Stopped in for breakfast. There was a line. Maybe a ten minute wait. Serving staff was very nice. The breakfast special with eggs, hash browns, bacon, toast and mini pancakes was delish. (No substitutions...only bummer). Coffee was hot. Mimosas were delish. Throughly enjoyed. Great vibe....More

We loved the savory pancakes. The one we ordered had Brie, roasted walnuts and ham. The hash browns were wonderfully seasoned. The eggs cooked perfectly. Mimosas topped off an already amazing meal! The service was superb as well. Really can’t go wrong here!!

This place is always crowded for good reason. Delicious food and great service. The pancakes are more like american crepes. My favorite was the gouda and walnut pancakes.

Service is fast, food was perfectly portioned, and the waiters are attentive without being overbearing. Love it here, food tastes amazing and there are options for every palette. If/When I return to Aruba, I'm definitely doing brunch here again

The dutch style pancakes (crepes) were such a treat, my wife and spent most mornings here. The place packs up quick, but well worth the wait.
