We stopped here in search of omelets (for me) and waffles (for my wife) with an extra sausage link for our dog! The omelet was great - not overcooked (a problem at most restaurants). The waffle was good too based on the smile on my wife's face while she was eating.

Stopped here for a late breakfast after a morning bike ride with the organizers of the Peninsula Century Fall Challenge bike tour. I got my favorite hot breakfast food, french toast with sausage patties and sunny side up eggs while my friend ordered pancakes with sausage patties. Her father got the big omelet and her mother got the waffles. Everything... More

Intimate place for a traditional breakfast. My wife liked the cherry stuffed - was it pancakes or French toast? I don't remember, but she liked them a lot. Hard to fit a large family on a busy day, but it's great for at least 4. Great service!! Very nice people!

The breakfast here is good and the service is friendly. It is small so you may have to wait for a seat. If you like potatoes with your omelet you do have to order them as a side as they are not included.

After a morning hike in Peninsula Park we were looking for a quick bite to eat. This restaurant was easily accessible from hwy 42, service was quick, good food, and reasonable prices. We ordered the loaded hashbrowns, and a large turkey club sandwich with homemade potatoe chips.

Stopped here on our last day in Door County based on 3 suggestions from friends and locals. Great breakfast. Staff is friendly in this family owned business. We arrived about 8:00 and there were 2 other tables filled By the time we left there wasn't any tables open. Omelets are a signature item but try the waffles and pancakes too,... More

Stopped in for a little breakfast. Small diner with seating for only about 50. Nothing special in the decor, but the food was good. Diverse American menu items with a few local specialties. Anything you order will be good. I'd recommend the biscuits and gravy.

We finally stopped here for breakfast and were not disappointedl. It's obvious the family who operates it cares about what they do. The prices were on par for the amount of food given and the service was excellent. I would definitely recommend the Carroll House.

The morning we were leaving Sister Bay, we stopped at The Carroll House. Waitress was very accommodating and attentive to our table of 6. The food was delivered to our table hot and was very good. We were not rushed and enjoyed breakfast to the fullest. Prices were very comparable to breakfast in the area.
