I just searched for breakfast places near my hotel, and wanted to skip Denny's. I'm so glad I made the right choice! The black forest pancakes were amazing, and the pancakes themselves were real, not boxed! Coffee was great, bacon was great, eggs were cooked perfectly. My meal ended up being a la carte because a combo of my items... More

Went there yesterday and it did NOT disappoint! Had an egg-white omelette (they make their own egg beaters/white mixture) and it was delicious! Let's talk about the home fries... WOW. They were perfect!!! Second best home fries in Syracuse. (ask me where the best in Syracuse are if you're curious!!!) But their home fries were DELICIOUS! I've been to Rise... More

Wow! First time customers and impressed from beginning to end. Fantastic menu including a separate pancake menu. Service was outstanding and food was great. The home fries were stellar. Pancakes as big as dinner plates. Wished I lived closer as I would be here alot.

Very tasty food and nice atmosphere. A good choice if you are trying to avoid the chains. Inventive variations to traditional lunch fare.

Had breakfast here for the first time and was quite impressed. The food was fresh and tasted great. Portions were big, staff was very friendly and everything served in a timely manner. Very busy restaurant, waited maybe 5 minutes to be seated which wasn't bad considering how good the food was. Lots of choices for a diner, great home fries... More

Probably the best diner in Syracuse. Way better than Modern Malt (They just lack the Shakes). The food is excellent both in price and flavor. Their pancakes are amazing and they have a wide variety of not only pancakes but also Egg Benedicts,Scrambled Eggs, Omelettes and Sanwiches. One of the best things are their home fries, you cannot go and... More

From the moment I walked in the door to the moment I left all I got was disappointment. Took forever to be seated when there were open tables and no wait, just nobody could be bothered to actually seat us. Once somebody FINALLY walked over, they sat the other two people waiting first and gave them service immediately meanwhile my... More

Food is always hot and the coffee cup is bottom less. Service is quick and the wait staff are very pleasant. The place hides behind the valvoline oil change bldg on Thompson Road in Syracuse across from Carrier

This hidden gem is just south of the Carrier Circle, tucked in behind the car lube place. Keep an eye out for it as you go south on Thompson Road. Amazing service, amazing food, good portions and great economical prices. Its out go to place when visit Syracuse. Much better than any hotel breakfast. Try it!
