Asked our clock repairman, Mr Stempel, where we should have lunch. Told him we always eat where the locals go. Did not blink an eye and sent us there. Being late winter, we enjoyed a cozy meal inside. Deck really was not an option. Super meal cooked to order. Learned some new combinations. Delicious choice of brewed ice teas. Learned... More

Went back this week-freshly made chicken soup with big hunks of chicken, carrots, celery and good broth--we had black cherry juice in seltzer water! and homemade corned beef hash-very crispy and flavorful. The omelets are full of interesting ingredients and cooked up in plain view in the little cluttered kitchen. It is a little tired but I would guess the... More

It was the favorite place of my buddy. He tried an awesome omelette with vegetables and sausages. We had enjoyed our short stop at Whistle. I would love to be there again. Hopefully, one day...

We had passed this small restaurant many times and I finally looked it up then we went for breakfast. It is compact-and there is a pretty back section outside we had not realized was there-cooking is done behind a counter so you could watch or eat at the counter and drool till your food came....supplies neatly stacked on shelves visible...

I have been here twice and every time I am floored by the outstanding service and "to die for" food. The place is small which I love. It gives you that warm and welcoming feeling. You can sit inside, at the counter or outside in the back covered patio. Our server Connie was so kind, friendly and a true class... More

Although it is tiny, it is a great foodie place, especially for breakfast. The eggs benedict are wonderful, with fresh spinach, always a plus. All of the food is home made and you can see it being cooked in the open kitchen. Worth a visit.

Found it while googling a local restaurant after visiting the Lilac Pond Farm in Killingworth. The name caught my eye and the ratings were very good. Thought we would continue our adventurous day. Pulled up across the street from this little tiny homelike building with the sign Whistle Stop Cafe so we knew we were in the right place. Totally... More

Description
Cute little eatery with lots of interesting food choices.
We serve organic and farm fresh meals that are creative and nourishing to the soul!
Kid love the kids meals and we cater to vegetarians-vegans.
We go to the regional market ourselves to insure the products are the fresh and straight from the farm.
We have an extensive black board that features and describes healing teas that change with each season.
Each season we offer a class on Energetics of Food based on Traditional Chinese Medicine that will forever change the way you look at each meal!
Once a month we do a dinner for charity.
100% of the funds go to do clean potable water projects around the world and Hedy (the owner) travels to many of these locations with Rotary clubs.
If you are looking for decadent sweets our Cinnamon bun French toast or stuffed pancakes are amazing!
We would love to cook for you so I hope you will stop by on your next travels!
Peace and happy eating!
