The food is very solid and the service is good. This place is ridiculously EXPENSIVE. At first glance the pricing seems in line until you realize that you have to pay extra for everything. Toast = extra. Hashbowns = Extra. I just feel used and abused when I leave here. There are much less expensive options that are as good or better in atmosphere and food.

Everything is well prepared, pancakes, waffles, eggs, sausage, hot chocolate. And service is excellent as well. They are a little on the high side, but worth it. Only breakfast, and only until 2 PM.

We have been other locations in the chain. This menu is the same as others in the chain. Well executed breakfasts that are Huge when you figure in the side of pancakes. Kind of. Speedy but you won't leave hungry or disappointed.

Though this is part of a chain, the food in both Salem locations is just better than in other locations we have tried! Once you taste, you will just know that the best eggs, butter, and other ingredients were used. Servings are big enough to share, too. There is almost always a pretty long wait on Saturday and Sunday mornings, and you will quickly learn why people think it is worthwhile to wait!
You can also get breakfast for lunch here, but the restaurant closes mid-afternoon. They have found what they do well, and they just keep on doing it!
