This is a must stop for breakfast or lunch. Great burgers! Right on the oval in Milford. Upgrade to the sweet potato fries.

Super breakfast place. Well worth the wait. Local sourced sausage and other foods. Not your ordinary breakfast.

Wee love this place. Our only complaint would be that it is so popular we almost always have to wait for a table,but it is worth it! The staff is awesome! The food is great! And the cost is very reasonable. This is our go to place for breakfast even in the middle of the day.

We arrived on a Saturday about 1:15 or so and easily got a table for our party. It is kind of a smaller place, so If you have more than 5 or 6 I could see why there could be a wait. The server was very friendly and the atmosphere was old school New England cafe in the square of... More

Fresh, local-sourced, inventive, fun, casual, fabulous food. A diner like no other we've been to. It's an hour and a half from where we live, but I'd go there in a heartbeat to get breakfast or lunch. You'll walk in and wonder what's so special.... wait'll you get some of their food in your mouth.

Every time we ride by this place it has a line out the door! Well today we finally got in for lunch. I had the Brunch Burger which was cooked perfectly except they forgot to put the slice of tomato I had requested on it. Other than that it was delicious. The homefries it came with were not so great.... More
