Very good

The salads we ordered were excellent. The steak burrito was not so good, I will not order it again since the potatoes which were listed were actually in the burrito. When you put potatoes in a steak burrito, you end up with less steak and cheese.

There are so many great options for breakfast and lunch here. Some of my favorites include, lobster Benedict, lobster roll, local duck sausages, cranberry foccacia bread and omelets. This is one of my favorite breakfast joints in down town North Conway. The food is so yummy, and they use a lot of local, natural products. I love sitting outside on... More

We were looking for a place for Breakfast and spotted this one traveling down the highway in town. The restaurant is up stairs and offers a great atmosphere, they offer an a very extensive menu and will fit any ones tastes. You won't be disappointed .

We had a late breakfast on the balcony with a beautiful view of the train and mountains. The food was great made with fresh ingredients. We each had something different and all were very happy. Definitely would come back here. Charming little place. Lots of healthy breakfast options too!

This is a must stop for breakfast whenever we're in North Conway. This was the first time we were lucky enough to get a seat on the balcony! An absolutely beautiful sunny morning. It's fairly small inside, so when we head back up with our 18 month old this summer, we will probably have to skip stopping here ( she's... More

The brioche bun was worth the price of admission...the stairway wrap was excellent though a large serving...service excellent, atmosphere cool and... More

A delightful, quirky restaurant located on the second floor of a building. It is a small restaurant, but we were there in off-season, so getting seated was not an issue. They include a variety of wild-game sausage on the menu, my husband enjoyed the elk sausage. The price is a bit high for breakfast, but the quality is high. If... More

We stopped for breakfast here after reading other reviews and so glad we did. Up the stairs you go, and then you'll find a cute, kinda quirky atmosphere. Dishes, napkins all unique and different and start your day off with a smile. I had banana walnut pancakes and husband had French toast and we shared a large bowl of fresh... More

I had been here previously with my girlfriends, but this morning I came with my husband. Now, mind you, this restaurant is quite small, so we came early to beat the crowds. The service was super friendly and quick. The food is always AMAZING. The décor is super-cozy and cute. Our favorite is the tiny old-fashioned milk bottles that they... More
