Although it has been a while since eating there I been going for over 10 years, It is a small place with very good home cooked style food. I wish my work schedule would change so I can eat there again.

I haven't been here in over 2 years because I once thought they were ho-hum. Today however we enjoyed our breakfast a lot. You serve yourself coffee and no waitstaff come around but the patrons are very friendly.

My breakfast meal was okay, but way too expensive for what I got. Almost any restaurant that sells breakfast does it as well or better for less.

This is a great place for breakfast or lunch. They close at 2pm. Every item in the menu is well prepared and yes, they have scrapple! Great value for your money.

We saw this restaurant which looked like a great mom & pop type. We were very excited to have a good home cooked breakfast while on vacation. The people there are very nice! When we ordered we were told if we didn't like our meal, we didn't have to pay. We ordered omlettes and were disappointed. They don't use enough... More

Have always had good service and a good breakie when we moved to Dumfries 2 years ago. My only complaint is the sign that says "please add your tip to the slip at register" is on the wall BEHIND the cashier. Several times we forgot to add the tip because in 29 years of being a bartender I've NEVER seen... More

We stopped for breakfast after saying so many times "we need to try it." We weren't disappointed. We just had the standard eggs and bacon and both were cooked just right! The service can be a little sketchy when needing a drink refill but please don't let this stop you from eating there. We will go back again.

Breakfast is really good. Fried Ham can be good but the taste-quality are not consistent. Hamburgers are good in summer when tomatoes are in season. Waitresses refilled some customer drinks but ignored others so they had to get up and go to the counter to get their refill, I thought that interesting. They close at 2:00 pm so don't go... More
