4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

The portions were good and food quality excellent in a nice clean environment all for a fair price. No wonder mom heads here often. Glad she suggested the place on my last visit. Nothing fancy about the surroundings but easy to get to on route 1 and friendly staff. Next visit to home I won't hesitate to eat here again.

Very friendly family run breakfast/lunch restaurant that serves fresh, delicious meals! You won't come here for the ambience but will for the good food and friendly smiles! I have returned several times and will continue to do so.

The food here is not bad and not good just OK, service is a bit slow, place is clean. The atmosphere reminds me of a breakfast nook in a hotel. The people there are very friendly always with a smile. Would I return again?? Not sure maybe to see if things have changed

So happy I tried breakfast here, it's not far and a nice quiet atmosphere. The staff is friendly and quick, it's busy but not too busy. Great food and prices!

This is a small family run restaurant off route 1. We stopped in on our way Christmas tree shopping, and were pleasantly surprised. The service was quick and friendly. We had breakfast and everything was excellent.

Excellent huge sandwiches. Wonderful macaroni salad and very good french fries. Very friendly service! Hidden gem! I had the chicken salad panini, it was huge and very flavorful. If you don't kow about this place it's easy to drive right past it.

Just a warm, friendly atmosphere - you really get the family-run business vibe. And the food is really good, hearty fare. We were there for lunch - heard from other patrons that the brunch is incredibly good. Hoping to get back there soon for that.
