First of all it was self service and we had to wait in line to place our orders. The omelets arrived and were crispy and the cheese if present was certainly well hidden. The potatoes and toast were okay but neither of us are big on carbs. This was our first and last visit

The dam cafe is definitely my go to breakfast place in the area. Their sandwiches are bomb, but their breakfast plates are great too. I don't love their lunches but their hot chicken salad is ok. I always set work meetings here, too, it's a good atmosphere to chat.

We went to the dam cafe, we had the 2 different types of Omelets with home fries. They were so fresh and delicious! I wished I had taken pictures of our dishes! Highly recommend it. Next weekend we are back in MA. We are already planning to go back!

Casual, quaint, yet quite modern. Easy menu selections that twist your favorite comfort foods just enough to keep you coming back until you've rated everything on the menu. Not the fastest service, but always very friendly.

Walk directly to the counter and order. Breakfast is served all day. If you are staying then find a spot to sit and absorb the eclectic atmosphere. Very casual and comfortable. The food was delicious and the staff was very pleasant. Found this restaurant on accident...it was a great find. I would definitely go again.
