A tiny place by the tracks but what a treat. Breakfast is my favorite meal and this is the place to get it. The quality of the food is top notch and it never disappoints. A great menu and everything is prepared nicely.

I went to the restaurant and I had a very average experience. The server was just okay. The food was mediocre, and the pricing was forgettable.

Cappa's is like eating at you family's house...with strangers. All the plates and mugs are mismatched in a charming way. The food is huge portions. Your coffee is,always filled. You can walk across from the commuter rail or from downtown.

We had a great breakfast here. Last time we came we were a bit disappointed, but things seem back to their high standards, Pancakes were large and delicious. Coffee was tasty and hot. Service was good. We'll be back!

This is a great place for families to have breakfast or lunch. The breakfasts are so awesome and the very generous portions for an extremely great value. You haven't had a nice affordable breakfast until you've tried Cappa's Trackside Kitchen. A very nice family run...More

This is a cute, small place with mismatched mugs and amazing breakfast options. The pancakes are amazing and the home fries are as well
