“Lives up to the Hype!”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

Word of mouth reputation certainly preceded our visit to this humble breakfast place. The owner's standards for service, cleanliness, efficiency, quality, flavor and value come through loud and clear. The staff is fun to watch just performing their normal tasks - they obviously love what they do and are valued as employees. Food is excellent and of very high standard for this uber-picky couple. We so appreciate our server's recommendations. We will be bringing family back here for occasions where a delicious breakfast is in order.

“A Real Surprise!!!”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

You might miss this restaurant when driving north on 41 in Punta Gorda.
Building is plain block building with very little signage. Restaurant is on the small side, but the portions definitely are not!!! Real home cooked breakfast and lunch. I had the eggs benedict and what a surprise. Eggs were pouched exactly as I ordered and the hollandaise sauce was truly home made; great flavor; something you would expect in a fine dining establishment. Our waitress was very busy, but extremely pleasant and checked on us a number of times. Coffee was refilled without asking. A real keeper!!!

“As good a breakfast I have had”
Reviewed April 6, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I visited the restaurant after Sunday church and found the place to be packed. We were told it would be a 10 minute wait, which turned out to be less than 5. We were accompanied to our booth by the hostess/waitress and she immediately asked what we wanted to drink. Drinks arrived promptly and we placed our food order at that time. Our order came out within 5-7 minutes and was piping hot. I ordered soft scrambled eggs and they were done perfectly. The homemade hash browns were hot and crispy, and the sausage was seasoned nicely.Service was fast and friendly and I highly recommend this restaurant.

“Fast & Good”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

Very popular restaurant but wait was short for a Sunday. Service fast and courteous. Food came out quickly . I had full order of sausage gravy with 4 biscuits and wife had pecan pancakes. Food , and portions were enough and priced right. We'll go back
