A quirky bright yellow place just over the bridge past the Cozy Corner on Route 7 North, this quasi-diner is always full of locals, welcomed by chef and staff as though all are family. This is another place that sustained me when marooned in Williamstown two years ago during and after Hurricane Sandy. Warmth of welcome then was even more... More

Three of us had breakfast here about 8:45 on a Friday. The bright yellow exterior on US-7 north of Williamstown is hard to miss. Service was a little slow, but pleasant. Kind of a country decor. The portion sizes for the 3-egg omelet and french toast seemed a little small (no sides included), but the “short stack” of buckwheat pancakes... More

You can't miss this place on route 7. It's bright yellow! There also aren't many places to choose for breakfast. Thankfully, the food was great and plentiful! I ordered blueberry pancakes, full stack, and there were 3 the size of a dinner plate! So unless you're starving, order the short stack! The second day I got their two egg special... More

This is a don't miss spot for breakfast in the area. Wide variety and we tried some of everything in our group. Generous servings, reasonable prices and friendly, attentive service. Would definitely go again if ever in the area.

Staying next door at the Villager Motel and came over for breakfast. We got just the basics eggs, sausage, toast. Saw a huge plate of hash-browns on a table next to us and thought - hmmm - might be too much. The waitress saw me and said "Can I get you a half serving?" YES! Excellent. Ended up with the... More

Despite the seemingly full parking lot, our party of three was seated immediately by a cheerful gentleman who greeted us warmly. Our beverage order was taken at that time and the beverages arrived within seconds. An enthusiactic waitress answered our questions including a realistic assessment of the turnip muffin and took our order. We ordered a variety of dishes including... More

Had lunch here and it was just ok. Nothing special. Salad was very plain. Iceberg lettuce and some tomato slices. Would not go back

They even have a food challenge if you eat the whole plate within 30 minutes you get a free meal and a shirt with your picture on the wall. Wonderful food and... More

My husband and I have just returned from Italy and he wanted an American breakfast. We went to the Chef's Hat in Williamstown which we had enjoyed at other times. It was very crowded but a table was available for us. My husband ordered the 2+2+2 which included 2 buttermilk pancakes, 2 eggs, he chose scrambled, and bacon instead of... More
