My wife and I stopped by this hidden gem for breakfast yesterday to start our day of celebration for our 4 year wedding anniversary. The prices were unbelievably reasonable, the food was delicious, (get the pancakes and a side of bacon, you won't regret it) and the service was fast/friendly!! The pancakes are the size of your plate and the... More

I had eggs, home fries, sausage, and coffee. Food was good, great prices, service was average. Parking is a problem.

Friendly cozy neighborhood feel, super nice staff, great pancakes, honest eggs and at amazing prices - I left a big tip in case the left something off the bill. Highly... More

What determines a good restaurant? Other than taste of the food, another most important element is the atmosphere and service, and this place has definitely achieved that. Tucked away along one of the small streets in the German Village, this place is small but you can feel the cosy-ness, energy and vibrancy of a restaurant meant for the people. The... More

Our group was so pleased with the variety and quality of breakfast meals offered we went there 3 times in our week long stay in Columbus. We were 4 or 5 each time, and were sent straight to the large back booth. We had everything from oatmeal to sausage, with eggs cooked in a variety of ways. Nothing was left... More

The place is small but staff is attentive and efficient. You get in and get out. Great cup of coffee to start. We had basic eggs bacon sausage. Bacon was good, crunchy and tasted like bacon. Great portions for the price.
