Thanks to TripAdvisor, Carver's is our newly discovered breakfast treat. Service was very good. *** Great quality food with generous-sized portions. *** *** Prices are not cheap... but you get what you pay for. *** Atmosphere is cozy; a bit tight. Busy on a Saturday morning. Standing room only. Yes, I will be back!

I love this place for breakfast. Small dining area but with great service and a friendly staff. The whole grain pancakes are delicious . One fills me up. I add walnuts and cranberries. They have some delicious breads and muffins to take home. Not an inexpensive place for breakfast but a great treat now and then. On Sundays prepare to... More

This was our first visit and we were pleasantly surprised at the excellent quality of our lunch. Each dish was prepared in a manner far superior to the typical luncheonette. Go for lunch you will not be disappointed.

Everything was perfectly cooked and delicious. Homemade breads, think fluffy French toast, huge pancakes. Took awhile to get our food, but it was worth the wait

Breakfast here was AWESOME. Prices -expensive. The seating arrangements are tight. Very noisy inside. Expect to wait for your seats. We waited about 15 minutes-not bad. Try their Pumpkin Pancakes-HOLY MOLY they are good. Prices are high. Expect a family of four to pay 50-65 just for breakfast. The staff was very friendly and on the ball. Straight forward hard...

This is a great spot for breakfast with fresh fruit, baked daily blueberry and pumpkin muffins and a varied choice of omelets and daily specials (check out the blackboard). You can ask to have your muffin toasted with butter on the side. Yummy! The Denver and New Jersey omelets are good choices and so is the corned beef hash. There... More

Carvers is a small diner in the middle of town (1st Avenue) serving breakfast and lunch. By small I mean it seats about 40 at a mix of tables and booths plus 4 at the counter. Service is prompt, you'll usually have coffee on the table within 4 minutes or so of sitting down and the coffee is good. Menu... More

I've walked by this place several times, and I've always been intrigued. Today I asked a coworker to join me there for lunch. The restaurant is small, so there isn't a great amount of seating. We ended up at one of the three six-seat tables down the middle of the restaurant. We sat on one end, and several minutes later,... More

We went here around 12 noon there was a 15 min wait time. Since it is a small place, you have to wait outside. We were lucky that the day was beautiful not too hot or cool out. As soon as we sat down they took our drink order. Our waitress was not extra friendly but not rude either .... More
