Good lunch served by a waiter with a warm smile

A colleague at work recommended this place which I must have driven past about 500 times without stopping. My husband and I were out for a drive yesterday and we decided to try it. He ordered an english muffin with peanut butter and honey (his favorite) and I had the fried haddock sandwich. Service... read more

Waitress not ours immediately took care of that.. All is good. The lay out is odd tables face the kitchen area ,where employees are prepping ,refilling coffee pots etc not very appetizing..... More

We have eaten at the Freeport Cafe four times in the past few months when we have been in the area overnight. If one stays at the Best Western Freeport Inn, there is a 15% discount on meals at this cafe (and also at the Muddy Rudder down the road). We have been impressed with the good quality of the...

Stopped on my way home from Florida, having had a great meal here in April 2014. I choose the breakfast pancake special and found the serving too big (two huge pancakes) with too little fruit to make it worth the price, and it was not served very attractively. Other meals looked much better than mine. Service was average, the restaurant... More

Predictable, friendly, this restaurant is what most people want in a breakfast place. No rush, all the standard options and friendly wait staff. Not too expensive. Free breakfast for veterans on their day. Convenient location right on Route 1.

The food is typical for a breakfast cafe, and the quality is pretty good. It's not exceptional, but the prices are good and menu is diverse. The service was excellent. We'd go again when in the area.
