The place has excellent food and is a jem!! My wife and I got caught in an October snow storm and was recommended this place from our hotel, and we are glad we went! Parking is a challenge but once inside there is not a bad thing on the menu. The decor is unique and favors the cat lover, hence... More

The best clam chowder on Fridays. Interesting decor accompanied by great waitress names that add to the cheer. Good breakfast. Fair prices. Friendly staff.

We have only had breakfast, but they also serve lunch. The special always comes with cornbread and blueberries, which is very good. We also like the banana bread French toast. For entree's we have had Popeye, BLT and Greek, to name a few. We have been coming here for several years and highly recommend you try it.

Saturday mornings are busy, but after a 30 minute wait we were seated in a shady outdoor patio area.

We ordered... More

Lunches can be disappointing average. If you're in to kitty decor, then the ambiance will be enchant. Very popular for breakfast, so go early as the seating is quite limited.

Well-prepared selections - particularly for breakfast, with arguably the best pancakes in town and both usual and somewhat eclectic choices. Service tends to vary between average and below, and it's too often a long wait to see your server again or get those coffee or water refills. A little on the expensive side for the portions received. An annoyance not... More

while there always seems to be a wait, it is generally quick and efficient. one of the belter spots for breakfast in or around main street. omelets and banana bread French toast are excellent.

Nice place for breakfast. They had exactly what I was looking for which was eggs, bacon and pancakes. The service was prompt and the food delicious.
