Great Breakfast!

We ate here on Patriots day 2015. I had an egg and sausage dish that was served with a whole potato that had been cut in half and deep fried! It was delicious! It was served with hollandaise sauce and toast. It he eggs were very good as well, the hollandaise was not something I had enjoyed with... read more

Well, the home fries were precooked, warmed over and tasted of scorched oil, the breakfast meats were also precooked warmed over and over cooked during the warm over making quality indeterminable, eggs crisp, toast not. I guess when you're the only game in town....We can't imagine where some of the other reviewers ate, but we would like to go there,... More

Always a great meal and the service is good and quick as well, even when they are busy on Sunday mornings. There is a wide variety of breakfast choices and they are all good. My favorites are to numerous to list here. When I get the omelet I usually have leftovers for the next day or later in the day... More

Our mens group recently switched our breakfast meetings here & were very satisfied. The food was good & plentiful. The price was fair and the staff very attentive. Parking is a little tough but no more than a short walk that helps your appetite.

This used to be a nice small town place to have breakfast or lunch, but the last few visits were terrible. Several persons in my party had breakfast with the homefries, we all thought that the potatoes tasted spoiled and mentioned it to the waitress. She seemed to take this as a personal insult walked away and when she came... More

This restaurant isn't bad, it is the servers I have a problem with. They are rude, awful at serving and what really got me was when I gave the girl a large bill, whereas I didn't have smaller bills. We waited and waited and waited for the change which never came. Finally I told another waitress to send our waitress... More

Have been going here for breakfast for years. The food is always good, the specials are always inventive and delicious, and I am not sure I can ever remember having a bad meal! Gets very busy on weekend mornings for breakfast.

This place is great. I always get the popeye benedict and it is always perfect. All the other food looks great. They move the tables very well. The wait is sometimes long but it is worth it.
