My wife and I had breakfast on a Monday. Service was good due to a weekday setting. While the pancakes were tasty and large, the rest of the meal was nothing special. Not bad, just average.

It can get very busy there, but great value and great service. Parking can be a challenge some days. We were there for breakfast, will have to go back for lunch sometime.

Has a great, early breakfast at this vintage diner. Great fast and friendly service. Popular with early bird local fishermen and tradesmen, this is a small, family owned cafe. Breakfast seems to be their specialty, many options to chose from: omelets, pancakes, waffles, etc,

Had breakfast here Jan 1 2015. Busy morning for them, but well worth it. Service was still attentive (several offers to refill coffee), food was great. The cinnamon swirl French toast was a bit dry, could tell the bread was old, but everything else we had was wonderful. Would go back!
