  • Xian DSubstandard food, I feel like they just capitalize on the overflow/less open minded customers who don't want the wait, diversity of Sweet Maple.

  • Dena F.Great for breakfast. Not the greatest for lunch.

    55555 by Dena F.

  • Matt B.Good food, tight space. Spanish Harlem: spread pico around; it's what makes the dish. Giant plates + small tables = awkward geometry. Tightly spaced tables: I've seen urinals with more elbow room.

  • Stephanie I.House potatoes AND a side of mini goodness(pancakes or waffles) with an omelette? yes, please! Coffee is great with a chocolate croissant! Tables are a little small, but great place nonetheless.

  • Ross G.The Taylor St frittata was a bit salty for my taste. Prosciutto does make it salty, but was prepared with more salt.

  • Giric G.Pancakes!! Mamma miaaaaa

    55555 by Giric G.

  • Meitar M.Somewhat posh but super friendly, the wait staff will let you sit & use their free Wi-Fi with as little as an order of coffee. But beware, the AT&T Wi-Fi is spotty. Wifi password: greatpancake

  • Dan S.Do not ask for sugar free syrup and do not ask for hot/warm syrup.....you will be disappointed by answers to both questions.

    55555 by Marco M.

  • Olivia D.I LOVE the Spanish Harlem omelette! So delish! Also love that you can get mini pancakes or mini waffles instead of toast and get the best of savory and sweet in your brunch!

    55555 by Olivia D.

  • Quernzy SocialThe best pancakes! Don't even bother looking at the omelette menu. My BF recommends the choc chip bacon pancakes.

  • Kim B."look honey they have a $14 omelet. I've never had a $14 omelet." this is what I heard a woman say to her husband as they passed by and read the sign. Stax, your menu is overpriced for this area/city!

    55555 by Stephanie M.

  • Bob O.Not Reccomended. Very slow to get mediocre food for way to much money. Waitress never came ba k to azk how things were. Eggs overcooked. Potatoes undercooked. Bad experience all around.

  • Shannon H.The mixed berry crepes are delicious.

    55555 by Shannon H.

  • Jackie M.I cannot get over how great this place is. BLT, Brisket Hash, and the benedict w/ polenta are unreal. Kind owners and staff.
