Aunt Emma's Pancakes Restaurant Review:

Aunt Emma's is a throwback to the 1950s with a true diner feel and old-school service. All-American buttermilk pancakes head up the long list of varieties that also includes coconut, banana nut, Hawaiian-style, potato, and chocolate chip, to name a few. If we're feeling wicked, we opt for sweet-tart German crêpes spritzed with lemon and dusted with powdered sugar. When the mood is cosmopolitan, it's the blintz-like Manhattan cakes, filled with tangy sour cream. Eggs, omelets, waffles and south-of the-border favorites round out breakfast, while the lunch menu boasts burgers and classic sandwiches like tuna melts, BLTs, French dips and more. Banana splits and brownie sundaes fulfill sweet cravings.
