Don't let the small blue building fool you. Step inside for reasonable omlettes and home baked goods. This is a mother and son operation. Steve entertains by balancing four cups of coffee in one hand and has you smiling before your order is even taken. One table is covered with mom's creations... read more

Like eating at moms but better. Baked goods can not be beat. After your good home cooked meal make sure you leave room for the best desserts!

This is a small local restaurant right on the main street through Port Isabel. We stopped for lunch and had no problem getting a seat. The waitress was cordial and prompt. We ordered the chicken fried chicken. I was expecting something meatier. It was a very thin piece of chicken that lacked any flavor other than deep fried flavor. In... More

We had grilled haddock and the world famous chicken pot pie for lunch. Both were excellent and without a doubt one of the best lunches we have ever had. Everything was perfect! Steve is the greatest, too, with his easy-going, friendly manner. Highly recommended.

Delicious homemade food. Chicken pot pies, chicken and dumplings, Thanksgiving dinner, burgers, fish, meatloaf, banana split pie - we have tried it all. Lunches come with a little salad and dessert. Not sure why the dinners don't but you are usually so stuffed it doesn't make a difference. Steven, the server is entertaining. A tidbit about this place, On Thanksgiving,... More

The lunch specials are a great value, usually $6.95 for entree, small salad, ice tea and dessert. All baked goods are homemade. Go on Wednesday for Chicken and Dumplings or Thursday for Chicken Pot Pie. Great breakfast deals too! We had the omelet special for $3.95. Take note it is an older cafe that has been not updated in decades.... More

We stopped in on the way home for some breakfast. The server was excellent, never had to ask for a refill. He entertained everyone in the restaurant made everyone's visit enjoyable. This business is set up for success. Great job, I'll be back.

This restaurant is owned and run by a man who knows how to make good food. Add to that, he has personality galore. The staff is attentive and the experience is down home. Don't go here for the ambience. The place is tiny with limited parking. It is worth your while.
