Went here with family just for a nice brunch. They had a great ambience, very cozy. Definitely tight but nothing too uncomfortable. The staff was very friendly. Service was good, room for improvement but we were not in a rush or anything. Prices are typical of what you would expect. Portions are a good size. The food is appetizing and tasty. Can't really go wrong by coming here! Will definitely return.

My 92 year old father and I had breakfast here. I ordered the Rise Burger Skillet, layered French fries, ground beef, tomatoes, and onions with lettuce tossed in mayonnaise with mozzarella cheese (my choice) topped with two eggs over hard (my choice). Basically, a horizontal cheeseburger and fries in a pan minus the bun. Two pancakes on the side. My dad got Big Kahuna, two eggs (scrambled), two pancakes, sausage & bacon, also with pancake side dish. My Burger Skillet was delicious and filling, fun to eat. And the pancakes were large and fluffy but with body, also yummy. Coffee pots on the table provided unlimited refills. Minor issues that didn't substantially affect the experience: no ice water offered, two people pushing hot sauce (Instead of "We have ketchup and hot sauce, if you'd like", we were asked "Do you want hot sauce?" and got pouty faces when we took a pass both times, like we were expected to use hot sauce on their dishes.) The place was busy but we took our time and chatted over coffee after we'd finished our meals. I'll be back for sure.

We went there for brunch, were pretty surprised by the decor and taken care of right away. The mexican skillet and crepes were awesome and plentiful. Great food accompanied by great service. We will be back

Lots of egg, pancake, French toast and waffle options on this extensive menu. The pancakes were light and fluffy. The eggs delicious. The peanut butter stuffed French toast is a must!!!! Our family devoured this family shared treat!!! We will definitely return when we visit the area again!

Food and service are way above the norm. We've never had a bad meal here. Just be ready to wait during "rush hour" for weekend breakfast.
Food is worth the wait though!
