Enjoyed by locals and tourists

We (locals) go often for breakfast since its in the neighborhood, but it's always packed with tourists for weekend breakfasts in the summer. Friendly staff and good food, it's a fun experience. I love the chocolate chip pancakes and my hubby prefers the eggs with homemade corned beef hash.

This restaurant was busy even on a off-season morning. There were many locals dining here, which tells me that this place has excellent food and service. The menu was extensive and the food, coffee, and service was wonderful. All the employees were super friendly. I highly recommend this place.

We decided to try the Famous Golden Egg, for breakfast, this morning. We have heard some great reviews but were always afraid it would be too crowded on a Sunday morning.
