Nice Eatery!

Excellent family run eatery. You can get your basic small town breakfast, pizza and sandwiches (hot and cold) but everything is served with care and a smile. Affordable and fresh!

Simple, healthy breakfast with friendly and attentive service. Combination plates, omelettes, pancakes and french toast. French toast was light and fluffy. Coffee good but not strong. Lots of locals.

Quality ingredients cooked in an open kitchen with care by a friendly staff. The food never disappoints, nothing fancy, but good and filling. You really can't miss here. Their pastrami at lunch is perfect and their omelets can't be beat. Good value for good old fashioned food.

Simple Simons is, well, simple. It's a no-frills, Mom and Pop, breakfast/lunch spot. They don't have a vast selection or any pretentious "foodie" offerings but what they do, they do perfectly. We had great coffee, bacon, eggs and home fries (red potatoes nice and crispy) and omelettes. The bacon was crunchy, the eggs were fried to my exacting specifications, and... More

I've passed Simple Simon's many times and have always overlooked it, so when a business partner took me there, I was surprised. I ordered the veggie sub and was delighted when I took my first bite. The bread was toasty, the cheese perfectly melted, the veggies overflowing, and just the right amount of pepper on top. Definitely wanna try the... 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
