Great place for breakfast foods

Everything we ordered was good. Make sure to try the homemade toast. Most of us ordered omelets and everyone liked them. The homemade cinnamon roll was very good. I would suggest sharing though, it was huge.

Quaint old fashioned cafe in the heart of Holland. Food was first rate quality and generous portions. Homemade bread was a treat by itself. Prices were below what I would have expected.

This downtown restaurant is a great place for breakfast! They have a fantastic hash brown omelet that can feed two people!! We also had a homemade cinnamon roll (huge), so share that too!! Service is good and the line can go out the door.

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.
