“Downtown Holland's Best Breakfast Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Recent breakfast included two delicious Greek omelettes that came in a very timely way, with accompanying rye toast, buttered. The omelettes were sizable, hot and very good, as was the service. The staff provided great service, answered questions and provided the bill in a timely way.

Decor is a bit outdated, but adds to the character of the restaurant. Located downtown on 8th Street, just before the River Ave. intersection, on the south side of the street.

“Cheap Prices”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013 via mobile

Good value for being right downtown. I think it could be renovated and updated. The food was average. I had pancakes and they were burnt. Not sure why it is ranked as high as it is. It was okay, but nothing great.

“A Good Breakfast.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

EARLY on a Monday morning. Coffee came right away, cup stayed full. We weren't bugged to order, but she seemed to be there right when we were ready. Food came quickly, omelets were good, not spectacular, but good. Toast was homemade, very thick, and done to order. It was a good meal, I was satisfied and I think you will be too.

“Can you top perfect?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

Had breakfast there today after my husband found the place on yelp. Holy cow! Someone in line recommended we get a cinnamon roll which we did for the table. Awesome! The pancakes are from scratch, you can tell and the hash brown omelette my husband got looked divine. The service was cheerful and very prompt. I would prefer real half and half rather than the little prepackaged kind, but this is a small complaint. We would visit again, and often, if we lived anywhere near the area.

“Fantastic breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

I don't know what they put in that sausage but it is so good. Their homemade toast is great too. We spent about 18 dollars and ended up taking a bit home for a second meal later in the day.
