Arrived at 7.05 am. Line by 7:20. Breakfast was great with real homemade Corned Beef hash and Amadama Bread. Service was good despite limited space. Well worth a visit.

We only had breakfast here but it was very good. We ordered a standard breakfast of bacon and eggs which came with really good home fries. Service was good and we enjoyed what we ordered. We left with a loaf of homemade bread as well.

Stopped in here for breakfast. Very small! Very warm inside and it was only around 9am. Got food to go. Thankfully we didn't go to far as they forgot our drinks. Food normal breakfast food.

As a local and unwilling to drive to Gloucester on a weekend due to the horrific beach traffic, I really want to like this place. I recently had breakfast, only two tables occupied and it took over 20 minutes for scrambled eggs, which would be fine but the eggs and rest of breakfast was well below average. Scrambled eggs were... More

Ate breakfast and enjoyed every minute. The new owners and staff are doing a great job and my breakfast was every bit as good as it was when I ate at the Skiff the last two years. It is always my first stop in Rockport. Great people and family type atmosphere.

On a recent trip to Rockport my hubby and I were taking our morning walk looking for a place for breakfast. Upon entering the diner we were greeted with "good morning!" from the wait staff. We were told we could sit wherever we like so we chose the bar with the view of the tiny kitchen. How they work in... More

Our family enjoyed this small, friendly spot and ordered clam chowder, lobster roll and fish and chips. Fast service provided by a friendly crew of hardworking women. We were on a bit of a schedule and we were in and out of there in a good amount of time on a very busy 4th of July weekend. Happy to have... More

Great food, attentive, friendly and hardworking crew. Who would want more? We had the omelettes and they were perfect.

First time we went there we loved it but couldn't remember what we ordered second time around when we had fish and chips. They were okay but not great. Breakfast (which a number of people were ordering) looked good.

Just a short walk from the town dock and yacht club, this little restaurant welcomes visiting sailors, tourists, and natives with great breakfast choices, delicious coffee, and a warm welcome. Four out of four of us enjoyed the hash with eggs cooked as requested. The hash was the BEST EVER: slow roasted brisket prepared on site was mouth watering and... More
