Arrived early morning, just after open. Very polite and prompt service. Food was good but not spectacular. Carrot Cake waffle seriously needed a cream cheese frosting/sauce/topping, otherwise ok. Big portion of hash browns cooked well and not greasy! Sausage gravy has lots of sausage yet surprisingly lacked flavor. Men's restroom not dirty. Overall - purdy good but we will be trying other establishments rather than returning.


Amazing food. Awesome serving staff! Accommodated a large gathering like it was nothing. Thank you for a great experience!!

Hidden treasure in muncie. Fresh orange juice. That's the fastest we've ever got our food at any restaurant and it was all delicious. A little on the expensive side.. but over all so good and worth it!

Food was boring, my husband ordered from the senior menu, pointed to the pork chops on the senior menu and the still charged him for two when he said something, they said it's not on the menu. They said oh I guess it is. Then told him he needs to pay better attention next time. Absolutely NO way we will return. EVER

This place is amazing. It was nice and roomy with wonderful staff and an amazing menu. Their international omelets are delicious, and their pancakes taste homemade. Their coffee is really good, too. They run a tad pricier than IHOP, but it's very easy to see why since they serve alcohol and use uncommon ingredients. The mimosa flight is innovative and the parking lot was packed. It's absolutely worth a try.

Food was so so. Two of the five of us did not like their food and didn't finish it. I ordered a senior size Greek pork chop and was given a full size. When I mentioned it to the cashier, the waitress said it wasn't on the senior menu, then looked and saw it. The cashier just said I needed to pay more attention next time. I pointed to it on the menu when I ordered it. There will be NO next time.

Omg I can't say enough in this review. Our food was excellent. Our wait staff was on time ,we didn't have to wait . Our first time here and it will not be our last. We will return again. Thanks ?

Very mediocre. Massive menu offers everything, but everything we had was just ok. Staff seemed confused multiple people had to come to the table to ask basic questions. If you order the mimosa flight you aren't allowed two flutes to share it. They'll bring you an empty plastic cup if you'd like though. Also the nacho starter isn't nachos at all. It's a taco salad. Just an overall strange experience. Not really bad, but not really worth the hassle or the price.Also edited to add no one staff or customer was wearing a mask so the listing online about masks required is incorrect.

Our server Casey was excellent! She was so friendly and polite. The food was fresh and everything was correct. This is the best service we have had in Muncie. We will definitely be back.


We had my grandchildren visit and were hoping to have a nice brunch with them and my children. Upon arriving to be seated, we noticed that none of the servers were wearing masks. My grandchildren are under 12 and I was disappointed to see that servers and many patrons were maskless. Also - parking is difficult - especially with larger vehicles and handicapped parking - not enough space between parking spots. A rude male patron backed into the adjacent parking spot with an oversized pickup truck, almost hitting our car, and would have hit it if my husband would not have honked. There was no room to even open our door. When this male patron exited, he was openly carrying a huge handgun openly carrying. Definitely not a safe place to entertain children.
