I ate here after a long-night of visiting downtown Madison establishments. Walked in around 1 am and seated almost immediately. Decided to be adventurous and order the "mystery meal" and did not walk away disappointed. Would visit again after a night of drinking!

Well, everyone raves about this place. I can understand why -- the food is great and it is a trendy place. However, the wait can be long and tiring (standing). The seating is a funky mix of old chairs, stools, benches, etc., which means you can get stuck with poor or uncomfortable seating.

There is breakfast all day and they make a mean pancake. No problem with the food and the servers are fine.

We came in here late to catch a bite before an Overture Center show. Just made it in time as the line was slow and the seating iffy. Probably not coming back unless business is slow....

Good food but no air conditioning (just fans). It was 97 degrees outside the day we visited. It was probably 85 degrees inside. I personally do not like sweating while eating.

I've been here several years in a row, and the bacon remains outstanding. The best breakfast in town, hands down.

I went on a Sunday morning around 9am. The line to order was out the door and it took a while to reach the counter. This restaurant is set up to order at a counter, take a number, and seat yourself. The line was to the door the whole time we were there, it was a very busy place. But, the food came out quickly. I had a waffle and bowl of cheese grits, I also tried my husbands side order of breakfast potatoes. Everything was great. Prices were reasonable. Service was pleasant, attentive, and accommodating. I would recommend.
