They are known for their cinnamon rolls which are an absolute must on the menu. You can also purchase them boxed to go.
The menu is on the paper placement and includes Swedish pancakes served with lingonberries. I think they taste like mini cranberries. They have eggs benedict which is not my favorite. Rather than a nice Canadian bacon, they slap a slab of ham over both English muffins. I do Like the eggs Florentine, made with creamed spinach and they have a rich crab cakes benedict too. My sister loved the veggie omelette. The egg dishes come with the choice of potatoes or fruit cup and the choice of cinnamon roll, toast, English muffin or bagel. Each breakfast entree costs $6.95 to $8.95. The potato pancakes are sweet rather than salty.
There is a parking lot entrance between the buildings a few doors east of the restaurant. On the weekend there is an attendant that asks that diners get a slip of paper validated. Some people like to tip him.

Heaven anyone? If you really like them, you can get some more to take home from the bakery area.
There are several spinoffs of this restaurant around town, but this is the first (and best) location in my mind. The one near Foster Avenue and Clark isn't bad either.
