The best breakfast place in town

This place is a hometown jewel. Food is good, inexpensive, and it comes out fast. Coffee is great. There's often a line out the door, because so many people love this place.I wish they'd expand, adding more tables, etc.

We wondered around this beautiful little town and had to find a place to eat a good breakfast. The tummy radar worked great because this was just what we needed. Good food, great prices. Obviously the locals think so too as the tables stay full!

The reviews noticed us, the wait expected for a Sunday, but the food was great, hot and pretty quick. Definitely with the stop.

Three of us went there for breakfast on a Sunday morning. As others have noted there was a walt, but they seem to move people through at a pretty good pace. It's esentially a diner, so it's crowded and a bit noisy. Service was excellent considering the crowd. There were several coffee refils offered. My wife had a Greek omelette... More

After a change of ownership, this diner has unfortunately gone down in food and service quality while the prices have escalated. The omelettes are well made, but on my last few visits after coming here for about 20 years, the food is not presented well and other items were only fair. The building, an antique, restored railroad station, is very... More

Do not expect a quiet, genteel atmosphere but do expect a diner-like experience with quick service, generous and tasty omelettes. Parking is adjacent, but limited. They create a wide-variety of omelettes, all good, all filling and all reasonably priced.

I like this place a lot. Great breakfast spot. But the waits got so long that I started going elsewhere. I would recommend it for the food, but it's not very relaxing; it's crowded; and the waits are enough to send you elsewhere.

Relying upon nothing but our GPS to find a place for breakfast, we stumbled across Omelette Headquaters and found it outstanding. My wife had something we had never even heard of. Instead of Eggs Benedict, she had a marvelous Crab Cakes Benedict. It included two small but very tasty crab cakes. I ordered a Smoked Salmon Omellette, expecting no more... More

The Omelette Headquarters is fantastic! It's seat yourself, staff is friendly, but the place is super busy, especially on weekends. But if you don't mind waiting, it's all worth it. Fluffy, soft omelettes with dozens of fillings to chose from. They do have pancakes, french toast, fruit, etc but omelettes are (obviously from the name) their thing. Very reasonably priced... More
