We grabbed breakfast here, my Parents used to go here all the time and loved it. I had the bacon, tomato and mozzarella omelet with home fries and wheat toast. There is a bottomless coffee cup-the servers are constantly rounding with it. The mushroom and cheese omelet was fluffy. Food was hot too! When we visited, it was very busy,... More

One of my favorite places to eat because the food is always consistently good. Waitresses are always friendly and efficient. The only difficult thing is the noise level during peak hours. Tough to carry on a conversation.

The food was very good. It is a very busy place and had to wait for a table but worth it. Once seated we didn't wait long for anything and everything was hot and yummy! My girls all enjoyed the meal.

Had lunch here today. Nothing fancy but really good home style food. New management is under Karen who used to be a waitperson here. Food is basically the same but place is gussied up a bit. Painted and new path into the place. Prices are average for this area. Will go back again.

We read the great reviews for this restaurant and decided to give it a try. We went there for a late breakfast and the restaurant was very busy. We ended up sitting at the counter to get faster service, and the menu was full of yummy-sounding options. For the most part, the food was great and the waitstaff was friendly.... More

Lobster Omelets, house made cornbeef hash with eggs benedict. More options than you can sample in an entire summer. A great place to take first time visitors to Cape Cod. We brought friends from South... More
