We love it!

There aren't too many breakfast places to go near where I live. Recently, we've been coming to this place for Saturday morning breakfast. Use to come to this place many years ago but stopped due to the service. But, now, things have changed; good service and food - very reasonable pricing, too. Today, ordered mexicana omelette; never seen an omelette... More

Can be a little noisy at times. Food I would label as "average". Wait staff not always the best. Ambiance is of an "old fashioned" pancake house.

Pigs in a blanket, crepes, corned beef hash, etc. they have it all and lots more. Gets packed on weekends and for special holidays like Mothers Day so expect to wait. It's link home cooking elevated to another level as you don't have to do the cooking!

I've been coming here for years. I was surprised that I did not have to wait on a holiday Monday. Service was excellent. Frequent rounds by the wait staff with coffee pots which always makes me happy. Georgia Pecan pancakes were tasty as always. My friend asked for her bacon to be cooked crispy, and it was. I always take... More

Fantastic pancakes and excellent service. They serve your typical breakfast items such as pancakes, waffles, omelets, and eggs. All offerings here are delicious but huge serving sizes. My favorite here is the oatmeal pancakes with apple syrup ( you can get a half order). These are light and fluffy and when the warm apple syrup is added beyond delicious. Another... More
