Great coming and going.

Ate here for breakfast on the way down to Key West and stopped for lunch on the way home. Nothing fancy but the food was very good. For breakfast the omlettes were the highlight. Biscuits and gravy were not to my liking. For lunch we had the BLT and a grilled cheese- both excellent, especially... read more

Ate here twice during a two week stay jn Matathon. Sat at counter and watched food being made from scratch. Prices were very reasonable and food was top notch. Friendly staff and good service.

Came to this place because of the nice reviews posted on TripAdvisor and left wondering if this was the place I had read about. Ordered the special and the special was fleeting. It never arrived. I do not recommend to anyone at all. Find a different place to eat breakfast

We stopped in here every day while we were in Marathon. The service is friendly and efficient. The food is fresh and made to order. None of the plates match and it's just a laid back place. We will be back!

What else do you need to know? The title says it all. The service was excellent, speedy and efficient. Our orders were served surprisingly quick and the breakfast was delicious.

Every time we come to the keys we eat breakfast here. It is a small hole in the wall but the food is always great especially for the price. Everyone who works here is extremely nice. The only two negatives I have is the service can sometimes be slow and the bathrooms are unkept and dirty.

Small place with friendly staff. Gets crowded. The breakfast was very good and came out quick. Everything was cooked perfectly! They even had scrapple that was cooked to perfection. It was a nice surprise to see scrapple on the menu and it was Habbersett scrapple to boot! Would definitely go back!

I grew up around NYC and traveling by car. I've spent my fair share of time in small diners and hole-in-the-wall-type establishments, and I have a great affinity for many of them. Heck, I've even eaten Christmas dinner at a Waffle House when on the road. I have an affinity for diner food done right. This is not it, and... More
