Too busy for servers and food was not like you read in the advertisement. Too small for comfort sitting.

This is a good little "Diner" type place. They have good coffee and breakfast. Try to make it there before 11am for their specials. If you had SOS up north and miss it... here it is. Cream Chipped Beef!! For a quick breakfast, go check out this place :)

Small, crowded and noisy. Service slow although we were there on Sunday morning. My husband had biscuits and gravy, and he is still feeling the effects, 6 hours later. My eggs didn't taste real, home fries water logged, toast small and dry, bacon okay but must have been a shortage. This is a local restaurant but, in our opinion, the... More

Stopped for breakfast and found they had a good selection for breakfast options. Prices seemed a little high for a place with a title like patches. Food was good and plentiful and service timely and professional.

Service was quick, and so was the food. Ordered one of the specials of the day. Two eggs, two bacon, two sausage, home fries and toast $6.95. Very good. The home... More

I travel through the Venice area often and invariably at some point in my trip I end up eating breakfast here, A good place for breakfast where many of the patrons are "locals"
