After 6AM flight we went quickly to Original and had a wonderful feast. Wife had eggs and pancakes. I had very delicious corn beef hash eggs and 3 most delicious pancakes. They were extraordinarily good. Highly recommend this restaurant for any time of the day.

Took my son's after trying location on NW hwy. I loved it, and they did too. We will be coming back. The breakfast was delicious. I'm in love with the coffee, and my son's the OJ.
