Everyone there was really nice to our child, and the food was superb. We recommend the blueberry pancakes and the hot chocolate. A friendly place that seemed to have a 'locals' flavor but was equally welcoming to us.

Had a wonderful breakfast at this place. The service was excellent. The owner greets you like you are a regular. There is absolutely nothing bad to say about this restaurant. Don't forget to get a turnip muffin!!

Good old fashioned American breakfast and lunch offerings. Fast and friendly service makes it even better. Nothing fancy but you can't go wrong with anything on the menu.

In town for the weekend and well aware of the pathetic breakfast our motel offers, we went looking for something tast...buckwheat pancakes for me and eggs, beef hash and toast for my husband. Juice and coffee made it complete. Food was not top shelf by any means, but it was just what we were looking for...good old home style fare,... More

I had what was advertised as Texas toast French toast and the waitress even showed me with her fingers how thick it was (1”). It turned out to be regular bread and was a huge disappointment, with no apologies given. My companion had eggs over easy which were done correctly, but he didn't care for the hash browns.

Just what you want for a real salt of the earth breakfast and Waffle House scares you away. Only major fights recently in our household flow from your reviewer insisting on this property and my spouse insisting on something better - impossible in Williamstown - hardly a restaurant mecca.

Not fancy, rather a relaxed atmosphere with good tasting food. The wait staff was friendly, helpful, and efficient.
