The banana pancakes are awesome. Orange juice taste just like a orange not like what you buy in the store.

Best buckwheat pancake I've ever ate! They offer a lot of breakfast options so you will definitely not go away hungry. Fast, friendly service.

Pancakes were first rate, fresh huge blueberries. Lots of bandanas in the banana pancakes. Homemade sausage was very tasty and the fresh orange juice was spot on. Serving staff was very efficient.
