The portion sizes were decent & taste was quite good (authentic homemade sausages). I prefer Barb & Ernies for brunch. There's usually a waiting line as the place is a bit cozy (nice ambiance). Recommended!

So much food! Lots of the time you feel as though you over pay in the morning for eggs and hash browns but everything here is reasonably priced. Great quality and friendly staff will come back often!

Thank you John. I am glad you were able to try the buffet too.

Great value for HUGE HUGE portions. Not a Michelin star restaurant. Quantity over quality but then it is hard to mess up a Schnitzel, an omelette or a Bratwurst.
