The restaurant is divided into sections with stained glass, so it seems more intimate. In addition to a terrific array of pancakes, waffles,eggs and omelettes, they have added salads to the lunch items. This restaurant is very crowded on weekends and takes no reservations.

The best pancake house on the North Shore. Their flapjacks are fantastic. Their bacon is crispy and thick but not greasy. Pigs in a blanket are also very good. I don't eat their egg dishes but from the steady flow of eggs Benedict from the...More
