  • Good, reliable staples. Pancakes of course, but also the Ernie muffin & oatmeal. Coffee not a highlight.
  • Amazing breakfast joint!
  • Dutch Hash with extra cheese sauce is delicious
  • Its a pancake house from heaven
  • Service is usually disengaged. Food is good, not great, not bad. Not diverse only 1 none white of 32 people. 18 are over 50 years of age. But a lot of peiple for a Monday 10:30
  • Very good breakfast.
  • The pancakes really are amazing. I love their omelettes. Big, but nice and edgy with the right amount of stuffings. Go ahead, top 'em with sausage gravy.
  • Pretty much everything is great here! The waffles, omelettes, pancakes, and seasonal specials (like when pumpkin spice things start getting used)!!!!!
  • Classic breakfast place. Loved the service and the vibe. Affordable and quality food.
  • Get the sweet potato fries and crispy bacon side orders, they do such a great job the calories are worth it.
  • French toast is great. Go for the three slices, they're not very big.
  • Ignore Thomas & his tip. This place *IS* that breakfast place you see in the movies. The cooks are running all over making dang good food, the waitresses are super busy and in the end great breakfast.
  • Share the pancakes. They are way too filling to eat by yourself.
  • Service was friendly and quick. Pancakes are fantastic (we had the banana nut). Omelette needed seasoning but adding a little salt did the trick. I agree with the other reviewer comments re: coffee.
  • Omelets are delicious!
  • Just about done with this place - 2nd trip in a row with food all over booth or the floor underneath it - I'm talking like PILES of greasy hashbrowns! WTF??
  • Try the biscuits and gravy the are so good
  • The place has a very family feel to it with a lot of regulars. The pancakes are awesome (try the banana walnut one), but yeah it's too bad you can't bring your own coffee...
  • Pancakes are great, I love the buckwheat ones. Farmers hash and the shotgun omelet are also great.
