The lovely restaurant was buzzing when we arrived. We were seated promptly. The place is filled with eclectic antiques and funky artwork. It is obvious the owner loves food, good surroundings and is quite creative. Although Andrea, our waitress, was really busy, she brought us our drinks right away and made sure we saw the specials board. I chose the... More

We wished we had found this place sooner as we had the best breakfast of our trip. We enjoyed omelets which were were generously portioned and fresh. Quality ingredients and fresh food are worth a few extra dollars in my opinion. We were there on a Monday morning and we had the place to ourselves. It probably would be crowded... More

This was a great lunch spot with friendly service and delicious food. The decor is cozy and welcoming. A fun spot to get away from the busy street. The only negative was the bathroom situation. There is only one, shared (unisex) toilet. The line was so long that people were lined up through the eating space, which made it cramped... More

Great food and service. Very small place but cozy. I love the homemade corned beef hash and delicious blueberry pancakes.

I was Christmas shopping by myself on a weekday in December, couldn't stop for lunch until 2 pm, and wanted to try something new in North Conway (I've been there many times, and always end up eating at one of a few places with my young family). I saw excellent ratings on Trip Advisor for this restaurant, and it is... More

I was Christmas shopping alone and would normally have settled for fast food, since it's just easier. I decided to check this place out. Very glad I did! Prompt and friendly service, lots of yummy sounding dishes on the menu.It was hard to choose. I love lobster rolls so that is what I decided to have. It was one of... More

Went here for breakfast, so happy I did! Awesome food, I had the cranberry focaccia French toast with a side of home fries. They had a great selection of teas, usually breakfast places only have earl grey or black. The place has the coolest decorations, it's an eclectic mix of down home country decor and a bit of rock and... More
