This is located on the main street downtown and is often extremely busy. At times, there are waiting lines. Food is good and plentiful. Most people can not finish the standard portion sizes but take home boxes are available. Prices are a bit high but no doubt because of the larger portion size. The main thing I didn't like about the place is it is fairly small with just wooden tables and chairs set too close together. I felt their omelets were their best dish.

Good place for huge menu and decent food. The buckwheat pancakes were very nice. The egg dishes look substantial. Good coffee. Good service with a smile. Very crowded. Good prices.

The menu is large and offers many options outside just pancakes and eggs - though, those were great too! The French crepes were delicious! Everyone at the table wanted a taste! Both kids and adults found something to please from this large menu and all were happy with their selections. Service is fast too! Walk in, sit down, and you'll be eating before you know it. Definitely better than some of the bigger chain breakfast places. I highly recommend you check it out!

Best pancakes in, fast service, clean and friendly. A very good spot for breakfast! The coffee hit the spot, the young lady who waited on us was friendly and nice, kept the cups full and the table cleared.

Highly recommended.

You have to go here once in Birmingham. There is very little to do in my town, so you gotta take advantage of whats here. Come eat bfast until like 2 pm- its worth it. The servers are awesome and the coffee is hot. But the apple baby and pecan pancakes and the bigger than a dog omelletes are sweetness! I eat here everytime I go anywhere near downtown. Warning- mega calories, but who cares!
