What a treat! We had to wait about 30 minutes for a table and I am so glad that we did! We were a table of six, so six different plates for me to pick off of! I tried it all, loved it all! Portions are huge! Everything fresh and delicious. Great service, wish we lived in town, we'd be... More

If you want an amazing great breakfast, then this is the place to go! The food options are great even if you have a gluten intolerance! I loved their fresh strawberry crepes with eggs and bacon too! The only downside to this place is it can be a long wait for a table. I highly recommend you get the NoWait... More

have been eating breakfast in this restaurant nearly every morning for over ten years; ownership has changed, and the prices of virtually everything have increased. the food is still good; most of the veteran servers are great; but the newbies, and there are several, not so much...prices are now hotel restaurant level; so be careful when ordering

I have been here twice now for breakfast with my adult daughter. Expect a 20-30 min wait, but oh my the food is amazing. Large portions that don't skimp on quality. Delicious 4 egg omletes with unique blends. Pancakes and crepes are one of the best in the metro. Even the coffee has a nice strength vs. the watered down... More

Original has a great app that allows you to make a reservation so you aren't waiting in line. Of course the service is always great there, and the coffee is hot. Again I had my favorite Swedish pancakes with lingonberries and a side of bacon. And as always, the meal was delicious.

The breakfast menu is varied and wonderful. They use to serve excellent coffee but that has been replaced with weak tasting brew. A breakfast place needs good coffee. Luckily there is a Caribou nearby and I suggest bringing your own coffee

The long wait is worth it if you're craving a really good gf waffle or pancake. Use no wait app to put in your name ahead of your arrival. Try to eat breakfast here whenever we are in town.
