Food is okay, but not much better than a McDonald's breakfast. Not bad pancakes and omelets, but the home fries are terrible and the hash is dogfood. Also, the bread is store bought and most everything is frozen and canned including the "home made" beans. Drive a little further to the Littleton Diner, EVERYTHING is HOME MADE and the food... More

Good food and plenty of it. Most people choose breakfast over lunch. It can be very busy, so plan accordingly.

Awesome food, especially whoopie pies. Great homecooked food & well-stocked gift shop. Pancakes are delicious, coffee is great prices are reasonable, & service is awesome. Very friendly. Too bad they aren't open for dinner.

2/28/15 Food is good, BUT: The hostess thinks she is the only person that can do anything. Some people had to wait 20-30 min. to be seated, yet there were 2-4 empty tables.The hostess rode herd on the wait staff (there were only 2), cashed out the store and restaurant,cleared tables (there was a very capable person to do this)...

Stopped for a quick lunch & was pleasantly surprised! We both had chicken salad which was some of the best we have had! If passing in your travels definitely worth your patronage.

A little place on route 2 on the way to berlin...service was friendly and fast. Coffee was on the weak and tasteless side. Ham and cheese omelet was cooked properly and was very tasty. Prices are low and portions large here. Has a nice gift shop attached, too. Will definitely return!

A friend had mentioned this restaurant, so we went out of our way to visit it. If someone says that "it's near Santa's Village" don't take that too literally - it's quite a ways down the road! Our mistake. We were not disappointed however. We liked the comfortable old style of the tables with things to read at the table,... More
