I eat here once a month with a group of fellow retired colleagues. My former co-workers are "morning people." It is not uncommon for part of the group to be standing outside by the door just waiting for the place to open. The group normally consists of 10 people. We push tables together. Our server is always great. She comes... More

Just outside of the main drag it is worth it. They make their bread and use nitrate free bacon. They offer eggs and also tofu. Egg whites- no problem and no extra charge. I had a garden veggie omelet and my wife had the hippie scramble with tofu and one egg. Their homemade cinnamon and sticky buns looked awesome. Oops.... More

Haddock chowder was great...best I have had in ages. Thanks for having more fish than potatoes! Also first place I have eaten where they mix in the salad dressing into the salad instead of serving on side..genius! No lettuce, tomatoes, and onion battle at your seat 😄

We stumbled across this place while looking for breakfast. Wow! The food was great. It came out hot. The service was attentive. My poached eggs cooked perfectly. Then we decided to go back and try lunch. Another home run meal. You can get breakfast all day or order lunch items. Even the desserts were delicious .... we tried the whoopie... More

The breakfast menu is large enough for almost anyone to find something to be pleased with. The food is solid diner fare. Service is usually good. We have eaten here several times. They have recently expanded to have more seating. Ask for a table on the outside deck on a nice day. It is crowded an noisy for breakfast so... More

The breakfast menu is the biggest ever, however execution is no better than other good restaurants. Service, however, leaves something to be desired - it took almost an hour for our order for 4 persons to arrive, the 5th person had to wait even longer! Maybe this was an anomaly?

We enjoyed breakfast at Home Kitchen TWICE during our recent trip to the Rockland area. First was on a Sunday morning when they were crazy busy. We waited about 15 minutes - well worth it! It was so awesome we came back on Wednesday morning before leaving the area at the end of our trip. Be sure to get the... More

So many options, so hard to choose. When I saw homemade corned beef hash that was it! Food was really good. Sticky buns are huge & sinful! WOW!

It was a beautiful day out so we sat at the upper deck. This is our second time here and we were not disappointed. My husband had the Corned Beef and Swiss Cheese omelet and I had the Meat Lovers Cast Iron omelet. Both came with toast and the coffee was endless. A great place for breakfast.

Home kitchen serves excellent breakfasts, with great service. Their coffee is also terrific. Sweet rolls are a must. Gluten free options are also a draw for those with dietary restrictions.
