Got there around 8:45am and the wait was only about 20 minutes. They had free coffee next door until they called your name. A well oiled machine getting people in and out. You must try the banana pancakes! Tasted like banana bread in pancake form....More

Really enjoyed our pancakes. We had an order of bacon and there was so much it was cooked just right.

We did not stay around to eat as the staff was so very rude. We got the impression that they did not like tourist. Which is interesting considering that’s how they make their money as I doubt the locals keep this business afloat. .More

We loved this place while visiting Hot Springs. The banana pancakes were delicious! And the sausage was the best I've had at a breakfast place. Next time we are in Hot Springs we can't wait to stop here again. Don't miss this place.

This place is a must go! Order the Orange juice! Pancakes are huge! Fresh eggs and homemade sausage! Puts Denny’s and IHOP to shame every time!

I went here for breakfast and got much more! The service was fantastic and the food was some of the best breakfast food I've had in ages. I enjoyed their magnificent homemade apple butter and I recommend trying the omelettes or the banana pancakes.

This was my second time here and it was just as enjoyable as my first visit. We had to wait 20-30 minutes but it was worth it. The banana pancakes are my favorite. The staff is friendly and the environment is cozy and fun.

Check online and hopefully they are keeping it up to date. My daughter needs to be GF but is able to eat buckwheat. Maybe with celiac disease this is not the case.
