Nice local spot

Nice little Mom 'n Pop place. Server was charming and efficient. Food was not fancy but it was good and fresh. We would go back if we were in the area again.

In addition to providing fun distraction for little ones (coloring materials, fun decor, table games), this place has family friendly staff, especially Nancy. Top off a fun experience with delicious food and coffee (order the corn beef hash) and you can't lose! Great gem in the center of Clinton.

The breakfast was plain. The flamingos that they decorate with are fun but the staff was so rude! I ate an omelette with rye bread. I've had worse, I've had better. Nothing too exciting.

Had been here many times for breakfast, but today was the first time for lunch, and the food and service is the same...GREAT.

My kids love going for the breakfast, and each time we go the restaurant never lets them down - consistently good, quality food and decent prices. They order pancakes, waffles, eggs, bacon.... Servings are large and the tell take sign of a good place - Dad, can we go to Coffee Break again

Decided to try this place for breakfast, arriving a few minutes before 9 a.m. on a Sunday. Ordered a couple minutes after being seated, and were served our coffee and tea. Looking around at a few other tables, we began to wonder why another couple who were there before us had not been served yet. They eventually were around 9:25.... More
