Scenes from Morning Glory: --- At breakfast a couple from New Jersey recognize a star from "Wicked Tuna" at the counter. They take selfies with him. --- On Wednesdays, an informal club of local older men meet for breakfast. Camaraderie galore, but no selfies. --- The waitress remembers your usual order. When there's a substitute waitress, the cook remembers your... More

Very friendly service. We were a party of 5 and we're taken care of by a friendly waitress, very accommodating. I especially liked the home fries

Kind of a standard looking diner - large portions, fast service from the kitchen. Loved the fresh ingredients in the Omelets.

We recently visited Gloucester. We frequented the Morning Glory numerous times for breakfast. It's a very clean restaurant, kid-friendly, and the atmosphere is always cheery. The food is top notch, whether you're going for breakfast or lunch. We highly recommend that if you're in or near Gloucester to stop in for some delightful food! Thank you, Stephanie (our server), for... More

Busy for breakfast, but the staff keeps moving and keeps everything moving. No frills but the breakfast was great. They have omelette, egg sandwiches, pancakes, waffles and more--just about anything you could want.

Rapid service with friendly smiling faces on the waitresses. Service is wonderful with humor despite the hussle bussel of this little place. A real Hometown favorite with the Locals. Unusual items on the list for breakfast. Anadama bread...which three of us had along with bacon and home fries. My hubby likes his Over Easy eggs, with toast , Bacon and... More

Having an hour to kill in Glouchester and a 5 year old wanting a "snack" I stopped in for a quick bite. Small place but we sat outside on the cute deck. Prices were reasonable (considering the area!) They have a rule about only sitting in the deck if you ate a full breakfast or lunch. Not sure if they... More

They only take cash and are quite small, but we love the food and the ambience at this place! I want this place and I need this song.
