“Small town awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

Wow. So glad we ended up stopping in here during a 16 day road trip. We arrived at 9:30 on a Sunday morning with what seemed to be half the town. The cafe was roaring with conversation. We got one of the last tables. We felt a little uneasy as the obvious non-locals, but our waitress was so genuine, warm and friendly that we were instantly at ease. I ordered the oatmeal pancakes and OMG, they were so excellent. Oatmeal, buttermilk and a little cinnamon with craisens mixed in. I'm still savoring them. The rest of the breakfast was fairly standard (as was the coffee), but overall the whole experience was wonderful and memorable. There was even a little notebook hanging from the wall for travelers to tell how they found Donna's. As you might expect, there were many interesting stories. Definitely stop by if find yourself in Newcastle!

“Great Breakfast... still”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013

I ate here several years ago on a trip into this area and had a great experience. Things have not changed since then. Ample portions of good food, with friendly, efficient service. Unsurpassed value.

“Terrific Small-Town Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2013

Had a great breakfast here, philly cheese steak omelette and it was great. All of the locals go here, and directed me to go here as well. Nestled in the heart of downtown.

“Great Place, Great Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Home Cooking is what you get. 6 of us stopped for breakfast on the way home and it was a treat. even the coffee tasted better here. Portions are large and the staff is as friendly and hospitable as can be. Very crowded on a Sunday morning and they kept up with the crowd. Great food and a great experience. No complaints from anyone in our party no one left hungry and the price was fantastic. Thinking about the gravy is getting me hungry. If I am ever in that part of the Country again I will stop.
