If you serve breakfast, they will come

A couple years after Maxfield's Pancake House opened at Audubon Court, 333 W. Brown Deer Rd., in Fox Point, a second location opened in Tosa, kitty corner from Mayfair Mall. Probably not coincidentally, the two Maxfield's opened on sites that once were home to the popular Heinemann's.

When those places closed, they left holes in the neighborhood breakfast markets. So, it shouldn't have come as a surprise when I entered the Tosa Maxfield's, 2727 N. Mayfair Rd., this weekend that it was doing a bustling business.

Maxfield's, which has a warm, modern feel, is efficiently run and though the pretty big eatery was busy, we were seated immediately and greeted by a server who gave us menus and cleared out quickly so someone could fill our coffee cups and another could pour the water.

After a few minutes to peruse the illustrated, very long menu, our cheerful server was back to take our orders. Barely 10 minutes later, we had our food. And a lot of it.

I had a ham and cheese omelet ($7.49) with hash browns and, yes, I know it's too much starch, but I opted for the potato pancakes instead of flapjacks. Everything was piping hot, delicious and copious.

My companions had combo platters that were similarly satisfying and nearly overwhelming in terms portion sizes. We had some to take home for later.

Maxfield's is open daily 6 a.m. until 4 p.m. You can see the sprawling menu here. Both locations have parking.

There were lots of tables with kids when I visited, too, and since ours is a breakfast-loving household, I'm sure we'll be back soon.
