The food was terrible and seemed like they pulled it out of a freezer and defrosted it. We ordered the corned beef and hash which was soggy. They forgot to bring over sides and messed up on the drink orders. The stuffed french toast was absolutely disgusting. It was spongy and rubbery. We expressed thr distaste to the waitress and...

Terrible. I ordered French toast without powered sugar and after waiting more then 30 mins I saw the cook wipe the powered sugar off with his bare hands! Then he flipped the slices over and transferred to a new plate. I only was able to watch this because we were at the counter. Needless to say we left Gross using... More

Not only was the food and coffee great but Martha was an excellent host. Wife had corned beef hash, 2 eggs and country fries which was excellent. I had a scramble with ham and provolone cheese and it too was excellent. Highly recommend and was our favorite breakfast place in Ellsworth.

In the summer, there is usually a wait, but it is completely worth it. The food is incredible, it's definitely a hidden gem, a hole in the wall, but it has such incredible breakfast foods and the staff is very friendly.

This is a nice little diner tucked away at the strip mall that serves a very good breakfast and the value of the meal was good. We both got very good service and a very good hearty breakfast
