We were on our way to Portsmouth from Concord and I saw a picture or video of the Fat Elvis french toast and my daughter said she had to try it! So we stopped in and it was pretty busy but they got a table...clear ASAP and got us a table. The decor is so cute, very bright and happy. The ladies serving were talking to everybody like they were all old friends and happy to be there. Such a refreshing atmosphere in a time when it’s hard to find good service. I had the avocado toast, my daughter got her Fat Elvis, and my husband had the Danny Boy Burrito. Everything was beautiful and tasted just as good! When we hit back to Texas we all agreed that was our favorite meal of our whole trip in New England! If you’re in the area or even if you’re not, it’s definitely worth the drive to enjoy this sweet little spot!More

Amazing food, amazing atmosphere, amazing staff. Best breakfast in Dover hands down. Busy but worth the wait. Captain french toast and corn beef hash is one of our family's favorites.

Small and quaint (no seriously it's small). Great service, very friendly. Food was really great with some interesting and unique options. I of course went for the Nutella and it was gigantuane and hubby had the eggs Benedict which he literally licked off the plate!

Met them at a charity for the Dover Children's Home, where they donated food and their cooking skills to the event. Was so impressed when to their restaurant the next day and had their homemade hash made with pulled meat and beets. The best hash...I ever had. Also tried one of their apple cider donuts and it was fantastic. The crew there were very friendly and made you feel at home and like you were a regular. Can't wait to try their other offerings.More

Absolutely amazing food, service and people who own the restaurant! Food is made fresh to order and is delicious! Best breakfast spot I’ve ever visited, hands down! I visited the Dover area for 4 days and got breakfast there every day, easy decision! Portions are...large at very reasonable prices. The staff is attentive, fast and accommodating, top notch! Keep up the good work folks!! Will not be disappointed!More

Food is great, service is friendly. Unique dishes. We had breakfast. There are not a ton of tables, but the three of us did not have to wait. Try this eclectic little restaurant, you won't be disappointed.

Now I realize why this place is so popular. While in Dover recently, I stopped here for breakfast and got the homemade red flannel hash with two poached eggs and Texas-style country white bread. I love homemade corned beef hash, and this version of their...corned beef hash with roasted beets was incredible. The poached eggs were cooked perfectly. Big portions, very reasonable prices. I took home one of their pecan sticky buns to have with coffee later, and it was fantastic. Their menu has a bit of a southwestern slant and has a lot of great choices, and their daily specials are very creative. The cafe is small and colorful, with dog paintings and prints on the wall and a collection of wind-up toys, with one on every table. Unique and appealing cafe, friendly owners, and really good food!More

Had the Perro Gordo dish with chorizo and a fresh mocha chocolate muffin, and both were fantastic. The owners are super friendly and make the café feel like a cozy hub for the community. Putting this one on my list of return favorites. Highly recommended.

This little nook really emphasizes good scratch cooking. With friendly attentive staff this is a great place for breakfast or lunch. Keep in mind there are only a handful of tables and when the word gets out about this gem they are bound to have...a wait at most times. Their portions are large and their chef is creative with new specials daily that will take you more time to decide than to eat the dish. I'd recommend going with a couple of people so that everyone can get something different and you can share.More
