My dad brought me to this place in the 1960s. I brought my kids here and look forward to bringing my grandchildren. Excellent food, excellent service. Highly recommended

This place is buzzing and it is not surprising - the food is good, the service is good and there is a wide enough range to please everyone.

What you should know: Cash only, expect a wait...because this is a genuinely great place to eat. The food is hot and fresh and the portions are huge. Leftovers are to be expected and I usually get two more breakfasts from my original meal. The...More

This is not your typical Village Inn or IHOP, this is a for real pancake house. Everything is made in house and it’s so fresh. A huge variety of pancakes as well as other breakfast entrées. The pancakes are so light and fluffy and delicious,...More
