Every time we visit the Kittery, York, amd Wells area we always stop at this diner. Our usual fare is breakfast and this past Saturday was no different. I had the almond crunch french toast and my wife had pancakes with pecans and bacon. The food was right on point, it came out super fast and the server was friendly... More

Food was fresh and tasted good, but even for fried food it was too greasy, should have been drained more. Being a diner one would expect reasonable prices, but much too high priced for what we got.

In the area around breakfast time? Do yourself a favor and head here. It's nothing fancy but about as local of a breakfast joint as you can hope to find. Lots of folks laughing, eating, playing cards, drinking coffee and joking with the server. Terrific food, including a nice variety of homemade breads. Wallet-friendly prices (even better because this is... More

Two ladies, Beana and Stephanie handled the diner trade in the morning. We noticed they had time to have a good word, or share a joke with customers, while still making sure the food was served quickly. There was an option of quick breads, such as banana bread, cranberry orange bread and others to be chosen instead of toast at... More

The people work hard and are so friendly. They had a list of 5 homemade breads on their chalkboard to pick from. We had the pumpkin and it was fresh and delicious. Both of us had egg dishes and all of our food was hot and eggs done perfect. Just a small hole in the wall place, but definitely a... More
