Our family was in town for a wedding. I asked around for a good local place to eat breakfast. We went over to the pancake house and asked for a table for 20. The place was packed but the got us in after a 30 min. wait. It was worth the wait. We had eggs, omelettes, awesome pancakes of all... More

If you want an amazing great breakfast, then this is the place to go! The food options are great even if you have a gluten intolerance! I loved their fresh strawberry crepes with eggs and bacon too! The only downside to this place is it can be a long wait for a table. I highly recommend you get the NoWait... More

have been eating breakfast in this restaurant nearly every morning for over ten years; ownership has changed, and the prices of virtually everything have increased. the food is still good; most of the veteran servers are great; but the newbies, and there are several, not so much...prices are now hotel restaurant level; so be careful when ordering

I have been here twice now for breakfast with my adult daughter. Expect a 20-30 min wait, but oh my the food is amazing. Large portions that don't skimp on quality. Delicious 4 egg omletes with unique blends. Pancakes and crepes are one of the best in the metro. Even the coffee has a nice strength vs. the watered down... More

Original has a great app that allows you to make a reservation so you aren't waiting in line. Of course the service is always great there, and the coffee is hot. Again I had my favorite Swedish pancakes with lingonberries and a side of bacon. And as always, the meal was delicious.

The breakfast menu is varied and wonderful. They use to serve excellent coffee but that has been replaced with weak tasting brew. A breakfast place needs good coffee. Luckily there is a Caribou nearby and I suggest bringing your own coffee

The long wait is worth it if you're craving a really good gf waffle or pancake. Use no wait app to put in your name ahead of your arrival. Try to eat breakfast here whenever we are in town.

Don't read a bad review for one minute on this page. This place is A-Mazing. I am a huge breakfast lover. This is my number 1 breakfast place to go to. Yes, it is always busy, but then you know it's great! The wait is worth it. They have gluten free French toast, pancakes and waffles. Staff is always friendly... More
