Their signature french toast looks fabulous. I could not finish all my food, there was so much. No wait during the week. Prompt refills on coffee and soda, without asking. And there was a barbershop quartet there as well, just by chance. Highly recommend.

Nice looking restaurant, good breakfast selection. Really appreciated their attention to getting non GMO products (ugh), gluten free items and I think the eggs are from free range chickens. They also had a very tasty hot sauce without any junk ingredients that came from a local producer.

I had cheese and bacon omelette along with a bowl of cheesy grits. Delicious. My coffee never went dry... great service!

I have eaten here for many years. The food is always good and so is the service. Kind of busy on the weekends. It can be a wait to get in.Never have liked having to wait to be seated. And it can be a wait for your food.

Several groups that we belong to go to Lumes. They have a varied menu of American food and will accommodate diet problems. They are excellent in accommodating large groups and gladly re-arrange tables. The prices are good.

Similar to a more local iHop. Kind of nice, old outdated interior, very clean. We came at an off time, so it was pretty empty. I had the pancakes, they were nothing special.

Too good to miss this restaurant when visiting the area. Their Benedict are the best anywhere. I had the California Benedict, it was delicious.

Love the skillets and the corned beef hash are my favorites. Can be very busy on weekend mornings, but if a line forms it seems to move very quickly. Don't think we've ever waited more than 20 minutes for a table.

The good - service, menu is huge, portions can feed two. The average - the place is borderline on cleanliness. Older, longer in the tooth. Food was definitely nothing to write home about. Eggs Benedict heavy. Crepes were pretty good (supreme with Nutella, bananas & strawberries). Too many GREAT places down the road in Geneva.
