  • oatmeal + bananas = best in america. seriously.
  • Delicious breakfasts
  • Hashbrowns are flavorful on the inside and crispy on the outside, I don't know the secret, but it works nicely.
  • The oatmeal is fantastic (they make it with nonfat milk and start it at 5am).
  • Great brunch place. I love the omelettes!
  • The omelettes are to die for, especially the Combination Omelette.
  • If you're trying to decide between sweet and savory, go savory. Any punk can drop sugar on French toast. These guys absolutely nail the more challenging side of breakfast and brunch.
  • Service is slow as all hell. But they make up for it in tastiness.
  • Excellent crepes , excellent breakfast in general.
  • It's all wonderful! The whole grain french toast with berries is fabulous!
  • The salmon crepe is divine! I also enjoy the crepe Bretonne is wonderful with melted brie on top!
  • the brioche french toast is to dieeeee for. sooooo gooood
  • The Crepe Bretonne is all kinds of amazing. Chicken apple sausage, scrambled eggs, onions, mushrooms, brie cheese.
  • How this place is rated one of the best breakfast spots in PA boggles the mind. Maybe it was good in 1987, but not so in 2019. Tired, dated and just plain old American breakfast. Meh.
  • Go for the blueberry pancakes they are delicious
  • The Carmel brioche French toast is really good.
  • Super fluffy scrambles and the open faced sandwiches. Wide selection of spicy sauces to customize your meal. You can get a muffin with your scramble. It was too sweet for me, but otherwise very fresh.
  • The lday at the restaurant is awesome..all breakfast options are amazing
  • Great people, good food!
  • Food was good, although I cannot remember it so not memorable. I think either the bread or the eggs were nice and fluffy, but I'm not sure so get both! :)
