Nice local cafe for breakfast or lunch. Always polite and friendly. Excellent egg sandwiches. A slowly disappearing institution, but this one is not to be missed.

The atmosphere is pretty uninteresting, but the steamed Cheesburgers are super. Stop for an egg sandwich for breakfast or cheesburger for lunch. Take it to go, or sit outside at the few tables available.

On our drive to up to Springfield, MA from NJ, we were hungry for a burger so this place came up right off exit 64. Very small place, very friendly staff behind the counter. We ordered 2 bacon cheeseburgers (steamed). Great tasting burgers, definitely hit the spot for us! The cheese was melted and burger was tasteful. Glad we were... More

I real miss this place as I moved away. Every visit back I stop here for the wonderfully priced and tasty steamed burgers.

I love going to Sara J's. They have the best eggs, bacon and homefries money can buy, not to mention their specialty, Cupcakes. They also have fantastic Steamed Hamburgers/Cheeseburgers. Their prices are great and the two women that work there are so nice. Prices are better than any other place around, hands down... If you are looking for a small,... More

I have only been here once for lunch for their steamed cheeseburger. It was very good, better than Ted's in Meriden, which is well known in the area for their burgers. I can't say the same about the home fries. They were quite disgusting and looked like they had been sitting in their container for most of the morning. I... More

Small hidden gem of a place located in Wallingford ,Ct . Sara and her Mom are two very hard working ladies in this Family owned place. Where feeling is put into everything they do from the food to customer service. I'd highly recommend them to everyone. I praise Sara's baking so much I would invest her product down the road...

I can only review the cupcakes since that's all I've tried but they are the best cupcakes I have ever had and they are very reasonably priced. Only 2 kinds of cupcakes are made a day but you can also special order them. I highly recommend the cupcakes.
