The Best Breakfast Ever!

I had the curry shrimp omelette: lots of shrimp, fresh tomato, mushrooms, etc., covered in a mild yellow curry hollandase sauce. My wife had the Monte Christo: ham & cheese over apples, in a sandwich made with two sweet crunchy bread slices. She covered it with maple flavored syrup. Both our dishes... read more

I have been happy in the past to eat wonderful breakfasts here. But this time was distinctly average at best. Maybe they are not trying so hard any more. I had the daily special, an omelet with mushrooms and sausage, with a side of fried potatoes and toast. The potatoes were underdone, without the caramelized crustiness that makes home fries....

Great place to eat, I love their breakfast. Only drawback is it is a small restaurant and sometimes there is a wait. I think that speaks to how good their food is. Service staff is always on top of things.

My wife & I stopped in about 12:30 on a Saturday afternoon. Wasn't impressed with the hostess' initial greeting - "How many?" Granted they were busy. And I know why! The "My Favorite Omelette" in now one of mine. That along with some nicely crisped, chunky home frys, I had more than enough. My wife had their Bacon Burger which... More

Tasty food but someone was eating my toast before me. The server didn't seem at all bothered by the bite out of my food. I was put off and would have liked at least a coffee on the house. Will not return.

This is a tiny dining room with some interesting décor. The food was good and the coffee kept coming. I had a chorizo dish recommended by our waitress. It was good but a little under seasoned. I couldn't really taste the chorizo. My friend liked their as well. The place could use an update inside. The painted landscapes looked like... More

My husband always said when there is a line outside to get in then that's the place to eat. It is worth the 15 to sometimes 30 minute wait to get a seat. Atmosphere is very friendly and the food is home cooked portions. The down side might be the lack of space but I believe it is what makes... More

Oh my goodness is this good food or WHAT?? We love this place, the food is very, very good! Service pretty fast, very friendly. They keep the coffee cup filled, but......they have crammed so many tables, so close together that you can almost taste the food on the table next to you! If you pull your chair out a tiny... More

Loved this little eclectic place. First time to eat there, and definitely not the last. while chairs and tables are mismatched, atmosphere is fun and comfortable. Very busy during the noon hour in downtown Salem, WE just had sandwiches and soup, but food presentation was lovely, and very delicious.
