“Just what you hope for in a diner”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Bet this place is packed on weekend brunches but we beat the crowd and loved the very full breakfast menu. Lots of good options, all looked good, our meals were definitely good. What you'd expect from a diner in terms of price, atmosphere, good food. Efficient service too. We'll return

“A second visit - and a good one”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

We were once again unable to get into the famous Nick's on Broadway - we refuse to wait an hour for breakfast.

This is nearby so we said "let's try it again". The place was packed but tables were prepped quickly. We had the standard breakfast fare - omelet, egg sandwich, and pumpkin pancakes; OJ and coffees.

All good. All quick. And easy on the wallet.

“Great classic breakfast!”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

We didn't want to eat at our hotel's restaurants $18.95 buffet so I checked tripadvisor for a breakfast place nearby..thanks guys! This pace was wonderful. Diner-like with extensive menu, but the usual eggs, waffles, biscuits and gravy were all superb. Service is friendly and efficient and prices are perfect. We stumbled upon it, but it wold be a breakfast/brunch destination.

“A good breakfast or lunch stop”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

Lucked into this via a Yelp or whatever review. A small, clean, and well run cafe. We had breakfast - large menu and very reasonably priced. The potato pancakes were outstanding.

We will be back.

“My fav Breakfast place in Providence”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Awesome ambiance, service, and food. You won't go wrong here. You can have a traditional great tasting b-fast or mix it up with a Thanksgiving omelet. Cool old style looking inside with a lot to look at. Great spot!!
