Joint with a funky vibe, but the food is merely OK. I agree with another review about the pancakes being gummy. I would rate the eggs as fine but nothing special. Service is a bit on the slow side for me but others might rate it as a relaxing place to have breakfast while deciding on the day's activities.

Find a table, leave your cap on it and walk to the kitchen in the back to order. Enjoy the best buckwheat waffle with fresh fruit (special of the day when we visited -- chef's wife Molly' birthday). Bus your own table and feel like a local. Sip a cappuccino to deflect the morning chill. Husband preferred the crisp biscotti... More

Yes, it's not as good as it once was (new owners took over this past Spring) but I can still recommend it. For breakfast. With reservations. The skillet breakfast is perfect and perfectly satisfying. And, when the kitchen, sadly very rarely, makes corn bread, it's my favorite way to spend Sunday. Now for the bad - my dining companion was... More

right on Main Street, grab a seat by the window and order a chai tea or coffee or any of the other selections they have; regular prices, they offer soy or almond milk as an option, which is good. nice bakery items as well.

The brisket sandwich was filled with thick slices of meat; can get crowded. Staff is friendly & food was very good. Dill pickles are sour & great. Pass on the smoothies.

Just returned from Camden. We had pancakes they were gummy and not well cooked. The coffee was weak. The atmosphere may be nice but the food is terrible. peek in but don't eat here.

Read the trip advisor reviews and all the other travel guide reviews so with ultra high expectations we had breakfast/lunch on a Tuesday afternoon in August. As expected the place was jumping, as expected they did a great job of handling what appeared to be chaos, as expected the place has casual character (aka old), as expected the service was... More

Small diner downtown that does a great turnover with some inspired breakfast combinations and some solid basics. Homefries a bit on the oily side for my liking. Great gourmet coffee (help yourself) and scones. Come early, this place is superbusy and seems like the go too place for morning grub for the locals not cooking for themselves. Grab a booth... More

I had the best omelet of my life here, and the way the service operates at this jammin little place is terrific! Loved it.
