If you are looking for a quick classic american style breakfast, with a family friendly diner feel, this place is for you. I enjoy the classic corn beef hash and eggs with grilled english muffins.

Went with my three sons for breakfast. Extensive, very affordable menu. The coffee and food were very good and our waitress was wonderful.

Stopped in for breakfast/lunch before visiting the Adam's houses. Great little hole in the wall kind of place. I had the corned beef hash which was truly outstanding. Hubby had the huge one pound burger which he enjoyed. Menu prices are very reasonable. The older woman who was our waitress was absolutely delightful!

Great little place for breakfast or lunch as they are only open until 2:30p. Service was great and food hearty. Burgers are a pound each- really hugh! We had sandwiches which were hearty. Great price value for a quick meal.

The Steak Tips practically make this place a historical site! If you haven't had steak tips for breakfast you are not living your life right. Its also nice to see The Patriotic Decor in the place, you just feel proud of America in this place

With the blizzard(s) of 2015 making getting out and around difficult its nice to have this local breakfast joint within walking distance. Pancakes are fluffy, corned beef hash is very tasty and your coffee cup is bottomless. Lots of decor relating to the history of Quincy and surrounding area. There can be a bit of a wait when crowded but... More

This spot is open for breakfast and lunch. It is a good spot for a hearty home-style breakfast at a good price.

Had breakfast here on several occasions, was here last Wednesday morning, great breakfast as always, good value for money, and it's always busy which is a good sign. Will certainly be here again on my next trip to Quincy.
