A favorite of college students in Salem. Fun, quirky, converted house atmosphere. Good food too. Arrive with extra time to wait.

Went to WOM as they call it on a busy Saturday morning. We were prepared to wait as my coworkers had already warned me that it is very popular. Arrived at 7:45, were seated at 8:15 and food arrived at 8:25! My husband will eat anything, I am the super picky foodie. I was impressed with the food! Very well... More

A group of 7 early morning swimmers sent a waiting scout at 6:40 am one summer Friday. He was last to get a table for us, which means there were people waiting for at least 30 + minutes at 7 am. Breakfast menu was quite interesting, food and service was excellent, however I felt we were somewhat crowded. There seems... More

This place is always hopping, but the service is great and the veggie hash (add feta!) is out of this world.

The parking lot sucks and you will grow irritated as you're forced to wait upwards of two hours to eat some days but it is so worth it. The service is always amazing and everything on the menu is perfect. You must try it!

Wonderful breakfast spot! Super-popular. You WILL WAIT on a weekend. Impossible parking. Feels like eating in someone's home. I've never had anything I didn't like. Good location near downtown. Go early or don't go. Slightly overpriced for breakfast food.

This place has a loyal following. Parking is always a problem and generally there is a line of people waiting to get in. The food is good but the noise level tends to be high.

Word of Mouth has a history and a Urban Spoon rating. We had breakfast on a Sat. morning and the wait was almost an hour. The breakfast dishes have interesting names and are so loaded they almost fall off the plate. One of those places where you feel badly just ordering an egg and bacon. We had five different entrees...
