GREAT COMFORT FOOD IN LARGE QUANTITIES

This was an experience. It is just a simple restaurant with excellent food, great service and prices that are unbelievably low. We all had different orders and every one of them was just great. Service was fast and it was crowded on a Sunday morning. We recommend it without reservation. Just... read more

Honestly...the service was wonderful and our waitress was outstanding. The food was good, the banana pecan pancake was delicious! I say it was ok because it was just not the cleanest feeling place. The bathroom was gross which made me question the kitchen. I don't really care if the building on the outside looks questionable but I want the inside... More

I have eaten at this restaurant over a dozen times in the past year. The master cooks, Michael and Torie, can whip up the best breakfast in the Williamsburg area. Eggs done any way you like, generous serving of crispy bacon, excellent biscuits (or try a fluffy pancake as a substitute), and home fries. The service is quick and friendly.... More

Agree that the food is pretty good, but it's not out of the ordinary. Service and ambiance are sub par so not sure what others see here that' so great. It's really not.

Love this spot for breakfast. The banana pecan pancake is fantastic along with the link sausage. My daughter loves the biscuits and gravy. Be prepared to wait outside but it's worth it!

Our family visited there on valentines day for lunch. We took my aged mother whom ordered an omlet and toast. The toast was burnt and she could not chew it, she sent it back.. Still burnt the second time around. My omlet was prepared with the wrong ingredients. My mother voiced her complaint to the cashier while the server stood... More

We stopped here because our normal breakfast spot was closed. The food was pretty good and reasonably priced. I didn't fall head over heels in love with it though. The service was prompt and mostly courteous.
