We were looking for a good quick breakfast and found it at Simple Simon's. The restaurant is diner-like with basic, simple food. The prices are reasonable and the service is good.

I ate here at lunchtime while waiting to go and board the Portland to Yarmouth Nova Scotia. The food had very little taste. The staff was Ok frendly enough, but to clean. Only tried this establishment because it was convenient.

I love this place. It's a small restaurant. Eat-in or take out. We have eaten both breakfast and lunch there. Prices are reasonable and the owner and staff are very friendly! Very small, seats about 40 but we were able to bring family of 9 in there! Everyone had something different and we all loved our meals!

This is a local, mom & pop type of restaurant. It was open seating with the grill and the counter in sight of all the tables. There was mostly a senior crowd late on the Friday morning we visited. When we arrived and were told to seat ourselves. After a few minutes the waitress came, we ordered coffee and began... More

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
