Enjoyed our breakfast with Grandma today. I had potato pancakes which was a huge serving. My hubby's classic breakfast was enormous and he said very tasty. Prices so reasonable...like "old school" and server very attentive. Yum!😋

Stopped for breakfast & was surprised at the extent of menu options. Eggs were good - pancakes were great. The place doesn't look like Grandmas but the chef sure cooks like her.

The best omelette I've ever had, for whatever it's worth. Pancakes were ok, but I have to say I'm not a pancake person. I'm sure most people love them. When I came there were maybe 3-4 people there but by the time I left there...More

I come to this place every time we're in town visiting family. The pancakes really are excellent, and so far we've tried their other breakfast dishes like the spinach crepes, international crepes, omelettes, etc; and they've all been excellent. Parking is tight, and service can...More
