I had no idea this place would be this good. I stayed at a motel up the street from here and one of the local guests had recommended this place for breakfast. It was hands-down, the best blueberry pancakes I've ever had. The line is there for a reason and definitely worth the wait. It was like eating at grandmas house all over again (literally, this restaurant is a renovated house), except she had a ton of guests over. I'll be back next time I'm in town to try out other items from their menu.

We tried it based on internet recommendations. Long wait - but that was expected. The food was unremarkable - no better than at IHOP. Coffee was good. Never got my order of bacon - even after repeated requests. The bill? $29 for our two breakfasts. Won't be back.

Pros: Good coffee

Cons: Expensive for unremarkable food.

I have been coming here since I was little. There is always a wait, but it is sooo worth it. It is in an old house that has been converted into a restaurant, it feels like you are at your grandma's if she ran a little diner. The German Pancakes, Skillet Scramble and Apple Pancakes are my favorites. (you might as well throw in the thick cut bacon too.)

Very good breakfast. Very good. But how good does a breakfast have to be to warrant a wait like this place has? For every time I've gone here, I wind up going somewhere else half the time after I see the line.

It is sooo good! But it is a tiny room with every single person who goes to church trying to eat there. the wait is always long and you are moving your chair for people to get by the whole meal, but if you can wait, it is worth it. everything i have ever ordered was mind boggling amazing.

Get there early on the weekends, or wait until the "church" rush is over... You will not find a better pancake no matter which one you choose. The staff is friendly even when the place is crazy busy.

My friends all raved about how good this place was. I went to try it out and I didn't like it right away. I had to wait about 2 hours to get seated. 2 hours!!! I ordered the apple pancake and my friend ordered a crepe of some sort. She wasn't too pleased with it as it was pretty bland. My apple pancake came out exremely hot so I had to wait about another 20-30 minutes for it to cool down. Thanks to the 2 hour wait, I was very hungry so I bit into a still relatively hot pancake and was highly disapointed. Nothing special. Pretty big pancake but it didn't taste good at all. Maybe the burning I had in my mouth had something to do with it.

After reading the reviews and looking at the website, I had the Apple Pancake and the Dutch Baby, while my friend had the Belgian waffle with strawberries. I would say the pancakes are their specialty. The apply pancake was very delicious at the first bite, but after a while, it became too sweet for my taste. There was so much cinnamon and the pancake itself was a little soggy, probably from the apples. The Dutch Baby and the Belgian waffle were also good. We went on a Sunday morning around 11am and it was very packed. Overall, I would recommend eating at this place at least once.

My favorite pancake at this cute pancake house is the large German cake. It is quite filling and absolutely delicious! It comes with lemons and powered sugar. I add butter for a not-on-my-diet treat! The service is good too. They are closed on Mondays and very crowded on weekends. I sneak over on weekdays aboiut noon and have no wait to eat breakfast. The 49er pancakes are not-to-be-missed also. My only regret is I am not able to indulge my Diet cola habit. Instead the iced tea or hot chocolate are good alternatives. Since I wrote this in 2006, there has been changes. The pancake restraurant now serves Diet Coke's & they are now open on Mondays. It's a family owned restraurant, but a new generation has taken over. The new changes make it an even better place to eat!!

The apple pancake that is served here is one of the most awsome breakfasts you will ever have. This dish takes them about 15 minutes to prepare, but is more than worth waiting for. Most of the items that they have look good, but because the apple pancake is so good, I have not been able to break my habit and try something else.
