    Came here for brunch and it was delicious! I had crepes and they were good. The service was great and food came out quickly, even though they were somewhat busy. It was a great place to stop for a meal before getting on the train, which is only 5 minutes from here.

    Both times I have eaten here for Sunday brunch the place was packed but parking was easy and we were seated right away. They keep coffee mugs on the table ready for a cup to be poured. My friend wanted a cup so they filled er up. I started looking at the cup now full of coffee thinking I saw a brown hair on the lip of the mug. Turns out it was a hairline crack and coffee went everywhere. After replacing the cup the waitress waited for our orders. I had a couple of questions but while I was in the middle of my first question's sentence, the waitress walked away. My friend and I both looked at each other like ummm...okay. She came back and answered what she thought I was asking (It wasn't). I then started asking my second question and she did it again! After returning I had given up and just ordered a breakfast sandwich. It arrived quickly and my special request was fulfilled correctly (plus I was charged correctly). My friend had stuffed waffles and he was a little underwhelmed.
    Throughout the meal the male server assistant repeatedly peeked his head around the corner looking at my friend. Doesn't mean much as far as this review goes, I just thought it was kinda weird.
    My friend went back a second time and ordered biscuits and gravy. He said that meal was much better and now he understood why people seem to like this place so much.
    He and I went back two weeks later, me ordering the same special request breakfast sandwich and him ordering the same biscuits and gravy. My order arrived and was correct but it wasn't as good as before. The flavor was somewhat lacking this time and my breakfast sandwich was falling apart (which shouldn't happen when it was just a croissant, hard fried egg and two slices of American cheese). Oh and this is an $8 breakfast sandwich. I risked paying that a second time because I liked it so much the first time. The biscuits and gravy were also a fail. No flavor, the gravy had zero seasoning and lacked even the slightest bit of spice.

    I was in South Bend for a wedding and we decided to meet here the next morning before driving home. Bad call on my part.. this isn't the kind of place you eat at and then hop in the car for a 5-hour drive.

    First off, the place was packed on a Sunday morning. When they told me it would be a 5-10 minute wait, I thought there was no way. Judging from the number of people who were standing around, I figured it would be at least a half hour. Wrong. 5 minutes is all we waited!

    We almost needed a second table for all of the food we got. Big breakfasts with multiple plates for hash browns, pancakes, etc. Everything made to order and everything excellent. The pancakes were slightly sweet on their own, so I didn't even use syrup.

    This is a great little place that will remain in my bookmark collection :)
