We make sure to come here whenever we're in the Berkshires. We love the fresh baked muffins, especially the turnip muffins! I know it sounds gross, but you have to try one.

Wonderful breakfast at a local's favorite diner. Friendly staff and great service. The eggs were cooked exactly as ordered and the breakfast potatoes were fresh and tasty. Will visit this diner again!

We looked for a quick breakfast, and this came highly recommended, and appropriately so! Very plain for tables and chairs, but still bustling in after semester season; creating its own type of ambience. Lots of locals, usually an exellent sign. We found a huge breakfast menu, and very friendly and helpful staff. I ordered a Mexican omelette, but the others... More

Had brunch with family here. Great prices and good food. No frills which we appreciated. Family members all enjoyed their food though the soup was "just ok."

Everyone there was really nice to our child, and the food was superb. We recommend the blueberry pancakes and the hot chocolate. A friendly place that seemed to have a 'locals' flavor but was equally welcoming to us.

Had a wonderful breakfast at this place. The service was excellent. The owner greets you like you are a regular. There is absolutely nothing bad to say about this restaurant. Don't forget to get a turnip muffin!!

Good old fashioned American breakfast and lunch offerings. Fast and friendly service makes it even better. Nothing fancy but you can't go wrong with anything on the menu.
