Excellent Food. Great place for breakfast. It is very busy place. Coffee service is prompt and they will keep hot coffee in your mug. Food service is excellent and prompt. The menu has many choices. I eat there very often always love the experience.
Bad French Toast.
I do not recommend French toast here. I wasn't too hungry so I ordered "2 French" toast since I thought 2 slices would be enough. It came in 2 "half pieces" of a thin slice of bread. It tasted plain and definitely too expensive. I make 'em better at home. My friend had the mushroom omelette & that was pretty bad too. The 3 buttermilk pancakes included was decent but nothing to rave about.
The waitstaff had extremely dirty aprons and old stains on their shirts. Not a very pleasing sight.
I didn't try their signature oven baked apple pancakes but from my experience, I'm never going back. We recently tried a place in Los Gatos... MUCH BETTER!!
GREAT food. LOUSY service. We once sat for over 30 minutes waiting just toplace out order! We don't go much anymore because the wait is too long!
