This place has the best pancakes I’ve ever eaten. I usually get chocolate chip, although the buttermilk and blueberry pancakes are also quite special. The waffles are also awesome. The only drawback Is the front door - when it opens, a cold draft permeates the...More

My wife and I have come here for brunch a couple of times recently. Their chocolate chip pancakes are very good (much better than IHOP), and both it and the corned beef hash I had recently are good values. (Bypass the hash brown potatoes and...More
