Visits to the quad cities require breakfast here. You should never miss an opportunity to try one of their great breakfast options and regardless of your order try their pancakes. Even if you just have one to share with the table. Amazing!

Stopped by before leaving town. Wow!!! The food was great and the service was excellent. Ordered a skilled breakfast and it was delicious! It was enough for 3 meals. If ever I am back in town, I will definitely visit again.

Excellent food and a lot of it. Try the cinnamon roll pancakes. Be prepared to wait a little bit, but well worth it.
