This place has all the ambience of a 1960's school cafeteria. If you enjoy being met with owners grandchildren's disgust at being forced to work their summer away in this this post-war era decor time capsule, and you love the heavy smell of pine-sol with your morning omlet, then run don't walk through the doors of this run down depression...

We went for breakfast based of off an online recommendation. We (all four of us) were sorely disappointed. The service was poor, the food was cold and the place was a little run down. The highlight of the meal was the cinnamon bun we ordered from the front counter, which was delicious. Our visit would've been much better had we... More

My family of 5 stopped here for breakfast. My son and i got the creamed chipped beef which was very very good. My husband got the western omelet and was very pleased. Our waiter was a really nice guy and very attentive. Food was served quickly. We will go back.

We happened to stop in here by accident and boy were we glad we did! Great menu, great food! Open year round, except for Christmas. A must stop on our trips to OCMD.

I facilitated between a "poor" rating and an "average" rating, but since ambience is such a big part of a dining experience, I had to go with poor. This restaurant had an icky factor due to a cleanliness issue and decor straight from the 1950's. Plastic flowers that had been sitting there undusted for 60 years and furniture just as... More

We came here years ago for the bakery. We tried on the weekend to pick up sticky buns, but they had sold out early due to their reputation. Wound up getting them this morning as takeaway. Excellent sticky buns and nice staff. My wife said the coffee was bland. Not sure I would eat here, but the baked goods look... More

Their bakery case certainly looked appetizing but the pastries stopped at looks. The sticky buns chewed like they were two days old. The same goes for the pancakes. I had better coffee when I was in the Army. The service was A+++, the only thing going for it.

On a winter Monday at the ocean there are not a great number of choices in restaurants other than big chains. We wanted crab cakes from a local vendor and were striking out over and over. We pulled in to this little strip mall for a different restaurant, which was closed for the season. I love diners and Dirty Harry's... More
