We just visited on Saturday may 16th. Long wait...we waited an hour to get in...but we knew that going in. Seemed very clean, food was fresh. They seemed a little short handed. Help wanted sign out front. But overall good food, atmosphere was very loud...a lot of people in a small previous gas station. Prices were reasonable too. I'm not... More

This breakfast place serves a wide variety of breakfast items, from the standard bacon and eggs to exotic French toast and inventive combinations. Big portions and impeccable service in an unlikely converted gas station. A true delight.

Our first attempt to have breakfast here was on a Saturday. When we arrived the place was packed with a huge wait. We had mentioned it to friends, and the next morning, Sunday, they tried and failed. Right then we decided it had to be on a weekday, so we pitched up on a Thursday morning, and were not disapponted.... More

Nice place a short distance from downtown attractions. Two of my party had eggs and pancakes and the other one had a burger. The pancakes were huge and fluffy. The blueberry ones had nice large berries, not those tiny ones that come from Maine! The burger was OK, nothing special. The decorations were nice and reminiscent of a '50s diner.

Arrived at about 1:30 on a Saturday to a nearly full house (Including outside patio which was open) and were immediately seated and served. A comprehensive menu of breakfast and lunch choices with some speciality items. I tried the Pasta Mama (whole wheat pasta scrambled with eggs and cheese and bacon) which was delicious! The waitress suggested that I include... More

Had brunch there today and the biscuits and gravy are excellent, as are the cheesy grits. All the food at the tables around us looked wonderful. Superb renovation of an old gas station! A bit noisy due to the block walls. Charming patio dining area, too.

This restaurant is a great stop for breakfast! Make sure to get the java french toast and for a special occassion a mimosa! The building is bright and cheery and the food is delicious and fairly priced. Saturdays often have a lengthy wait time but it is worth it!

Great local place for breakfast. Good food and good service, lots of menu options, everything from basic eggs and toast to fun items like fried bologna. Staff is friendly, very family friendly with lots of locals there the minute they open on Saturdays.

It is a busy place where you are likely to have to wait your turn. My wife and I have been here a couple of times and plan for this a regular stop. Everything on the menu is great. Fresh, cooked to perfection and served with attention to detail. This place is a local favorite but if you are within... More
