We had breakfast here. It was a very pleasant find. Decor reminds you of being back in the 1950's. (Pictures on walls, old table juke boxes, license plates, etc. The service was tops. The food was very good. Interesting menu. Cinnamon bun pancakes were great.

very down home made meals. the only thing missing was a working juke box. nothing too fancy, a super atmosphere. a very plain orders, but ask for items that you may expect to have with your meal. it reminds me of the silver dinner in arlington va.

Well was immediately impressed and did not know weather to have breakfast or lunch and the waitress gave me a great selection and it was a Benny Burger. This is eggs Benedict and a burger. This place is a must go.

We came here for breakfast this morning after reading the good reviews and were quite happy. There were six of us, and the place is kind of small so we split up into two tables, but we were perfectly happy. Our waiter was quick, friendly and knew his stuff. He got our drinks right away and answered our questions. The... More

This place came recommended to us and we weren't disappointed. It isn't a big place and we were probably lucky to be there off-season and could get a seat when we walked in.

Stopped for breakfast. Food was good. Staff was warm and friendly. But the one thing that I couldn't help but be grossed out by was the long hair on who I think was the owner. When we arrived she had it tied back but then took it out of the ponytail and I'm not sure if she realizes that it... More

Ate there for breakfast both mornings that we were at the Cape. Staff is friendly. Food was delicious. Service was quick and efficient. Love the way they have decorated the interior. Looking forward to going back when we travel to the Cape in the future.

excellent breakfast, great service, reminds me of an old school diner. Service is first rate and the food is like your your mom used to make. The best part of this diner is the positive energy running through the place, everyone is happy and upbeat.
