The service was excellent. The food was delicious I had the french toast with blueberries. I tried my daughters pancakes they were amazing, I would come back to Kittery just to dine here. Yummy

In the area around breakfast time? Do yourself a favor and head here. It's nothing fancy but about as local of a breakfast joint as you can hope to find. Lots of folks laughing, eating, playing cards, drinking coffee and joking with the server. Terrific food, including a nice variety of homemade breads. Wallet-friendly prices (even better because this is... More

Two ladies, Beana and Stephanie handled the diner trade in the morning. We noticed they had time to have a good word, or share a joke with customers, while still making sure the food was served quickly. There was an option of quick breads, such as banana bread, cranberry orange bread and others to be chosen instead of toast at... More

The people work hard and are so friendly. They had a list of 5 homemade breads on their chalkboard to pick from. We had the pumpkin and it was fresh and delicious. Both of us had egg dishes and all of our food was hot and eggs done perfect. Just a small hole in the wall place, but definitely a... More

We've bee to many, many area restaurants, and I left this one with only one thought; That was incredibly average. I had breakfast, and the wife had a 1/2 and 1/2 lunch combo. On the breakfast side, the omelette was clearly overstuffed and well made. Their home fries are essentially diced french fries, and their toast was missing a critical... More

We came in twice, once for lunch and for breakfast the next day. As we walked through the door, we were greeted by the hostess, Sabina, who was so friendly, welcoming and helpful. I immediately felt at home there. Our waitress same shortly thereafter and took our orders. She was very kind, friendly and attentive. I ordered the garden salad... More

Nice variety on the menu - very kid-friendly! The fruit bowl is huge and the kid mac-n-cheese was perfect!
