Great breakfast

Really nice breakfast, lots of food and reasonably priced. Location with parking close by and all of us was served in good time by two lovely ladies. There was 16 of us and we were lucky space was available.

Dinner was expensive, average, and cramped, the chairs were uncomfortable, but our server was lovely. Breakfast, however, was great. We went back the following morning and were very pleased. The breakfast was cheap, delicious and gave me all the custom things I asked for without hesitation. So great.

We eat at this charming historic little place whenever we are in the area - the breakfasts are amazing - huge portions and delicious, especially the homemade bread, and great value too.

Quaint restaurant...fantastic food, wonderful service . We were so impressed with our dinner we returned a second time. Would highly recommend the chowder and all seafood dishes..taste like fresh from the ocean that day. Very large portions.

Visited this location for a late morning breakfast. The service was fine, nothing special. The breakfast was huge, 2 eggs, 3 bacon, pile of hash browns and 2 huge slices of home made whole wheat bread. The serving was more than generous. Coffee good, and kept flowing. The offering of jams wasn't there and the eggs were somewhat greasy. The... More

Went there for lunch. This little yellow house is very quaint! I had French onion soup and my husband had chowder . We both thoroughly enjoyed our soup. We shared a bacon,chicken and mushroom quesadilla . Everything was made from scratch . Would go back for lunch!

We stopped there for lunch and had a wonderful meal. The place is small like eating in your grandmas house. Very friendly staff, homey feel and tasted like Grandma had made our meal. If we are ever back in that area again we will make sure we stop in and have a meal.

... but this place is really great. We went for brunch, and food is great, tasty and plenty of it. That toast must be made from home made bread, cause it was just great. The space is cosy and feels like you are in someone's house. They have a nice porch and also a back patio, so make sure you... More
