Went for breakfast yesterday, typical breakfast place. Were seated quickly, served very quickly. Food was typical of any breakfast place. Was busy as it was a Sunday. However, the server, older lady, short grey hair was very unpleasant and had no time for any conversation. I could have made my order on a computer and got more warmth than she... More

the food was great, the Service excellent, and really quick. On a Wednesday morning the place was packed and after eating there I understand why. Breakfast entrees were mostly under $5 and portions generous. My husbands two eggs, bacon, has Browns and toast were $2.95! Such a bargain compared to the hotel's price of $10.95 for the same food. And... More

We have been going here for 5 years. Never had a complaint. Very good biscuits and gravy. Country fried steak is a classic. Breakfast is the best value in town. Unlimited coffee and fresh eggs. The service is fast and people friendly. A local favorite for sure so skip the expensive chains. There are two locations and both are great.

I fine here about once a week. The menu has something for everyone. They have two locations in town as well. I recently needed a place for funeral dinner on short notice. We stopped in to ask about their party room. They worked with us to step up everything. It was one less thing to worry about during my fathers... More

We were seated promptly. The place was full of locals and that says a lot to me. The breakfast was delivered quickly. It was very tasty and prepared well. I highly recommend this establishment if you are staying in Dubuque

We were looking for a little local place for breakfast and our hotel recommended this place. When we walked in on a Sunday morning the place was very crowded, but were seated right away. The Breakfast menu was typical of an American breakfast menu. Prices were very reasonable, food was tasty. It appeared that both locals and out-of-towners were eating... More

This small, clean, busy restaurant was so convenient to our hotel (Holiday Inn Dubuque) that we walked over for a late breakfast. We both had one of the specials (two eggs, two toast, potatoes and sausage) and we left, owing a little over $6.00! We left a generous tip for the very nice server.
