The crepes melt in one's mouth. Pancakes are light as air. Omelets are fluffy and delicious. The service is outstanding. If you come on a Saturday, go before 10:00. People were standing outside when we left at 10:15.

We started our Fourth of July with excellent breakfast at the original pancake house. Our favorite is the apple pancake. It did not disappoint.. It was piping hot and worth the 15 to 20 minute wait. It is so large we usually split it between...More
