“Yummy food - service questionable”
Reviewed November 4, 2007

We asked a local for their favorite breakfast spot and were told us this place. The food was great - Eggs Benedict and Crow's Nest (Eggs benedict with corned beef hash instead of ham) but the service was whacky - All 5 of us asked for water - many times - and when it finally came - it was one glass! Food was great - atmosphere is nil - but I'd go back!

“Very tasty breakfast!”
Reviewed October 1, 2007

We didn't have time to scout out restaurants on our way through town, so we asked a local policeman where to find a good breakfast. He sure didn't steer us wrong!

We felt at home as soon as we walked it - very much has a cheerful, neighborhood vibe to it. Every member of the staff worked their tails off while we were there - friendly, attentive and working as fast as they could go.

I chose one of the specials on the board - blueberry-stuffed french toast - YUM!! My husband chose the eggs benedict - he's a sucker for eggs! Both were really tasty - we both cleaned our plates (big portions, so we were really full when we left!).

Very much enjoyed this place and would definitely go back!

“Bad service in Newport? What other kind is there?”
Reviewed May 27, 2007

We actively sought this place out because it was slightly off of the Newport tourist beaten path. On the plus side, it looks like an old school greasy spoon and has a great deal of lo-key charm. So, we sat down for breakfast not expecting much and got even less. The service was extremely slow, the waitress was completely inattentive and was very resistant to simple substitutions (like scrambled eggs instead of fried on a sandwich). We asked for coffee 2 times and after we didn't get it, I walked up to another waitress and asked her. To top it off, three out of four of the people in my group had the home fries and all three of us were sick for the rest of the day. They we old and tasted moldy, but we ate them because we were starving and paid for it.
