The hype is real with this place! With COVID, their proper safety measures helped me feel more comfortable. Honestly anything you get from this menu will be amazing, I’m sure of it. Everything was cooked perfectly, and tasted great. We got cinnamon pancakes and the *I got a latte, but didn’t like it.* however, will still give this place 5 stars because the foooood!
We went here 2 days in a row and would have made it back a third time if we didn’t have an early morning flight to catch. The staff are friendly, the crepes are delicious, the Los Altos Benedict I definitely would recommend, as well as the Mexicana skillet It’s just awesome breakfast can’t really say any more that. The only thing I probably didn’t like were the waffles, but that was just me personally.
Two years later and still loved it as much as the last time. The wait was down due to current events and we got in right away, sitting outside was lovely and they look so many great precautions for masks and social distancing. Very pleased!
Went here on a Tuesday around 1130 and grabbed the last outdoor table. Everything was covid observed, including individual packets for condiments except ketchup which came in a small ramekin. I didn’t catch the name of my server but he was fantastic, friendly, kept his distance, asked me to put my mask on when he was approaching & I didn’t see, and just very accommodating. Best part was that on top of that, I had THE best classic eggs benedict I’ve ever had, everything was perfect. Loved the thick cut ham that had a perfect sear, delicious and good amount of hollandaise, perfect poach on the eggs and perfectly cooked hash browns. I was pleasantly delighted by how good this was, as I just figured I’d go here for my eggs bennie craving. I had the unsweetened iced pineapple green tea, that was also lovely, was able to get refills as needed and was even offered my last refill in a to go plastic cup. That’s hospitality!
They got us in within 10 minutes on labor day at 9:30. The coffee was good and they were very cleanly. The Rutherford omelette was definitely amazing but the cinnamon roll pancakes were nothing to write home about. Also the chicken and waffles the chicken was definitely pre-frozen chicken which kind of ruins the dish. Overall it was a four because of all the other options on the menu- we would definitely try it again.
Wow, such a great breakfast place! When I read other reviews saying this place had the greatest pancakes, I was a bit skeptical, but it’s true! I did have the best pancakes of my life here! My girlfriend and I ordered the Los Altos Benedict, the kid’s menu Berry Bliss pancakes, and the Two Eggs Any Style (scrambled) with regular pancakes. We really enjoyed everything we got! I didn’t realize it, but the berry bliss pancakes are blueberry pancakes with berries and a berry drizzle! Also, the portion sizes are quite large and they don’t skimp on the meat, sauce, or berries! I am looking forward to trying more on their menu since it is pretty big and has lots to offer. While they are allowing dine-in right now, I chose to pick-up my order and eat at home. It was a seamless ordering and pick-up process, and my order was correct and ready on time. Everyone I interacted with was also very friendly and helpful. 10/10 you should try it if you’re interested!
Usually the wait is almost unbearable, but I got lucky and was able to snag a table on a Friday afternoon. While indoor and outdoor were both offered to me, I opted for outdoor as that’s the only method of dining im comfortable with right now. The menu was available via QR code which is a great way to minimize contact. I ordered the Berry trio French toast and a side of scrambled eggs. The portion was enormous! I didn’t thoroughly read the description and discovered some berry cream between my French toast slices. While it was very good, this isn’t something I recommend eating regularly. It’s more like dessert or a treat or cheat meal. The French toast was really good, it’s on brioche. I kinda only went just to say I did it. This is more of a volume based chain style restaurant, which means certain elements of intention and care that you find at smaller mom and pop shops probably won’t exist. If you’re in the area and can get in, check it out but I wouldn’t make it a must see or destination spot.
We drove all the way from Grand Rapids, MI to have breakfast. There were a few places in the running but we landed on this one. HOLY.MOLEY. This place really delivered a fantastic experience. The staff was SUPER friendly and we got our food super quick! The pancakes had a mascarpone cheese on it and it complimented the sweetness and balanced out the rest of my breakfast. The chorizo was kinda salty but it was still delicious. We will be recommending for people to make the special trip.
Key Lime Blackberry Pancake – 5/5. So delicious. Once you let go of the “key lime” expectations part since that flavor doesn’t get imparted at all, you can just enjoy this as a sweet incredible pancake. Garden Skillet – 4/5. Good if you’re in the mood for a hash. Lots of veggies. Would consider the cauliflower hash option next time since potato does get to be a lot. Churro french toast – 3/5. Whereas other items here like the banana bread french toast are better than normal banana bread, that’s the not the case here. You just wish these were normal churros.
This place is legit. Some of the best breakfast I’ve had. The service was great, attentive, and very friendly. We went during covid times and they did a great job of social distancing, people wearing masks, and service outdoors was just as comfortable as it would be indoors. We got the mexicana skillet with a side of their berry bliss on the side( for a small price upgrade) , but it provided the best sweet/savory combination. We also got the banana cream pie crepe as recommended from our waiter, and it was legit. Will mos def come back here when visiting Chicago It was even better that it was right next to the bean. So not only were we able to eat, but we could do all the touristy stuff right after.
