I have been here multiple times. The food is average. The prices are great. I like the lunches over the breakfasts. The fried haddock is the best thing I have had there. The service is ok. It's crowded.

My brother and I on Saturday mornings take a motorcycle ride to find small local restaurants to have breakfast. This is one of the good ones. Small and quaint. Coffee is excellent and they are there to fill the cup constantly. I ordered Kielbasa and eggs but they were out of the Kielbasa. They replaced with steak tips. I would... More
