Best place I've ever eaten. Haven't found anything that compares since I found this gem. Homemade food. Everything homemade from fried potatoes to English muffins and jam. Super friendly service. Exceptionally reasonable prices. Better than my mother made.

I grabbed breakfast here before hitting the highway coming and going between Oregon/California and back East someplace, on vacation. I was blown away by the exceptional customer service and fresh made food and pastries. Biscuits and gravy were by far best I have ever had on a road trip or even at Grandma's house back home. The locals know it... More

If you like an awesome breakfast in a kind of local campy place you will love this. Every breakfast I've had is amazing. Please order toast with the homemade jams, you can't go wrong.

Just like it was when you were growing up. Large portions with great tasting meals. Good for whole family. Only serve breakfast and noon luncheons.

Worth the wait and short drive from the freeway. Lots of locals there on Labor Day. Delicious biscuits and jam. Waited a bit for fresh gravy. Totally worth it. Fabulous kids menu. Kind staff. Awesome!

Great service! great food! Go early or expect a wait! If you decide to become a regular the waitresses will remember you, you aren't just another ticket.

Worth the wait to enter, and allows plenty of time to chat or plan your next day's activities while waiting for them to cook their great food. Allow time to enjoy. The Basque sausage breakfast is especially good.

We never would have found this amazing local restaurant without TripAdvisor. Coffee =excellent. Sunnyside up eggs perfect. Omlet = great. Basque style chorizo and eggs were incredible all mixed up together. Scratch biscuits with scratch peach jam = OMG! A must have breakfast stop for anyone passing through Twin Falls.

This is THE place to have breakfast in Twin Falls. I was there with the locals and Lindsey, my waitress, treated me like I was part of the family. She was SUPERB. Never was my coffee cup less then half full and she helped me order what could not be missed. The one downfall was the biscuit. I found it... More
