Breakfast Spot

“This is an absolute staple to the area. Even though it bares a generic name that you've seen at countless other restaurants, this is its own beast. The food is so popular that it's tradition to wait in the line that forms around the block nearly every morning. Service is excellent, the food is incredible, and the variety of delicious pancake options ranges from sweet to savory. Oh, and don't forget to try the hash browns, as they are simply some of the best we've ever had anywhere.”
