Great Breakfast & Lunch

The best breakfast place downtown in Holland, but get there early as it gets busy quick, especially on the weekends. Fast friendly service, good prices, large portions.

You want a down home real meal? This is the place... Where the locals eat and eat and eat. Make sure you get the homemade toast.

Best Breakfast Joint in town, but don't expect much more than good down home cooking. The service is friendly, the coffee is bad, and they expect cash.

I took my young daughter as a special treat. I stood in line for a while to add our name to the wait list. The line never moved. We finally figured out that you just wait in line until you are next. I thought all others were registered so now had to go to the back of a much longer... More

Don't let the line out the door deter you. It goes fast. The staff is very friendly and calm even though the place was jammed. We had the birds nest - eggs/bacon on top of hash browns, the veggie omelet and cinnamon roll! We had to bring the cinnamon roll home- it was huge!

A small place on the main drag, the line was long for good reason, it was delicious! So much I couldn't eat it all, love the mom and pop type eateries.

I had the 3 Star burger with fries, my hubby had the double cheeseburger with fries, and they were cooked perfectly and so good. The fries were also perfect. All the food was served HOT. The Rasberry Ice Tea was also very good. Service was excellent. Very reasonably priced. Our bill was less than $20.00!!!!!
