This has to be one of the best breakfast restaurants in the state! We enjoyed their breakfast for three morning in a row during our trip to Petoskey. The staff was very friendly and the food was great. Would recommend any of the omelets or anything else, just a real nice place. Would definitely be back on our next trip... More

Portion size was nice. Restaraunt was very, very old and had very, very dated decor. Staff was nice and restroom was clean. If in the area, I would eat there... More

This is a good family diner. The offer all 3 meals. We were there for breakfast. They have a nice variety. They have the best raisin toast anywhere. I enjoy that they offer flavored coffee creamers. They are located near a number of hotels. It got really busy after 9:00 on the Sunday morning we were there

Lots of things to choose form on the menu. Service was a little slow, but friendly. Food was filling and no issues, just not spectacular.

This place is great for breakfast. Great service, great food. Not a fancy place, just a local, hometown restaurant. I enjoy eating here ever year when visiting Up North.

Stop here every once and a while. They are one reliable spot in Petoskey we can count on. Went there last week after attending the county fair. As always food and service were spot on. We have over the last couple years tried many different items and all were very good. Plus they serve breakfast any time of day.

Stopped in for breakfast before leaving Petoskey and we were glad we did! Great service, friendly and helpful, and the food was perfect. My Greek omelet was excellent (and I am picky on my omelets). We will eat here again when we are in town.

Thank Janet B
