This was about my 8th visit and I must say that it was just as great as the first time. The food and staff are nothing short of amazing! We appreciate going to a place with excellent customer service, a variety of great food and a down home feel! I will continue coming back and telling everyone that I know!!!

It is a great place for breakfast and lunch. Their desserts are fantastic. Moderate in price. But the food is very well-prepared.

Went to Newport News on business and people in my group knew about this restaurant. WOW, I am glad we went. It's only open for Breakfast and lunch and it was a bit pricey, but the food was excellent! I had crab quiche and a side salad. The quiche was awesome and was served with a side of fruit salad... More

Breakfast this morning. Perfect scrambled eggs, fluffy and moist. Excellent sausage patties and cheese biscuits. Also, the waffles were great. Our servers were friendly and efficient, as always, even though they were very busy today. We enjoy eating here and will be back soon.

This is a hole in wall spot. The place was little sketchy at first. Waitress was nice and made you feel welcome. I got the chicken special. The mac and cheese was awesome. Chicken was also good. It was a special but I felt the price was high. But food is good. Would visit again.

We stopped here for lunch.It was a place that was unassuming and I think you would find in everyone's home town. It was a relaxing atmosphere and the wait staff was very friendly. The food was good too.

Grits were outstanding! Great staff. Food was excellent. Apple butter was outstanding, so much so that we bought a jar.

We loved the food! Some of the highlights were the fried oysters, fried fish, omelet, and pancakes!!! The kids also loved the burgers. The whole family wanted to go back the next day for breakfast but they are closed on Sunday's. It was by far one of if not the best meals we had during our mini vacay in New... More
