It is a little small but it is very welcoming! The server is very friendly and the food was amazing! The crab omelette was incredible, the kids had pancakes and they were bigger than the plate but delicious. Great little place to eat!

Visited the restaurant on 7/27/16. It is very small, seats about 30. The place scares you when you go in, messy, but clean. The owner and cook did a fantastic job preparing our breakfast. The seven people in our group were shocked on how fresh...More

This tiny breakfast place overlooking a back-bay creek is appealing for its personality but not its facility. The food was delicious and cooked with obvious pride by the owner/operator/chef. Dining here is like being in the chief's giant kitchen - wide open, informal and personal....More

This is a fun place for lunch. Get the soup. The owner/chef is friendly and fun. He makes a big point of the fact that he makes up each lobster roll fresh. I can think of better things to do with lobster, but his rolls...More

We happened onto this place, found something online, and wow, we were so very pleased. Glen Matteo, the owner and chef, greeted us as if we were old friends, with a smile and a hand shake. The place is in an old marina building, port...More
