We wanted to have a no frills breakfast and all the reviews I read on K’s were stellar. Being that it was right on the way to where we were traveling to that morning, it was a no brainer. We were greeted by a woman who appeared to be the owner and she was very friendly. She seemed to know... More

Once in a while you just want to go to a friendly place and have a good coffee and homestyle breakfast. Anytime is a good time.

Family style restaurant in old motel. The décor isn't much but the food is good with big portions. The wait staff are very friendly and have worked there for years. Average breakfast price is about $8. Toast is made with homemade bread. All in all a great breakfast at a good price. Bathrooms could use a renovation.

Driving by, I'd never stop if I'd never been there, but my father-in-law swears by it. When we visit, we usually eat there at least once. K's is the dining room for an old school MOtel.

Desperately searching for a decent breakfast while vacationing in Saint John, I trusted a few random and out of date reviews on Yelp and Trip Advisor for K's. So lucky! You would not think to stop at this tiny spot way off the main drag tucked into the corner of a worn out motel, but this is a serious breakfast... More

I am amazed at this small cafe. It serves a great breakfast, with home made bread. Their lunches are fantastic . Everything is real homemade, none of this process food, appears everything is from scratch. The staff are friendly and really make you feel welcome. It's a hidden gem in a bit of a run down motel, but will worth... More
