Food wasnt all that great. We tried it twice but its bland with horrible waitress service. The inside is old and usually i love lil old breakfast/lunch places. But this is old, smells old, food is awful, and high priced.

We used to go here every Sunday but became tired of waiting for a seat and having breakfast in such a noisy atmosphere. The food is really good but the inside needs a complete makeover and needs some cleaning.

Top O' The Mornin' is like having breakfast at Grandma's house. It quaint, the food is made fresh to order, the service is great, and the prices were more than fare. Put this on your morning "I'm Hungry" list for sure!!!

Let's start with coffee, better than Dunkin Donuts. Their three egg omelet, built any way you want it, is outstanding, They do a very brisk take out business, coffee and egg sandwiches, so it does get very brisk if you are seated too close to the cash register. Plenty of seating and a good place to wake up to.

For several years I have enjoyed Hash in a Dash but when it is offered as a special the Biscuits and Gravy are the best I have ever had. Even better than any I have ever down South.

If breakfast is the most important meal of the day, this is one of the most important places to visit. A good family place with excellent food, my family and I have been regulars for more than ten years. Their breakfast specials are always worth trying and the corned beef hash is awesome. For lunch, you can't go wrong with... More

All the rave reviews of the hash, I had to order a side of it to try as my workplace put in an order. I received a burnt offering of hash remains for the price of $5. I guess I shouldn't complain about the tiny portion size for the price as I fear it would have been more charred offerings.... More

I like to try corned beef hash when I stop at a restaurant for breakfast. Luckily for me I even like that hash that comes out of a can, which most places choose to serve. But every now and then I hit a spot that actually makes their own - sometimes good and sometimes just so-so. The hash here is... More

If you are a fan of real corned beef hash this is the place to go. We moved from CT in 2000 and whenever we order hash at a restaurant we talk about how it is not as good as Top O' the Mornin. Never had a bad meal there.

Very good breakfast menu. with The exception of no home fries. (only hash browns). Breakfast is very large and comes with a free muffin. Place is a little outdated but one of the best breakfast joints in town. The breakfast menu offers a large variety. I am a large man and have trouble finishing my food. Good overall value.
