The bread was toasty, the cheese perfectly melted, the veggies overflowing, and just the right amount... read more

A friend and I played hookie on hitting the gym recently, and decided to go to breakfast instead. I'd always known about Simple Simon's, but had not been until now. It is located in "car land" on Route 1 in So. Portland, and housed within a salt box style small building. There is nothing remarkable or memorable about the décor,... More

This is a small place offering breakfast and lunch only. The breakfast menu gives you complete control of your order by letting you have 1, 2, 3 eggs, pancakes etc so you can select exactly what to order. The food was served promptly and was very good. The restaurant is owned and operated by a husband and wife team who... More

Had breakfast. Perfectly fine - just nothing that wowed me. Eggs were good, home fries are not the crispy style, bacon was a bit salty, boyfriend liked his pancakes. Laid back atmosphere.

We stopped in for breakfast and had a good but average meal. They used to have a sign out that they had the best home fries in the state, and that's what brought us in the door. They were good, though they could have used a bit of seasoning. The carmelized onions added a lot of flavor, but they needed... More

Not the largest breakfast place we have ever been to with about 10-11 tables, but a real charm and down home character to this place. The food, eggs, bacon, wheat toast, blueberry pancakes and coffee were great and the service was really good. Prices were very reasonable and if we come back to the area again on vacation this place... More

We live in the area and go here often. Very friendly staff/service. Hot, quick, fresh breakfast. Reasonably priced. Serve breakfast and lunch. We have only been there for breakfast, but they also serve lunch. Considering their breakfasts, I would guess lunch is great, too. AND....very clean..spotless. Rather small..probably 45-50 seats, but worth the stop.

Great food, awsome service! Not fancy but quick and satisfying. Good for family or a quick bite before a flight.

Yummy, affordable breakfast for a family in South Portland ME. Great food, hot and freshly made to order - delicious. Small restaurant but staff very accommodating and only brief wait (5 min). Staff treat you like family and enjoy what they do. Food was delicious and wide variety of dishes for everyone. Very reasonably priced and much better than the... More

I didn't know there were restaurants where guests were treated like family anymore but that is exactly how things were at Simple Simon's. I had the Blueberry pancakes and they were fantastic. Was a very enjoyable experience.
