Visited twice this weekend while we were in town and both days the food was good along with the service. The only thing that we didn’t like was we weren’t allowed to put a table together because there was 6 of us and their large...table was already taken. We were given two excuses and neither made any sense so our two girls had to sit by themselves.More

A small breakfast and lunch joint located in Bellaire. I've meant to try them out for years. Thanks to Front Porch in Ellsworth no longer serving breakfast after 11am we needed a new restaurant to try.  They have 2 rooms, 1 with 3 tables and...the other has 5 or 6. So a small place. There's some old lunch boxes in the window, hence the name. We went twice the 1st time I got scrambled eggs, kielbasa, and toast ($9).  The 2nd time I got Oatmeal ($4.50-sm/$6.50-lg), and toast ($2). Both meals were excellent. Kielbasa for breakfast is fun. The toast while not homemade is excellent. The oatmeal was great, I should have gotten the large. The person I was with got a cheese and onion omelette and toast ($8). It was stated to be very good. The service was very good and served with a smile. Overall a 5 star review. Would I return? Absolutely, next years vacation it will be the #1 brunch spot. Their sandwiches look good too.More

The food is good and fulfilling. I ordered the 2 eggs, ham, potatoes, & toast. The potatoes were cooked right and delicious. I meant to try a pancake. The owner (I assume) seems a little snappy, but I’m suspecting it’s just her personality as I...watched her interact with others. The other patrons were pleasant. I would try this place again because of the good food.More

My sister told us about this place, so we gave it a try and were NOT disappointed! The service was friendly and fast, and the food was excellent! I enjoyed a 3-egg omelette and hubby enjoyed the Classic Eggs Benedict. The slices of ham were...so large, you couldn't see the muffin underneath. He said the ham was very moist and delicious, not dry like some places serve. Friends enjoyed the Country-Style Eggs Benedict, which had a potato cake rather than a muffin, sausage rather than ham, and sausage gravy, rather than hollandaise sauce.More

If I could leave 0 stars I would. Staff is incredibly rude. I went there with my family for breakfast and we wanted to sit outside. There are two tables outside to which we were told we could not combine due to city rules. We...were also told we could not add a chair to the table due to city rules and owner rules. Ok, that's fine. We went inside to see if we needed to place our order inside or if a server would come out. The server (assuming owner's sister) rudely said, "WE'VE ALL HAD OUR SHOTS!" If you have seats outside, let your patrons sit out there and don't be rude. Needless to say we left and will never return.More

We had eaten on a prior visit for breakfast. Finding other lunch restaurants closed on Tuesday, we popped into the lunch box. They are still honoring distancing for diners so they have seating spread out in the two dining areas. Our waitress was enthusiastic, new...the menu and efficient. Opting to provide social distancing the restaurant looks bit spread out. Our lunches of a BLT and their chicken sandwich special were each very good. The enthusiasm of our waitress added to the fun of our lunch.More

On a color tour of the area we came upon a quaint town, Bellaire. Found the nice family restaurant. We had breakfast with a 3 egg omelet made how we wanted. They serve breakfast all day! Great tasting food. The service was awesome!! We will...come again!More

Most professional and courteous. Great service and pretty damn good menu. Also... a young couple entered the restaurant and tried to create a scene as the woman insisted she would not wear a mask re medical reasons. The manager was very nice and share how...she must mask up. The woman became hysterical and it became obvious that her arrival was "stages, trying to cause problems where there should not be any!!!" This young woman was a jerk and a trouble maker. The restaurant manager was most diplomatic as the young women became crazy and tried to elevate this to an issue where it should not have been. . Another customer and I intervened supporting the manager and told the lady to leave. She insisted that she would call the police and we suggested she walk across the street and see the sheriff! We believe this incident was staged. The restaurant owner did not act unprofessional or inconsiderate whatsoever! Great Restaurant in Bellaire...- take your friends!!!!More

The breakfasts are outstanding. Tast is great and variety of the menu is very good. Sandwiches at lunch are very good but somewhat on the pricey side.

Our first morning in the area we thought it was the only breakfast place in town but we later found two more. The service was slow but it was because they only had on server and were quite busy. She was hustling. The food was...good, not great and the pricing was very appropriate.More

I believe this restaurant is the only breakfast place in Bellaire. We could have gone to McDonalds but we decided to try this place out. The service was rather slow but not to bad. The menu looked good but what we ordered was so so....If we were in town longer we might of gone back to try something else.More
