Kind of a standard looking diner - large portions, fast service from the kitchen. Loved the fresh ingredients in the Omelets.

We recently visited Gloucester. We frequented the Morning Glory numerous times for breakfast. It's a very clean restaurant, kid-friendly, and the atmosphere is always cheery. The food is top notch, whether you're going for breakfast or lunch. We highly recommend that if you're in or near Gloucester to stop in for some delightful food! Thank you, Stephanie (our server), for... More

We visited this little gem in July 2016- we were visiting New England for a family reunion in RI. We stopped at the Morning Glory for lunch and I ordered fried clams, my husband ordered the fried cod. The fried clams we spectacular, the batter had nice seasoning, which I find most places really do not use seasoning in their... More

Busy for breakfast, but the staff keeps moving and keeps everything moving. No frills but the breakfast was great. They have omelette, egg sandwiches, pancakes, waffles and more--just about anything you could want.

Rapid service with friendly smiling faces on the waitresses. Service is wonderful with humor despite the hussle bussel of this little place. A real Hometown favorite with the Locals. Unusual items on the list for breakfast. Anadama bread...which three of us had along with bacon and home fries. My hubby likes his Over Easy eggs, with toast , Bacon and... More

Having an hour to kill in Glouchester and a 5 year old wanting a "snack" I stopped in for a quick bite. Small place but we sat outside on the cute deck. Prices were reasonable (considering the area!) They have a rule about only sitting in the deck if you ate a full breakfast or lunch. Not sure if they... More

They only take cash and are quite small, but we love the food and the ambience at this place! I want this place and I need this song.

Stopped here for a quick bite and was not only fed well but entertained by the wait staff as they tried to accommodate all the people as they made their way into this little place. From locals to tourists this place treats everyone like you are family. Food was good reasonable and a good portion. Right across from a small... More

This is a nice, quaint spot for breakfast or lunch! Looks like it's a family operation that's been in business for years. This cash-only (no credit accepted), but they have an ATM inside if needed. There's plenty of parking next to the building. The restaurant is clean, neat, and very well-kept. Reminds me of a neighborhood type of "diner", and... More
