I got 2 pieces of French toast, bacon and coffe for breakfast. The food was great and filled me up. The coffee was hot and hit the spot. I have had the pancakes here & you get a plate sized pancake, so go hungry, or order just one!

Had breakfast here while visiting family and not disappointed. Great dippy eggs and Italian toast! If you're a sausage lover, do yourself a favor and get patties, not links -- get "one and one," one sweet and one hot. Staff was great, good prices, good portions.

Nothing special just everything done well. Yesterday day was mushroom soup, just a bit too much salt, that was hearty and thick. Grilled cheese sandwich on thick Italian toast. Good old fashioned comfort food.

We love local breakfast places. I read the reviews and my husband and I visited for breakfast. All of the reviews mentioned the Italian toast. So I ordered the toast, eggs and the homemade sausage. The toast was more amazing than the reviews. The homemade sausage (mixed - regular and hot) was fantastic. We ranted so much about the toast... More

First time I'd been here. It doesn't look like much but the food and service were good. I had an omelette which was stuffed to the brim. The grilled toast was very good. Would try it again.

It is very tiny, has counter seating and maybe a dozen more tables (a mix of 2 person and 4 person booths). Seating is first come, first serve, and there is no hostess.... More

On my recent visit to Gab and Eat I arrived late and found the place packed with people Someone motioned for me to have a seat at the counter so I wouldn't have to wait. They serve both breakfast and lunch. It looks like your typical diner with advertising on the table counter and your coffee or tea is brought... More

Jarod doesn't eat here. Typical old school "neighborhood joint" . Every body seems to know everybody, staff is friendly and entertaining! Not a better breakfast to be had within miles. Can not order the wrong thing, it is all great. Burgers are even better. I wish they did dinners....

Thank Robert C
