The ladies at dennis seafood recommend this place to grab some breakfast. Simple, inexpensive, good, hot food.

Great food. Will can make a hamburger that'll knock your socks off.. His Mac and cheese is like Mom's homemade. Highly recommend!

Very laid back service and okay food. Grits arrived cold, but the waitress never checked back so they just had to sit there and look sad. Food was also very slow to come out from the kitchen, which is odd for a breakfast place, but it explains why there is often a line at the door waiting to be seated.

Small dining room. Very pleasant staff. Usual breakfast foods - tasty - hot. Seems to be a family run restaurant that caters to the locals.


The milk was good. ? Everything was under cooked or over cooked, Bacon was hard, eggs were raw, grits were bad. Our first and last time to come here. SORRY

Good breakfast! Loved hash browns really good crisp to them. Coffee could be a little stronger but I like it strong!

Not a bad mom and pop hole in the wall joint. Of was standard breakfast. My biggest issue was where my table was you could see the kitchen and the grill/stove. I am not sure when the last time the side was cleaned or scrubbed but the grease and funk build up was absolutely disgusting. It was what turned me off for the place. They were very kind and friendly, but the cleanliness of the kitchen was not up to restaurant standards. I would give a higher review if it were cleaner in the kitchen.

We stopped by for breakfast for the first time. We will definitely be back. It is a friendly place where the staff treats you like family. Excellent food. My omelet was perfect & my daughter loved her pancakes with whip cream.

Not worth it. Place is dirty on inside. Bathrooms are terrible. Order steak and eggs, steak was still raw. See photo. Flies all over the inside. Very dark and depressing inside. Overall just not worth it.

Neighborhood cafe. Had breakfast. Good food and value. AC was on the fritz so kinda warm. Staff seemed nice and attentive.

Wow this place is a hidden gem. Literally a whole in the wall. The breakfast is the best I’ve had, great portions and price with the best omelette and hash browns I have had in a long time. The service is excellent too. I have gone for breakfast and lunch and intend on trying dinner. Highly recommend this place and will being there again often.

Needed a quick breakfast spot, so why not this spot. It was cute and cozy. Folks seem genuinely friendly. The food was spot on. Very Fresh! It came out hot and good. The coffee was drip and was deliciously perfect. I'm glad we came and our bellies are full.
