“It doesn't get any better than this!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2014

I have been attending this restaurant for over 20 years and look forward every time I know I can go again. I have NEVER had anything except the finest cuisine! Truly, quality control is exhibited here. Breakfast is wonderful, but lunch is beyond exceptional!! No matter what you order, I know you will be satisfied. If you have to go "out-of-your-way to get here...DO IT!! You will not be disappointed! ENJOY!!!

“Surprising find”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2014

Found this accidentally while shopping at City Center - Oyster Point. Great homemade sandwiches and soup ! Old diner feel with experienced waitress sans piercings ! Give this a try, you'll like it.

“Frequent visitor, never disappointed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2014

This was one of the first places we stumbled upon when first moving to Newport News, we had a terrific lunch then, and I continue to love their breakfasts and lunches. Sweet Potato Pancakes are my favorite breakfast here, and the Warm Chicken Salad Casserole is a great lunch. No matter what you choose, the staff are all very engaged with the customers, and they get to know you quickly. I do a lot of meal/meetings here now, it's great food, and I like supporting great local businesses.....

“Ok place...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

Looks charming and cute and the service was fast, but it was overly crowded and the food tasted just OK. Prices were also ok, but should have been less compared to the food quality.

“Great, expensive food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013 via mobile

The food and deserts are great. The pricing is way too high. It costs me over $10 for a sandwich with chips. A small sandwich.
