I always enjoy coming to this café, as the service is always pleasant and efficient. There is a large breakfast menu, eggs meat and potatoes etc. Nice selection of breads. The coffee is hot and you usually do not have to wait long. The only down side may be that it is cash only, no credit cards. Friendly atmosphere.

This is the best place to meet the locals. Breakfasts are terrific. If you're there for lunch, try the tuna melt. Old fashioned and delicious. Friendly service, always!

The food is really good for a small town restaurant. They have a great patty melt and the breakfast is always delicious.

We stopped here on a Fri morning and the tables were about half full. We got seated right away and we met our waitress in about 3 min. She told us the specials and took our drink order. By the time she brought the drinks, we had gone over their pretty extensive breakfast menu. The food came out surprisingly quick... More

Fabulous homemade cooked in butter choices that make your mouth water before you even order. This quaint little hidden gem in the center of Burlington is one of our favorites. We found the service to be fast and friendly and cozy with the locals. It has kept our family coming back for 22 years.
