I wish I could get more excited because I really want these type of places to flourish. The cinnamon roll is basted in icing, the pancakes were nice and fluffy and the eggs cooked according to my request. Just nothing to really distinguish it from...More

Excellent breakfast! Not greasy at all. Service was very friendly and professional at the same time. Famous for their cinnamon rolls, great and not sticky sickening sweet either! Totally enjoyable experience. Highly recommend. Popular local spot.

Way over priced with lack luster service. Service is like they are doing you a favor. Breakfast anywhere is usually good. Why pay such high prices? No atmosphere not great & too expensive. Try Denny's a better deal all the way around.

Our friends took us here for brunch. We opted to substitute Paul's "famous cinnamon rolls" for toast. (There may have been an uncharge... I don't remember.) WOW! The cinnamon roll was the VERY BEST I have EVER eaten (and I've eaten quite a few over...More
