Pros: Satisfying homestyle breakfast dishes: eggs, bacon, steak, hash, etc. Try the Lox bagel (Salmon, cream cheese, onions, etc). We didn't try the huge pancakes, but they appear to be a customer favorite. Cons: You will wait between 30-45 minutes on a weekend or holiday, limited seating arrangements, servers seem rushed, lack some popular condiments, the coffee is "ok", meaning,... More

What can I say. Even at temperatures below 40 degrees outside, it is worth the wait to get in line for this place. The service was prompt and good. The heaters kept us warm, as we sat outside to enjoy our breakfast. The place was packed and the line kept getting longer and longer. I had the corned beef and... More

Good food, remarkable employees and open at 6 am. We ate there every morning on vacation. Orange juice is the finest and the benedicts rock!

Sure, if you go here on the weekends or a holiday it's going to be crowded. Wait times could be up to 45 minutes depending on the size of your party. With that said, it really is worth the wait. The food is excellent and the service is always quick and cheerful. Their egg dishes are delicious and the pancakes... More

I read reviews before going and I wanted to see for myself. My family and I arrived at 8 am, 40 degrees F, there was a short ten minute wait for an inside table. There is seating outside with heaters, although it was 40 deg. F, the sun was warm and it was warming up. We still chose to sit... More

Worth a visit with interesting menu. The place is very busy on main street. Not sure if lunch and dinner is served.

We had a nice family breakfast with a variety of items being ordered from pancakes to omelets. The waitress was honestly, very attentive considering how busy they were. I would recommend this restaurant for a good breakfast!!

Crowded and noisy with a slightly shabby feel. As a diabetic I try to avoid heavy carb food unless I have a great love of it. I am not a fan of pancakes, so tend to order egg dishes when my companions get pancakes. I ordered Eggs Benedict Florentine. My eggs were awful. I specifically asked for a light poach,... More

The restaurant is good. We ordered sandwichs and they were really good. They were pretty busy but service was really quick. I see why it has had so many good reviews.
