We loved it so much we are here both mornings we were in town. The Dutch Baby is a must! If I had a last meal it would be that Dutch Baby with a side of their thick, perfectly crisp bacon with a cup of their Joe! Soooooo good!

I ate breakfast here on a Sunday morning, and it was bustling and friendly. Despite the time of day, the service was good, and the food came out quickly. The portion sizes were great, and they have good egg+bacon+pancake combos if you want pancakes but don't want to discount protein.

We have been here several time before and after the remodel. Love this place. The proportions are perfect. Old school restaurant with high quality. We woke up yesterday at 6am and drove 30 minutes for their pumpkin pancakes. The server was extremely friendly (sorry, didn't know your name). The pancakes were excellent, served with a homemade whipped cream (on the... More

The Baked Dutch Apple Pancake is 4 pound of deliciousness!!! It is so good, and filling, and worth the wait to allow it to bake. Highly recommend it.

It is after all a pancake house. I liked the food I liked the service I liked it all but the coffee. Granted we were there in the early afternoon,a late night before, we decided to have a bit of breakfast. I did love the Dutch baby, and the bacon was good. But again I say...all but the coffee

Huge omelettes (4 eggs) filled up with anything you want. Good pancakes and great waffles. This place gives breakfasts a new dimension. It is a locals favorite as it was packed the day we arrived and on a later normal day. The ambient is nice and people are friendly. Good place, good good. Enjoy!
