Great soup

We had the heritage tomato gazpacho and grilled cheese sandwich. What a delicious find! The restaurant is located right on the main street of Camden, very close to the docks. The menu was limited, but not in a bad way. Each item seemed very interesting.

My wife and I stopped in this morning for breakfast. After reading the reviews we were up for something a little different than lobster or a diner. I had the basic breakfast with with turkey sausage while she had the veggie skillet plate. The wheat bread toast we had was very good and filling but needed a little more butter.... More

My wife and I stopped this morning for breakfast. A limited menu you order off the blackboard and the staff brings it to you.my wife had scrambled eggs with vegetable hash, I had blueberry pancakes with link sausage. Mine was very good, the vegetable hash was flavorful and interesting.

We stopped here for breakfast. We had skillet 1 and 2 and also granola. They were all really good. Granola was homemade and had yogurt, and berries in it. Portions were just right. It's small and you order at the counter and then they call your name.

Fun, delicious, healthy (not necessarily lo-cal but wholesome), fresh food. Have some blueberry pancakes with real maple syrup (what else?) and a fruit cup (actual fruit that is not just melon) to cut the sweetness. Great!

White stable-type booths and counter ordering at reasonable prices keep this a simple straightforward experience. We had brunch but there were good lunch options too. Serving size is generous but not gargantuan, for a change (eg 2 large pancakes rather than 3; 4 very thick slices of freshly made French toast; breakfast in a medium skillet). The only failing was...

This was a surprise to me. We were lured in by the sandwich board outside that listed lamb and lentil stew. Breakfast food served all day, great small assortment of sandwiches with bread made in house, soups, salads, quesadilla, etc. Their home brewed mint kombucha was fantastic, as was the rest of the food, including the brisket hash with eggs,...

Good solid breakfast place, good portions, and reasonably priced. You order at the counter and staff brings it to your table and/or you can take to go.
