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

Very yummy breakfast with a white board full of specials to choose from. Endless cup of coffee. Wait staff exceptionally friendly and attentive. Really made us feel like regulars.

Food is good and plentiful. There were 4 of us for breakfast. We all ordered something different. The food arrived together and was hot. It was a pleasant experience from the moment we entered the door. A cheerful greeting. Excellent waitress and plenty of hot coffee. I highly recommend a visit here. 😃

We found this restaurant about 10 yrs ago while driving north on vacation in New Hampshire. Been back at any opportunity since, which unfortunately it has been a few years. Still no change in the quality or service. Everyone works hard in this restaurant including a woman who must be the "mom" and is still working hard as a senior... More

Decided to take my husband to Dad's for Father's Day. What a treat. The food was delicious and plentiful and even more importantly, the staff was welcoming, friendly and capable - even with every seat in the house occupied and many waiting to be seated. The atmosphere is great - everyone works together (including the owner) to be sure you... More

We eat lunch there 2-3 times a week . Barbara is not just a cook but a real "CHEF" and comes up with different foods every day. The waitresses are by far the best around.
