I visit semi-regularly for take out (and occasionally dine in). John and his staff always bring their "A" game. An asset to Hockessin.

We are Sunday morning regulars! Love this place! I always get the omelet and have special requirements as to how I want it cooked. They match my demands every single time! It’s friendly and fabulous. A hidden gem. :)

I was here for a quickbreast before a meeting at the Hockessin Library. This is in a shopping center with ample parking. I had a few minute wait as a table was just finishing. This is a busy place and I am guessing that wekkend...seating is at a premium plus they do a fair amount of takeout business. I ordered eggs over light, bacon and home fries. Eggs and bacon were cooked to order. I am sure that others enjoy the home fries which were more like potato chips but I prefer the more traditional. Service was pleasant and professional. The "kitchen" is in the open for all to see. Prices are reasonable.More

Quinn's Café is a delightful place for lunch with very good food and service. We had: • Santa Fe Chicken Salad - delicious. • Turkey Deli sandwich – excellent. o Side of homemade Cole Slaw – well prepared with great taste. • Shared bakery cookie...with sprinkles – very good. • Ice Tea to drink – perfect. Next time we are in the area we will have lunch at Quinn’s!! Try Quinn's.More

EXCELLENT service, great food and large portions. Small, neighborhood cafe that the locals love. Only open for breakfast and lunch but have a large menu to chose from.

Had breakfast with family at this rather small local eatery. the owner and employees were accommodating of special requests. The meal was very good and represented an outstanding value. This is not a place to linger, as on the weekends there is always a que.

This is our first time at Quinn's. It was an impulse decision after a morning of flower purchasing. We pulled into the parking lot with no problem. Plenty of seating with booths along the walls. We were able to get a seat immediately. The menu...offers breakfast and lunch on Sat/Sun up to 2pm. The service was good and the food was good - we tried a breakfast and lunch choice. The breakfast potatoes were interesting as they were delivered in chip form but closer to home fries - Interesting not what was expected.More

Quinns is a small cafe open for lunch and dinner. Locked in the Shoppes of Hockessin. Good choices for breakfast and lunch. Prepared quickly and served by friendly people, who, after you have been a few times, will "know your name". The owner, John Quinn...is there most of the time behind the counter thing care of business. Your coffee cup will never be empty at Quinns. Sometime on weekend mornings there is a little line for a table. The wait is worth it.More

Nothing special here. The owner is nice, as are the staff. The breakfast potatoes are inedible.....please grate the potatoes. Clean bathroom after passing by the stock shelves.

Quinns and Kims before has long been a go-to spot for us. The food has always been good. The service was a high point. This visit missed on both counts. The food wasn't warm. The service was slow to the point of having to ask...twice for things. Oddly, it wasn't busy either that day. A return visit will definitely be made to one of our favorite places. Hopefully, next time wil be better.More

Love going to Quinn's either for breakfast or lunch, such a warm and friendly place. Hockessin's own "Cheer's" where everybody knows your name!!!

I would like to give this a higher rating but the service was spotty and we had to seek out the servers on at least 2 occasions. The food was fine but not memorable.
