Great food, long wait

The food here is very good. But expect a lengthy wait on weekends and holidays. Free coffee whilst you wait though

Banana pancakes light and delicious! Sister got an omelet that had to have at least 3 very large eggs, onions, broccoli & cheese, Excellent !! Our waitress was an older woman and she was super nice and knew the menu very well! Side of bacon my sister got was enough for 2!! Cash only at this place !!

Been here three times now and all were great. Twice have had the lobster eggs Benedict which was excellent as were the home fries. Service is also very prompt, pleasant, and helpful. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

The only drawback to the Village Pancake House are the long lines on Sundays. It is not uncommon to wait for an hour before being seated. The food is really that good.

Wonderful fresh food, In fact, the best omlette i have ever eaten. Great table service and delish coffee. We waited for tables both Sat and Sun., but free coffee was offered and the wait is worth it. Cash only, so come prepared. Enjoy!

This gem in Rowley has a wonderful array of breakfast items. The food is fresh and well-prepared. The staff is very pleasant and efficient, and really made us feel welcome. The bathroom I used was slightly worn, but immaculate. Very clean and nicely decorated. Nice setting

Four of us for breakfast, 20 minute wait, not bad at all. Food was very good. Hash nice and crispy. Great breakfast omelette and pumpkin pancakes and biscuits. Extra points for having real maple syrup. Only down note was the coffee, sort of weak, declined a refill.

Tried this on our way to Rockport . Excellent restaurant . This was our first time. I got a waffle with whipped cream and toppings. You are supposed to pick one of the following Warmed apples with cinnamon, blueberries or strawberries. I asked if i could have a little of each. Stephanie was our waitress and was happy to oblige.... More
