“yummmm good american style diner food without a plane ride to the USA”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

had a super brunch visit last sunday, I had texas toast with bacon sausage and egg, the bacon is more canadian style and thick and tasty, the eggs were served over easy as I was asked how I like my eggs (such a rarity in the UK) and warm syrup for the toast yumm yumm.
Husband had BBQ ribs only complaint was if he had been in for dinner he would order a double portion but just right for brunch!
good selection of ice teas
will be back again soon

“delicious, unique and extremely good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

Went here unsure what to expect but we were really pleased and will definitely be back. The food was lush, very big portions especially for children, they don't rip you off, the premises and staff were clean!! And the staff really friendly from the moment we approached. Dinner for our family of four cost £26.50 including a side. There is no competition for this place in Milton Keynes. Highly recommend the cheesy chili nachos and the milkshakes. They haven't got five stars because the sausage my daughter had was utterly cheap. But then an organic farmer s market sausage would have been totally wrong, and anyway, when the food is cheap, you won't get expensive. But it was really yummy!

“Pancake Heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

I eat here often with family, friends and workmates. Basically anyone who I can convince to come with me. I could quite easy live on the blueberry pancakes. M & J are a delight, rightly proud of their cracking little restaurant. They are always cheerful, welcoming and very friendly. Think I'll pop along again during the week, I fancy some pancakes!

“Excellent value and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

From the moment we arrived and Sarah told us there would be a 20 minute wait ( never a problem if told and accurate)
Interacted with others who were clearly local and regular another good sign.
Food cooked fresh in front of us, quality and quantity excellent.
Sarah a delight.
When the bill arrived we checked it twice as we were concerned something had been missed off.
Would 100% recommend

“Excellent breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

Stopped in for breakfast whilst waiting for nearby Ikea to open. Bit put off by a homeless guy sleeping under bridge nearby but the restaurant was fantastic. Good friendly service, great coffee with free refills.
Wonderful pancakes with bacon and maple syrup but a stack of three defeated both of us.
Be warned!!! Huge platefuls.
Really cheery waitress, great American atmosphere. Loved it!
