Comfortable local diner

Let's start with coffee, better than Dunkin Donuts. Their three egg omelet, built any way you want it, is outstanding, They do a very brisk take out business, coffee and egg sandwiches, so it does get very brisk if you are seated too close to the cash register.

Plenty of seating and a good place to wake up to.

For several years I have enjoyed Hash in a Dash but when it is offered as a special the Biscuits and Gravy are the best I have ever had. Even better than any I have ever down South.

If breakfast is the most important meal of the day, this is one of the most important places to visit. A good family place with excellent food, my family and I have been regulars for more than ten years. Their breakfast specials are always worth trying and the corned beef hash is awesome. For lunch, you can't go wrong with... More

All the rave reviews of the hash, I had to order a side of it to try as my workplace put in an order. I received a burnt offering of hash remains for the price of $5. I guess I shouldn't complain about the tiny portion size for the price as I fear it would have been more charred offerings.... More

I like to try corned beef hash when I stop at a restaurant for breakfast. Luckily for me I even like that hash that comes out of a can, which most places choose to serve. But every now and then I hit a spot that actually makes their own - sometimes good and sometimes just so-so. The hash here is... More

If you are a fan of real corned beef hash this is the place to go. We moved from CT in 2000 and whenever we order hash at a restaurant we talk about how it is not as good as Top O' the Mornin. Never had a bad meal there.

Very good breakfast menu. with The exception of no home fries. (only hash browns). Breakfast is very large and comes with a free muffin. Place is a little outdated but one of the best breakfast joints in town. The breakfast menu offers a large variety. I am a large man and have trouble finishing my food. Good overall value.

My fiancé tried the hash for the first time this visit and said it was awesome! We've been coming here for years and I our food is always good but the waitstaff is so miserable. If you ask them a question they seem annoyed and get snippy. And then when the food comes out they drop the check with the... More

The corned beef hash here is excellent. The home fries are boring...the breakfast specials are ok...all the standard egg and pancake dishes meet the expectations. I don't need much atmosphere when I go out for breakfast, this place seems to know that well. The waitresses bump into each other continuously behind the counter because there is little place to move.... More

Maybe it was a bad day .. I am not sure but this was the worst breakfast I have ever had. I ordered a bacon and cheese omelet. The omelet had almost zero cheese and it was so burnt it was inedible. The service was not good either. I had to ask 3 times for a glass of water and... More
