live here - but only have gone to this little breakfast and lunch spot a few times. I thought the prices a little high and not that great an atmosphere.

Went for breakfast...it took almost an hour for six of us to get eggs and toast. No refills on water or coffee. Food was mediocre. Would not return.

This is one of the best examples of an American family diner with great food, ambience and prices. Celebrating a birthday with daughter aged 21 and friends. Great eggs waffles coffee bacon. The works. Located in a low key strip mall but the best food and friendliest atmosphere. Highly recommended.

The service is friendly and prompt. The food is delicious, and the food always comes out of the kitchen within a reasonable amount of time. At this restaurant, I can always count on receiving "a bang for my buck." I also enjoy chatting with the owner, Buzzy, who is very outgoing and extroverted.

My idea of a hometown cafe. Best in town for local friendly service with all the standards at good prices. A treat during hunting season with early openings for breakfast.

This is the place to get breakfast in Chestertown. Before heading to the amazing farmer's market, stop in and get great food that feels classic and hearty. Specials are on the wall and the service is impeccable. The food is wonderful at a reasonable price. Don't go anywhere else if you want a real breakfast.

So what that the daily special is exactly like the menu, except for being ,25 cents cheaper? Its diner food but except for the specials, every thing is customizable and a la carte. so if you want 2 kinds of meat with your scrambled eggs-done. If you want grits + (southern) Scrapple (northern) and Biscuit (southern)- done,
