It's our first time here and it was fantastic. Our waitress, J.Stacks was one of the best we've ever had. Had omelettes and they were hot, fresh and delicious. Definitely coming back soon. It was very clean, everyone very friendly and fast service. Great job👍

A "found" stop south of Portland on route 1. Pleasant but unoriginal décor, perfectly acceptable but not outstanding food (omelet eggs a bit dry, hash good, sausage bland, coffee not very exciting), large portions, pleasant staff.More
