Super fun menu, kitschy atmosphere and excellent food. Word of warning: portions are huge. When they say only two pancakes, they are HUGE, THICK PLATE sized pancakes. Remember to bring cash. They don't take credit cards. If you wear your pajamas, you get a discount....More

Food is awesome. The corned beef hash is amazing! Staff is fun and purposefully sarcastic. While the service is fun and attentive, it is not fast by any means. If you know that going in its a great experience....

The deliberate sarcasm of the staff is only surpassed by their attentiveness, great quality and portions of food, and reasonable prices. A definite must visit when in the area! I recommend the stuffed French toast or made to order pancakes topped however you like....I went...More
