We always make this place a breakfast stop when in North Conway. Quaint little place run by mother & daughter. The best poached eggs ever, and wild game sausage that's incredible. Also local NH coffee that is promptly refilled. Owners are very friendly and welcoming.

This was an adorable place with really cool items all over the walls, ceiling, and in cute cabinets. The food was great and even our young kids enjoyed the food and provided coloring books.
