I have always gotten great meals here, as well as speedy service (unless you go on Mother's Day). Located in a fairly central area of Gresham, right on the main road to Hwy 26.

Servers are very friendly, neat in appearance, and accommodating. First time back in 12 years. Food was average, the pancakes very good. The scrambled eggs overcooked. They were willing to make substitutions if you are on a specialized diet.
