The local place for fishermen and others to have a good breakfast. You would not go here for the ambiance, (think of a 60's era family restaurant) but the waitress was very welcoming to all and made you feel at home. A nice touch was to add both a raspberry and strawberry preserve with the toast for your meal.
Another positive example of a great family restaurant - I went early for breakfast and the place was super packed. Only 1 waitress for 50+ customers. Found out that the fishing tournament had been delayed (due to weather) for 3 hours and they all came there for breakfast. Another example of a "locals" recommendation.
Since it is a family restaurant - she was able to call in other staff who were there in minutes. In the meantime, the customers helped each other.... pouring coffee around the restaurant, helping her clean tables, etc. It was a great experience!!

We stopped here on the way through on our road trip and gave it a go. We were so glad we stopped. A lot of people were there and before we left the whole place was full (always a good sign). The portions were big and if you like bacon you get a lot of cripsy bacon (yummy). They also had homemade rasperberry jam and strawberry perserves (again yummy). The prortions and prices were very good! The restaurant itself probably could use a remodel, but we stopped for good food not a trendy breakfast joint. Stop in for breakfast if you are in the area....we sure would!

Great food at Stafono's (only can speak to breakfast). Limited ambiance, but not a problem. Service is a plus as the servers are pleasant and prompt.

I have been here twice now. Both time for breakfast. Food was great, plentiful, and hot. Servers are friendly, and the service was great. No need to look for another place, when visting the area.
