“This place has gone down hill over the years.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2008

Being a local it's nice to go to a place that you walk to and sit right down. I've been to this place several times. It's gradually been going down hill. Unfortunately there's definitely a reason why you find a seat so easily. It seems like there previous waitresses had left. The service was terrible, the waitress was unnattentive. She took our order the food arrived and she never came back. We had to keep calling over to her for service.
We asked for things and never received them.
The food did not come out the way I ordered it. They just don't seem to care about there business anymore.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2008

Portuguese Sailor Sandwiches.
Perhaps the Greatest Breakfast Food EVER invented.
2 Thick slabs of Sweet portuguese bread carmelized on a hot grill. Inside is a slab of delicious chorizo sausage and an egg covered in hot melted cheese. This SANDWICH is quite possibly the greatest hangover cure mankind could come up with. When you take a bite the grease just drips down your chin, your eyes roll up into the back of your head, and for that one moment, you realize true rapture.
It ALONE is reason enough to drive all the way to newport.

“Yummy food - service questionable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2007

We asked a local for their favorite breakfast spot and were told us this place. The food was great - Eggs Benedict and Crow's Nest (Eggs benedict with corned beef hash instead of ham) but the service was whacky - All 5 of us asked for water - many times - and when it finally came - it was one glass! Food was great - atmosphere is nil - but I'd go back!
