This is your perfectly ordinary, run of the mill, small business restaurant. The food is perfectly ordinary. The decor is perfectly ordinary. The staff, though, are a very good, especially the older dark haired woman with glasses -- she was awesome.

This is a very small restaurant with a cozy feel. The food is very good and the service is terrific. We have eaten breakfast and lunch here and have never been disappointed.

Wallingfords Best Breakfast, lemon ricotta pancakes are the bomb and don't get me started on the corned beef hash! Great staff, family atmosphere, don't let the Sunday lines keep you away, it moves quick and worth the wait or do like we do and go early!

Breakfast anywhere is either OK, or great. Dad's has a very good breakfast. You never feel rushed. Family atmosphere. Prices are fair and competitive with other places in the area. They are always busy and a favorite of the locals.

Decided to eat here based on such favorable reviews/rating on TripAdvisor, but in this instance those who gave it such high remarks were terribly wrong. The food was bland (canned mushrooms anyone?) and way over priced ($70 for a family of four for a basic breakfast). Sorry Dad, but my recommendation is for those looking for a good breakfast to...
