  • Best French toast on the planet
  • Breaskfast is cheap and Good.
  • "We don't have vegetables here, just tomato and onion."
  • Filling, cheap breakfast. They have advertising for ceiling tiles!
  • A gem hidden in plain sight. Great place to get a hearty breakfast thats worth the price. Bring cash; they do not accept cards.
  • Pancakes and coffee are delightful.
  • The French toast is like nothing I've had before. Two slices of bread dipped in a pancake batter! Tastes great.
  • Don't forget cash
  • It was very good.
  • Best breakfast place in Champaign-Urbana!
  • Horrible service. Wouldn't allow to sub out a side for a side unless it a pancake. Beware if you do not like something and give it back. They will make you buy it regardless if you eat it or not.
  • THE BEST lil grease pit in town!!! Cash only but cheap.... Ask for ur pancakes crispy ;)
  • EVERYTHING is awesome here: mindblowingly tasty French toast, biscuits with gravy that definitely has bacon grease in it, fluffy pancakes, and the best $5 breakfast plate to be found anywhere.
  • Cash only.
  • Coffee is awful
  • Best French toast in town. Comfort food
  • Cash only. Definitely worth it on Thu + Fri nights when they transform into a middle eastern restaurant yum!
  • French Toast & chocolate milk! #winning
  • Cash only and bring change for parking meters. French toast is a must, scrambled eggs are fresh, bacon was perfect and hashbrowns (american fries) were buttery goodness. Good coffee, real sugar only.
