This is a small restaurant, basic breakfast fare, generally consistent in what they deliver. Under a previous owner (I believe), their breakfast offerings seemed to be a bit more funky, e.g. Indian Pudding pancakes were an occasional special and they were fantastic. We've taken to going here lately when we wanted breakfast on a Sunday that was pretty speedy and... More

Not many choices for breakfast in Saco-Biddeford, but this is the best, if a little off the beaten track.

Went here with the family and, after having a little trouble locating it off Rt. 1, settled in breakfast. My wife and daughter had the enormous-sized and delicious pancakes and the chocolate chip pancakes. I had a omelet with mozzarella, sweet peppers and sweet and hot sausage, which left me stuffed. (Next time, I will sub in chorizo for the... More

They make their own muffins and everything else. I had a great omelette, but they've got some seriously sweet breakfast offerings such as french toast filled with marshmallow and topped with chocolate sauce and whipped cream. Very accomodating for allergies and large groups

Barely visible behind a car wash on route one, this place was worth the search! They have standard fare combined with some creative dishes to meet the cravings of most Prompt and pleasant service, generous well cooked portions, and reasonable prices, though the surcharge for the in house baked bread was a bit over the top (but quite good!) will...
