The service was very good. The breakfast was average to good. We tried Sourdough pancakes and personally didn't care for them, but some people really like them a lot, it's a personal taste, but if you've never had them, here's a chance to try at...More

We wanted to try Sourdough pancakes once, what a disappointment. We don't think they were done to begin with and the waitress said a little buttermilk pancake mix was added. Bad. Also ordered a couple of over easy eggs to go along with it. One...More
