“Pancakes and not much else...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2011

We went into this restaurant with high expectations because of the reccommendations we received. We were still high when the waitress came over...she was very bubblely and pleasent. The coffee was good also. Then the breakfast meal came...The pancakes where HUGE (bigger than the plate), the rest is now burned into my brain. The scrambled eggs we ordered seemed watered down and flavorless, the bacon was that really thin microwavable kind...my dad was a butcher, I know the difference and the same with the sausage. We were both disappointed to say the least. They are open Sat. and Sun. morning during the winter and expanded hours in the summer.

“worst breakfast in a year”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2011

the old owner is gone and this place is run now by a couple and the husband cooks breakfast. What came out was the grossest omelette I have seen in a long time. It tasted like a dog wouldnt eat it.The home fries were at least 3 days old. I only ate 3 bites total and paid and left. I have been to a lot of greasy spoons that dont even try to put out good food but this is one of the worst. The room was dirty and they are serving some kind of imitation coffee that is so lame its a joke. This place is now on the short list for failure. Its too bad the old owner took off. He did a decent job. Skip this place,truly.
