I've tried many places for breakfast since I moved to Wallingford and keep coming back to this one. It's comfortable/casual, family run, and I've always had great service. I've never had lunch here, but have had several different things from their breakfast menu and enjoyed them all. FYI their pancakes are HUGE! They have some interesting daily specials too.

Went using a Groupon and loved our breakfast. Coffee first and refilled repeatedly as a good breakfast place should. Attentive staff. Terrific corned beef hash and tasty home fries. Eggs cooked as requested. Will definitely return.

The service has been getting slower and slower each time we dine here. They are remarkably disorganized for such a small restaurant. If the service were on point, they would improve wait times. The food is appropriate for the price, the wait staff is friendly enough. If you have an hour (or, on one occasion more than an hour) to... More

Right on Route 5 (Colony Road) this long time favorite is great for breakfast or lunch. Super friendly & accommodating staff are the icing on the cake. Food is great & prices can't be beat. The most amazing pancakes I have ever eaten- Go hungry!!!!

Great food for breakfast and lunch. The girls there are super nice. I love their specials and my son loves the stuffed French toast. It's a bit pricey and with a family of 6 it hits the wallet hard. So, good food but I don't make a habit of going there.

The moment you walk in the door you feel like you have been warped into a giant home kitchen. The atmosphere, staff and smell of the griddle food makes you feel at home. The coffee is always fresh and the staff make sure you never half empty. The portion are great to share or even have enough for a doggie... More

It was pretty packed when we arrived, but the bar had some room, so hubby and I sat there. I think it enhanced our appreciation of the meal. We chatted a bit with the very busy staff and nearby diners, getting some tips of what kind of pancakes to get (banana with chocolate chip & 1 is plenty) and seeing... More
