Hands down bet breakfast in Ellsworth. Can be busy at times and service can be a bit slow but consistently good with great breakfast food. We love this place

This is a one stop shopping place where you can see a Doctor, have your hair cut, get dentures, and fix up your funeral. Seriously, on the outside, it looks funky, but in the inside, it is where everyone goes for good reason! Good food!!!!!!

Excellent breakfasts served all day, at least until afternoon closing. Helpful, competent waitresses and friendly fellow customers. Located in a mall with restrooms down the hallway. Delicious coffee comes with the wide variety of breakfast choices. We'll be back for breakfast.

Great breakfast! Perfectly cooked. Their oatmeal toast is very good, the home fries crunchy outside, steaming hot inside and our omelettes perfect! I can't believe how one sole cook can handle such a large crowd of hungry folks.

Above average diner type food. Sit at the counter and watch the cook prepare your food. Service is friendly and attentive. A hangout for locals.

Wow!!!!! Breakfast should be easy to get right. Most places seem to miss it somehow..... Sylvia's nails it with the potatoes alone. Crisp and golden on the outside, soft and steaming hot inside. Fresh eggs, meat and great toast never hurt either..... Worth the tight quarters. Yum is the best word.....
