There for breakfast on a Saturday morning. Arrived a few minutes before 9, before the rush. Impressive menu - creative twists on breakfast with lots of options for fresh, locally-sourced food (pork, eggs, etc.). Coffee was excellent, with frequent refills. Service was friendly and efficient. Three of us ordered one of their cheesy hash brown creations with eggs. All our... More

Had a nice relaxing breakfast here on a Saturday, which is nice because many places on the oval rush you and get quite rude if you don't get in and out as quickly as possible so they can turn tables. The food was incredibly fresh and delicious and the waitress was extremely nice and helpful. What more can you ask... More

Our party of four ate three different dishes with my husband and and I splitting eggs and sliced corned beef (hash not available). The couple with us are locals and ordered their favorites. All meals and coffee very good and service was excellent. This is a busy place and I would not count on a river view seat unless I... More

No matter how busy or what day the food and service is always consistently great. It's a unique blend of typical American diner and local creativity. They also offer on the menu locally sourced Foods like eggs and bacon, my favorite is the homemade Corned Beef Hash, yes not from a can.

Just eaten lunch here... Saw the reviews and was tempted in. First disappointment... Only one table overlooked the river ... Needless to say the table we were given was in a little side area which is the passage way to the rest room! So everyone going to the bathroom walked past our table and back! Second the service was very... More

We had a great lunch. I had a BLT and sweet potato fries. Service was prompt and food was hot and tasty. We had a great view of the river.

I've only been here for breakfast (top-notch) but I've seen the lunch menu- it's pretty impressive! They have awesome servers and delicious food. Arrive early for a good seat!

The Compost Heap here is amazing. My kids love the French Toast. If it looks busy, be ready to wait at least 45 minutes for your food and 25 minutes for your check. Try to stop in when it is not too busy (early on a weekday morning! - no on a weekend!). The coffee is not so great. Maybe... More
