This small very informal diner is well worth the stop for breakfast. The French toast is unsurpassed cooked perfectly outside and in with a small dusting of cinnamon and worth the extra $1 for the local maple syrup. Bacon lean and well done, eggs and grilled cheese also delicious. The portions are big and we could have easily split everything.... More

You must must must get the French toast - the best I've ever had. And the cage free eggs are fantastic. Tiny place - awesome food - nice people.

a favorite stop in the area. parking can be tight as lot is small but worth the effort. Personal service by owner, chef, baker. If you want posh, don't go, if you want real, this is your place. Breakfast and lunch only but a really good place to do both. Tourists and locals eat there.

Had an omelet and my daughter had scrambled eggs. All OK. They only take cash, which I didn't realize until after we ate, so I had to go to an ATM down the road and come back, which was a minor pain. They didn't have any baked goods, which disappointed my daughter since they have 'Bakery' in their name. All... More

We were camping 30 minutes away and decided to make the trip for breakfast. It is a very small place, very limited parking. The place was packed and we were a group of six. The owner, hostess, and waitress (all the same woman) was very nice and honest with us about the wait time. We waited 20 minutes and it... More

really good - make sure you want a coffee with your breakfast because it's not included with the breakfast and make sure you have cash - no cards accepted Didn't get to try the french toast but it looked so good we will have to come back for it. Was disappointed that there no baked goods at a bakery to... More
