Friendly corner spot... full of locals.

Stopped for breakfast... good homestyle food. Self serve drinks... as many refills as you want. Quick and full of 'locals'.

Nothing fancy, who doesn't love a homestyle breakfast? You serve your own coffee. They have great prices!

I did a search of places to get a good breakfast in Fredericton. This place kept coming up with mixed reviews. Most of the negatives were from people having to get their own coffee...Really folks! Never one not to explore, my wife and I decided to give it a try. Much to our delight, there's free parking out front. Was... More

Ugh I don't know why this is voted and great. Went today and ordered two eggs sunny side up, bacon, toast and potatoes. The one egg was over cooked so it wasn't sunny and the other one was a little better. Potatoes were tasteless and bacon was paper thin. They don't even bring you your coffee! Will never go again....

Had the big breakfast, Great tasting, good portion except for the toast... very small piece. Self serve coffee which means don't have to wait for a refill, that's a plus as for decor plain and simple is the name of the game, will be back.
