When I travel I ask locals where the locals eat, and try to eat not where the tourists go. This is a place I'd tell a stranger in town to visit. Food is reasonably priced and delicious! Huge portions. My husband's loaded omelette with hash browns and toast was so big, we brought enough of it home for two more... More

After a bike ride, we stopped in for a bite. Surprised to find a jewel. Our good was so fresh and perfectly prepared. Our waitress was great. I had blt wrap with guacamole and salad. My husband had a pork tenderloin sandwich with fries. Homemade everything and very good! Sure see why it was bustling with business. Recommend highly.

Wonderful breakfast and awesome prices. All the food actually tastes like fresh, homemade food. They have the best cinnamon roll I've ever had, and thats from someone who usually can't stand more than a bite or two.

I would describe this place as having a rustic environment. The staff is friendly and the food was good. If you want fine dining and pretentious, catering to your needs then you are in the wrong place. If you are looking for comfort food and down to earth people then this is a great place for a casual get together... More

My wife and I order the skillets. I had the country fried steak skillet and a half order of the Cinnamon Roll Pancakes. I cant remember what she had but everything was delicious. My skillet had potatoes, country fried steak and gravy, onions and cheese topped with a Fried egg, (my egg of choice). The gravy made it savory and... More

Get the chicken fried steak! It comes with sausage gravy on top, then bacon sprinkles on top of that! You also get a mound of hash browns, 2 eggs however you'd like them, and your choice of pancakes or toast. (I got oancakes, and they were delicious, too!) I can not recommend this place enough!

Sunday morning the pack is packed but the service was fast and friendly. All the food was so good. The cinnamon pancakes were worth the upgrade. The hash browns were crunchy on the outside and super hot. Another good pick. Highly recommend QC coffee and pancake house.

The food is excellent! The service is very good and the prices are very fair. It can get a little crowded but it's definitely worth the wait! Getting there before 7:30AM on a Saturday morning is a must if you don't want to wait for a seat.
