Yes, your good basic breakfast with some good parking and service. Hey breakfast is breakfast, at least 10 places in the county with same menu and price, but nice to have a local spot.

We ordered crunchy well done potatoes. We got them!! Owned by mother and daughter team. Has been there forever. Nice comfy breakfast place. Standard old fashioned American breakfast items. It's like coming home!

One of the best breakfast. Very small restaurant, but was worth the 15 minute wait. The pancakes, eggs, and bacon had me stuffed. Good portions for what you pay. Serve was great.

This small little gem brings back feelings of old school diner life. The waitress was friendly and effectively fast. The food was great priced for the quality and portions. I recommend this highly for families looking to grab a good bite to eat!

Wanted to get some breakfast in Caoitola but there was no where to go park so we decided to try The Cook House. Haven't been there in years. Still the same! Cute old style coffee house that serves standard faire. French toast hit the spot,...More

Packed on a Sunday AM. Breakfast icon! My pancakes and medium poached egg breakfast was excellent! Owner is very nice, knows the majority of the guests and is there all the time! The local crowd. Sit by the oldfashioned counter and see your breakfast appear!...More

Good old fashioned breakfast location. You may have to wait on a weekend morning. Also often have smell of oil on clothes after visiting (ventilation?).
