Order perfectly cooked bacon, fried eggs and eggs benedict. The Gem guarantees you tasty pancakes. It might be cool to enjoy great coffee.

25 minute wait for brunch and over $35 with tip for 2 kids and an adult. Portions smaller than I remember. Disappointed. Great staff.
My very first visit was great! I really enjoyed the food...Me and My girlfriend had the veggie omelette and wings with sour dough toast. The service was top notch. The waitress made sure our coffee and water was refilled. I got wing sauce on my shirt and the waitress asked if I wanted some soap and water...GREAT CUSTOMER ATTENTION AND A HIGH LEVEL OF CUSTOMER ATTENTION, which made my first experience a four. It made me to want to go back a day later. OMG! This time the service was average and food below average. Me and my girlfriend got the philly cheesesteak omelette which was good. The sour dough toast that came with it was burnt. My girlfriends toast came out great but my toast was noticably burnt. The burnt portion was turned under to where you couldn't see it. So, when I got it..I already knew I wasnt going to eat but I purposely turned the burnt portion over so the waitresses or management walking by could see it..No one said anything like "did your toast come out like that or can I put another order in for toast and the waitress came to the table several times to re-fill. The pancakes were a little overcooked so I thought but my girlfriend explained to me that those were Northern pancakes and not like southern style fluffy pancakes. Second time around I didnt have good energy and vibe as a customer. And the first time was way more busier than second time...
Lisa is an amazing server! She was attentive, and went out of her way to ensure we had a great time. My Mom and I had a lovely lunch yesterday. Thank you for being so sweet, Lisa! Looking forward to coming back for sweet potato fries! The menu is large! Something for everyone. Hoping they offer matzoh ball soup or split pea soon!
