We popped in here for breakfast after a night at Hotel Monaco. Very good waffles, good service (you order at the counter, but they bring it to your table). Nice staff, good selection for breakfast, including specialty coffee and smoothies. Looks like a good lunch menu. Seemed very clean, and the folks were friendly. We were in their new location...

We ordered a simple breakfast, and three full plates were about $5 each. The food was very good. Not fancy, but a great breakfast. The servers were friendly and efficient, and I can't ask for much more in a breakfast.

While I have been patronizing David and Dads for a few years now what I witnessed today will make me seriously reconsider what I order when or if I should decide to return. They get a nod up for serving decent "whole food" that's pretty tasty today when I stopped in to grab a breakfast sandwich I saw an employee... More

I know it is expensive to eat downtown, but seriously cost me almost $13.00 for the following: Greek salad with a little bit of lettuce, 2 oz of chicken, feta cheese, 2 tomatoes and a few onions and a large drink. I could have eat at Subway almost 3 times this cost and the food is better. Positive note: The... More

My second trip to D and Ds since it opened a few years ago. First time had some sort of southwest chicken wrap that was terrible and I have not been back since. This time I tried the Greek salad with chicken. Lot of good iceberg lettuce, two cocktail tomatoes cut in half, four kalamata olives, some feta with house... More

Make sure to stop by this quaint and enjoyable restaurant for breakfast and lunch if you're in the area. The food is great, lots of choices. I appreciated the honor system with drinks. It made me feel like I was in a home rather than being served in a restaurant, which I particularly enjoyed. Wish they were open for dinner.... More

I entered this restaurant simply because of their sign board in Charles St. It's seat-yourself with your meal delivered to your table. Serve yourself beverages with soda refills costing an extra $.50. Lasagna had just the right mix of ricotta cheese, ground beef, and tomato sauce. Came wit a ho-hum piece of garlic bread and no salad. But for $6.95... More

The guy who checked us into our hotel gave us the wrong time for the complimentary breakfast, but this place saved the day. Lots of choices, friendly staff, different flavors of coffee, delicious basics of pancakes and eggs. Fabulous sausage! Thanks for taking the panic out of this mommy's morning!
