Ordered eggs benedict. Menu described the hollandaise sauce as homemade. I do not care for the powdered Knorr brand that most restaurants use so when I saw the sauce was their own I was excited. Needless to say I was very disappointed when my order arrived. Not only was it not real hollandaise sauce it was smothered with it and... More

Hello berniebauers, Thank you for stopping in. I'm sorry if our hollandaise sauce did not meet your expectations. Owner and Chef Beth makes everything from scratch with old family recipes and we will take your advice into consideration. Our omelets are our specialty, so definitely try that next time!

The food was good and the portions large. However there is a sign on the door as you go in that they only take cash, but that there is an atm available next door.

We stopped here on our way further into Maine. Waited 5-10 minutes for table. Not bad. Once seated got drinks and after ordering something to eat, waited WAY to long for breakfast. Really unacceptable!!! Needless to say we left with Two young children still hungry!😤

Its not fancy, it seems to be very popular with the locals, many complain about the slow service but I can actually say the few times we ate here we had no problem. We sometimes stop here on our way to Ogunquit. The breakfast is a solid average and the prices reasonable. If the place is busy then there is... More

This is a hidden gem. The breakfasts are great and reasonably priced. I had the Fire Fly wrap and it was the best! Love coming here when we visit Maine.

The potato chunk homefries here are perfectly moist, tender, exactly browned and non-oily, chewy or tasteless. Omelets are very fluffy and light, with a quality cheese that made each component able to be tasted and the homemade cinnamon toast was worth ordering, if quite pricey (just 2 slices cost nearly $6!). Hot chocolate was average, but the potatoes were a... More
