The 15 min wait was well worth it. The ligonberry butter pancakes were great. Service was good despite being packed on a busy Sunday morning.

Nothing to complain about, staff are nice and helpful, wait for food is short and, most importantly, the food is very good. I've had both the pancakes and the omelette, both very tasty and in large portions at a reasonable price. Would eat breakfast again. 5/7.

One of the best breakfast places we've been! Friendly staff, cosy restaurant, prompt service and awesome food. Classic American fare, with pancakes, omelettes and sandwiches.

Our recent trip to San Francisco, we drove past this pancake house a few times, saw the long queue outside the restaurant. We decided to try their pancakes and waffles on our last day, the restaurant was full of customers at 4pm. Fresh orange juice and delicious pecan waffles. We will definitely go back next time.
