This was, by far, the best breakfast I have ever had. You could just taste the "fresh". The service was wonderful and by the looks of it, the locals love this place also. We will take a trip to Gettysburg just so I can try something different on the menu. Delish sausage.

We will be coming here more often! It is very reasonable with the prices. The food is fine, the serving size is adequate, the coffee hot and good, and the servers are on the ball and pleasant. The atmosphere is wide open and bright, but not too bright as to be annoying. booths and tables, and we were happy with... More

We went there for brunch. I had the chicken Caesar salad and the other three in our party had breakfast. Everything tasted good, the service was wonderful and the prices were great! Don't judge it by the exterior as it looks like a little hole in the wall in a small strip mall. I would definitely recommend it.

I've been going to this restaurant since they opened; I always loved it. I moved away from Gettysburg a few years ago, and I came back to visit at the end of July, and I wanted to see if the West Side was still as good as I recalled - and it was! My wife and I had a good... More

Do not go here! My first time here I waited for over 20 mins just to get my order taken and another 20 mins to get my food. 4 other tables that arrived after me got their orders taken first. Cheap but tiny portions. This place is tiny and they do not have enough staff for it. I came back... More

Started off good. Becca is friendly and tries very hard, but the Skinny Girl is either unhappy with her profession as "drink fetcher" or she sucks at her job. Allegedly, Skinny Girl's sole function is to serve drinks. However, she only fills one person's cup at a time then leaves the table. When someone requested a refill on water, she... More

My wife and I weren't disappointed when we took our grandson for breakfast before our houseback tour of the battlefield. Food and portions were excellent and we noticed that they've remodeled the dining area since our visit last year. Looks wonderful and they didn't raise the prices!! Keep up the good work. We'll be going back on our next visit... More

We enjoy breakfast here. The Mickey Chocolate Chip pancakes the kids love and very reasonably priced. Service is always good. Great coffee and we think one of the better places to enjoy breakfast in Gettysburg.
