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

This has been our Sunday breakfast place for about 20 years. A friendly mom and pop place with pleasant staff and good coffee.

I met a friend there for lunch. You order at the counter and they bring it out to your table. The prices were right and the serving size was enjoyable. It is family friendly and no rush to hurry up and eat.

Real good small town breakfast and lunch place. Why go to Waffle House when you can enjoy the local place?

Classic small town cafe on busy Route 1 in Dumfries. Only serve breakfast and lunch. Hearty egg dishes and sandwiches. I had a Reuben sandwich with fries. Did not have the soup special, but my friend raves about their potato soup. Order the food at the counter and they bring your meal to you.

The food was great. I had the open face roast beef special. The food came quick even though I visited during their busy lunchtime service.
