We ate here three out of 4 days ( they are closed on Tuesdays) for breakfast. The migas are the best I've had in the US. Huge portions, real maple syrup available, good coffee. They really do make everything there. Go.

The food was decent, diner ambiance. I wish there were more options for the eggs Benedict (biscuit vs toast) but on the whole the meal was enjoyable. Wish the homefries were crispier.

We visit family in Rockland often and always make a point to have breakfast here. The food is awesome no matter what you choose from the menu, but the Sinny buns are the best.

Very friendly and good food, what more can you ask? We opted for the Home Kitchen based upon Trip Advisor and were very pleased with our choice. The omelets are very light and the optional ham was excellent but it was very light on the cheese as well which is why the 4 stars.

This restaurant was a short distance from our Inn and the food was delicious and plentiful. We stopped for breakfast before we started our touristy agenda. We started by ordering their famous sticky bun which was incredible, yummy and chewy on top. My husband ordered a breakfast sandwich and it was very large. It appeared as if there were two... More

We eat breakfast every year we visit Rockland, often several times. We always have a great experience. The food is excellent and the service is exceptional. Its always fun and worth waiting if you have to. Its very popular but the tables turn over quickly and don't hesitate to sit at the counter. Everybody works real hard for getting the... More

Of course, the folks at this friendly cafe are incredibly nice. My fish tacos were delicious - my husband kept trying to take them from my plate. Needless to say, the fish is super fresh local melt in your mouth. We literally went back again for round two the next day. I heard other diners raving about the eggs- delivered... More

Interesting menu, lots of variety. I had mac and cheese which was dry but flavorful. My wife's grilled cheese with tomato and avocado looked delicious and is a fav of hers. The place is crowded and very noisy, service is slower than would be expected.

A must stop and linger here. Our last leaf peeping dining stop and again a winner. A very short 15 minute wait and we sat at the counter. An extensive menu and you can even get the lunch items for breakfast. I went with one of their “sinnie’s” to start followed by the irish bennie with corned beef hash (excellent... More
