We were in Raleigh with family this past weekend and my stepson suggested Finch's restaurant. One of the best breakfasts I've had. True diner atmosphere, great prices/value, and friendly efficient staff. I'm told they have great food throughout the day too. Will try again when we're back in Raleigh. They may be moving in the next couple of years due... More

This is a Raleigh institution. The breakfast is the best and has everything imaginable on the menu. They are open early and have great friendly service. This is well worth the visit whether you live in Raleigh or visiting. Nothing fancy as all, just good food.

This place is always crowded at lunch and with good reason. The food and service is excellent. You just walk in and find a seat for yourself and have at it! It's nothing fancy at all but they aim to please. I love this place and have been there many times.

This place is definitely a hole in the wall. It was completely full of customers and you can tell they know their locals. We had to wait to be seated, not too long. After we ordered we had to wait almost an hour. I don't mind a hole in the wall with good food, and their food was good. They... More

I finally visited this location after wanting to many years. I had heard about it from the old timers and had also passed it on Peace Street on way too many occasions to count. My boyfriend and I went for the breakfast on a Saturday morning. We were able to secure a parking spot without too much trouble as the... More

This landmark restaurant won't be her much longer so go enjoy a delicious burger. $3.50 for a big burger w/all fixings. It is so good, when you finish you will want another. NO kidding. They are known for breakfast, but I eat the burgers there at 7am. Live on edge and have a burger in the morning.

Went here for breakfast as the place has been open almost 70 years, so it must be good, right? Well, it was a typical greasy spoon breakfast. The biscuits were cold and the grits were runny. Everything else was okay. What can I say, it filled us up. The service was alright, but the owner kept me waiting in line... More
