I have visited the Brass Pelican at least once monthly for 13 years for breakfast. Famous for their buckwheat cakes. I've tried many breakfast choices over the years and enjoyed them all. Friendly staff. Reasonable prices.

The Pelican's sourdough buckwheat cakes are THE BEST...nice and thin, slightly sour, great with syrup. All of the menu choices are very good to excellent; and the portions are large. Your fault if you go away hungry.
