Great little shop right across the street from the Arlington Hotel on the main drag in Hot Springs. Wife had pancakes and me grits. Tip and all only $14. Expect a wait because they are small, cozy and BUSY but worth it.

We went for breakfast around 10:30. We had a 25 minute wait. Oh my the pancakes!! Warm syrup and real butter. So delicious. Would go again and would wait as long as needed. So good.

Friendly servers, good coffee, busy atmosphere. The eggs and bacon were on point. The Buckwheat pancakes were good. The restaurant was packed. But it was still just average. Disappointed in the lack of potatoes.More

I had an egg, bacon, pancake, coffee and a fruit side. I really enjoyed it, but I found the egg was cooked in SO MUCH BUTTER, it overwhelmed the egg flavor. Other than that, enjoyed and would visit again.

Small place so there’s usually lots of people waiting. It’s worth the wait! Giant pancakes, the freshest orange juice and great service!

We come here every time we visit Hot Springs. And we're never disappointed. Huge pancakes. Great egg dishes. Coffee is hot and fresh. For a good, hearty breakfast, this is the place to go.

Check online and hopefully they are keeping it up to date. My daughter needs to be GF but is able to eat buckwheat. Maybe with celiac disease this is not the case.
