I was looking for a place to put in time before a appointment and this was close by. I have not eaten here before so time to try it out. I had 2 poached eggs, two rye toast, and it came with ham, two breakfast sausage and bacon. I had a large orange juice and a hot chocolate as well.... More

We decided to give this place a try since we had bought the Musicfest diners card. This is a very small 34 seat restaurant with many regulars. We ordered the number 3 breakfast which had ham, bacon, sausage, 2 eggs home fries and toast. Our waitress was very friendly and the service was fast - considering the place was packed... More

Went for breakfast and had the all-day 2 eggs. One of us had bacon, the other sausage. Our server was very friendly and helpful and the food came out very quickly. Tons of bacon, only 2 sausages. Quite cheap, but, unfortunately, not terribly flavourful, especially the home fries.

If you want a cheap meal it is best to go here for breakfast to get the best nutritional value as the vegetables are always overcooked for the main meals. The tables are set up to get the most customers in at one time which makes it easy to hear all that is said in the room. The Scottish theme... More

We went to this restaurant for the first time today. We were warmly greeted as soon as we walked in we were told that we could just sit anywhere. We were not interested in a big meal so my friend and I both ordered the egg salad sandwich with onion chopped on top. Very, very good. It was served with... More

the omelette was okay - although they should put cheese inside instead of on top. Home fries are deep fried - I prefer the ones done on the grill with some seasoning. Toast was good but came with only one pack of jam. When I first came in I had to go talk to the waitress as they were busy... More

Ever wake up feeling as lazy as a pet coon - trying to decide what can be put off 'til tomorrow -- but still needing a breakfast to refuel the aging bod? That's how the Memsahib & I awoke Saturday past -- just too lazy to even plug in the kettle or pop bread into the toaster. Accordingly, "What say,"... More
