Small locally owned restaurant with real home cooking, great service, great prices. If you leave hungry it is only because you ordered nothing. Food is priced for the "little guy." Breakfast lunch or dinner will always bring the same good service, same good ( and plenty) food, same good prices. If you have not tried this place, you are missing... More

Excellent food, excellent service. Great small town feel, with super comfort food. We have been here as a couple, as a family of 4, and with friends as a group of 12.

This "Mom and Pop" style restaurant is adorable and has real (not "silk flowers") growing greenery in pots on window sills! Know that it's famous for its burgers, but trying to watch my weight, so opted for a wonderful spring greens, walnut, dried cranberry and blue cheese salad bowl--Was scrumptious and was huge. Came with a homemade yeast roll. My... More

I always thought breakfast was the one meal very hard to mess up in a restaurant. The food was adequate but the French toast, though tasty, was very undercooked. The egg sandwich also tasty had under or untoasted English muffin. The coffee was good. I bought blueberry muffins to go and those did not disappoint! They're huge, one can easily... More

Recommended by our daughter, we tried this place on a Sunday morning.Despite being insanely busy (it was Sunday morning, after all), we were seated quickly and our very polite,knowledgeable waitress came back promptly with our coffee and took our order. Food arrived surprisingly fast and was hot,and exceptionally tasty. The Eggs Benedict special was as good as any I've ever... More

Based on the Trip advisor reviews, we decided to try this restaurant. We often go to Plattsburg and want to try new places. The restaurant is not on the main strip , which is not necessarily a bad thing. It is clean and its decor is basic. Service and quality of food is where things need improvement. While we were...

Their food is always good, and you get a crazy amount for the money. Breakfasts are great! I've had just about everything, but sausage gravy and biscuits is my go to.

Happened to come across this place on Trip Advisor & decided to give it a try on a recent trip to Plattsburgh. Because it was after 12 noon ,we opted to have lunch . We found that prices were very reasonable, service was overly friendly and the place was clean. Both orders were very good without any complaints. We did... More

The place was wall to wall full, and we did have to wait about 5 minutes but it is always worth it in the end The wait staff was friendly and the food was great, the portions are big and I found the price to be good. I have never left there hungry
