“Great Breakfast, great people!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2014

We always ask locals where they eat. Was sent here by a gentleman the nite before. We love breakfast, good homecooking, don't need all the flowers, fancy cheeses, etc. Just good food.

The big guy had corned beef hash, nicely cooked redskin potatoes with big hunks of real corned beef, not canned stuff, just the right amount of onions and alittle green pepper. Huge portion, easily could have fed he and our large son.

I opted for 1/2 order of biscuits and gravy, again, nicely done, big biscuit with actual chunks of Jimmy Dean sausage in it. Again nice portion. Also, tried the french toast, loved it. Made with brioche bread, made there, Served with honey pecan butter.
Watched large plates of food pass by and observed the largest bagel sandwich be destroyed at the next table

This is a small working class cafe, With a couple of tables outside, workers coming in and out for coffee. It wouldn't appeal to the "snobs" out there, but its a great little find with really good food for a small price

We enjoyed watching the staff move like a well oiled machine taking orders, cooking washing dishes, stocking, restocking. Our server Becky was a delight.

“Yummy scrumptious breakfast!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2014 via mobile

Wow, we had six of us with different tastes and these guys really have a menu that worked for us all. Salmon egg dishes to French toast! Highly recommend. It is quite small and a bit hard to find but just ask anyone in boat haven for directions!

“Interesting But Not Exceptional”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

We heard so much about the Blue Moose Cafe. We thought it was a bit over rated, however, and nothing I couldn't find back home. Nor was it the cleanest eatery in town.

“Eat breakfast here. Period.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2014

The food here is the attraction. The restaurant itself is relatively small and out of the way in a marine industrial area, but take the time to find it and eat there. You won't be disappointed. I don't know how they produce such good vittles from such a small kitchen, but the only thing you need to know is that they do and you as the eater is the beneficiary. Lots of locals were there when we were, which is a good sign, but we were made to feel as welcome as if we were regulars for years. I had the Smokin' Joe scramble (Smoked salmon, spinach, and mushrooms) while my wife opted for the veggie scramble topped by cheese. The sweet hash containing both red potatoes and yams was a perfect compliment. Eat breakfast here. Period.
