Mother Hubbard's is across the street from Pea Soup Andersons, and is a great breakfast! It is pretty basic elements (eggs, bacon, etc), but done very well.

This is a family owned business that also does a farm to table menu once a month. We go often enough to try all the menu has to offer

The atmosphere is that of a local cafe, nothing fancy but very inviting. Eggs were cooked to order, the home fries were excellent and nicely seasoned. They have a good... More

My husband and I were very pleased with Mother Hubbard's. It's a nice diner style restaurant across from the famous Anderson restaurant. I ordered an omelette which was huge and delicious, my husband had a cheeseburger which was also huge and delicious. Would definitely recommend.

The breakfast is okay. The lunch was good. We had steak sandwiches which were priced reasonably. This restaurants ranks a little higher than a Dennys type of restaurant in quality and has the similiar prices.
