Family friendly. Limited menu, but good food. Daily specials. Breakfast and lunch only. Good prices.

So I'm reading the menu and I trip over an item called Hungarian pancakes. What? They're thin, rolled pancakes containing walnuts, cinnamon and brown sugar. Awesome! My spouse had an omelet with spinach and cheese. The home fries are the real deal, not fried tater tots. A great breakfast served by a friendly, attentive staff!

So I was on my way to treat myself to a NICE breakfast at Rick's Diner which is pretty much right next door to Dad's, but on this morning the line was out the door at Rick's so I decided to go to Dad's. There was no wait, I sat at the counter, the waitress came up to me within... More

Have been coming here for years. Typically you can expect a good quality breakfast meal. However, the past three visits have been disappointing. Service is good, staff friendly and generally clean inside. Muffins have been terrible. I am thinking they either have someone new baking or they have changed recipes. You have to ask for jelly since they won't offer... More

I googled "breakfast places in Wallingford" and found this. As the name of the restaurant suggested, it was a Mom and Pop place. We were greeted by a lovely lady who walked us to a corner table. The choices,prices and service was great. It was far from fancy, but I highly recommend it!

been here several times over the years and my latest experience was the best. you know a breakfast place is good when there are probably 5 places within a mile and this one (and to be fair "Rick's) always has a line out front. they come up with some of the most interesting breakfast combos you can imagine, all using...

Food is good but the staff is a little disorganized which leads to slow service. Nothing outstanding about the menu and no printed menu of daily specials so you have to search for it. Not a bad place but there are better in town.
