Portions are huge, better to order one and share with your partner. Overall, it was alue for money but ok taste-wise. Nothing to rave about

Loved the place and the server was very sweet too. Awesome pancakes and Onion Rings. Cosy place. Was a bit crowded but it was a Saturday and jersey city got its first snowfall. So can’t complain.

We went here for a late afternoon Sunday breakfast/lunch. Big place- very full. Told 10 minutes wait and it was 10 minutes. Pancakes were excellent, coffee was delicious, eggs tasty, and bacon and sausage were great. Service was very good. Recommend this place!

Oops – sorry I didn't see this question for so long. It appears I am not getting notifications from trip and Iser. Unfortunately I don't remember how many types of pancakes they have but I'm sure it was a lot!
