Reader: Snooze Is Paradise -- Just Don't Go on Weekends

Says Diana:

Paradise....just won't go on weekends. Usually, too busy.
Says Tear Mon:
Been there once and I loved my upside down pineapple pancake.and the whipped butter on it, as well as my mimosa and bloody Mary. However, we had to stand outside in the rain for about an hour...shrugs.. I hear it's a wait to be served all the time.
