I had no trouble getting a table (~8AM on a Wednesday morning). The waitress was so sweet and helpful, made sure I got enough without ordering too much. I had blueberry pancakes, which were good to average, but my eggs were cooked exactly to order....More

The food was disappointing. What self-respecting pancake restaurant doesn't offer real maple syrup. Some of the food was greasy. It was extremely cold in the restaurant, requiring us to leave our coats on. On the plus side, the service was good.

Local favorite for buckwheat pancakes. They are the best! All their breakfasts are excellent, although there can be a wait on the weekend.

Always attentive staff, great seating options, and always fabulous breakfast food. Get here early or you might have to wait for a table. Wonderful pancakes and you have to try either the sausage patties or the ham steak! Great downtown location!
