On our recent visit to the Freeport area, my wife and I had breakfast here on three consecutive mornings. On the first morning, the server was very pleasant and welcoming. On our subsequent visits we had another server who was a bit impatient and abrupt which resulted in us not enjoying our breakfast as much as we did on the... More

This is the closest restaurant to the Best Western Hotel and offers a 15% discount to guests of the hotel. We had dinner there and the food was OK. My wife had the Seafood Newburg which was bland and I had the turkey dinner which was chunks of real turkey, mashed potato and dressing covered in gravy - nothing special.... More

Hello in Hamilton- Well I'm glad you found your meal "acceptable". We've tried to keep the original feel of the Café. Our décor is not tired it is nostalgia, as our Café originated in the 40's. We just completed a renovation in February. The locals come here because the food is good and the service is very friendly. We will... More

Clam Chowder yummy with lots of clams, no potatoes to speak of. The crabmeat roll was plentiful but needed more mayo which they promptly provided. Also had a fried clam (whole belly) basket with onion rings and cole slaw. Lots of clams for $16.95. The previous day I had about half as many for $3 more so this was very... More

This Cafe seems to be a locals favorite but I'm not sure why. We stopped in for dinner just to notice one poor over worked server acting as hostess server and table cleaner at once. Try as she could it was an impossible job. Finally seated the service was good. The salad was very fresh but the entrees were over... More

This is a unique cafe that has been around for decades and from what I heard from the locals has not dropped their standards yet. If there is a line-up have the patience to wait as it will be well worth it. The food and the staff are both excellent.
