“OK greasy spoon.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

The food is not bad for what it is, but the AC is often overworked and it's way understaffed when it's busy in the morning. Who wants to wait 45 minutes for bacon and eggs?

“Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

Located just south of the Marathon Airport, this is a local hole in the wall that the average visitor would not notice, yet there is always a full parking lot. This breakfast/lunch nook has been aroound for over 40 years, and if you ask a local, they know it well. The interior is unique, duh, wooden spoons and forks hanging all over the walls. The food is excellent and for one who wants to start their day off right, this is the place to go. Ample portions will never leave you hungry. Eggs Benedict is the signature dish, but then anything and everything is the best. It's a shame you can only eat but 1 meal at a time. It's kinda nice sitting and watching the regulars and locals intermix as well as the cook and waitresses. Great prices and great service should keep this place around for awhile!!

“The best breakfast in Marathon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

Sometime the waiting line it is a little longer, but wait for this breakfast it is justified. Just enjoy the fresh coffee, read the newspaper and wait for the food
