There is so much to rave about in this place: The service is so homey and friendly (even though the staff is being run off its feet) that you might think you're at Grandma's house for breakfast. The corner location on Beacon is perfect for...More

Nice little diner kind of place on the corner. An early stop for breakfast offered open street parking and quick service. The 'regular' eggs benedict was great. Excellent hollandaise and eggs cooked perfectly. The only downside is that I was sitting at a little table...More

A group of us met up here for breakfast and probably should have gone elsewhere as we could not be accommodated. We had to split between multiple tables. The food was great. The coffee... not so much. At 7:30 am it was a very busy...More

Well, good isn’t as good and to top that off they couldn’t produce a good cuppa tea and my hubby’s pancakes were raw! Won’t be back!

Not sure why people are lining up to get in because there's nothing spectacular going on when it comes to eating here. Normal cramped seating, grouchy hectic staff, no dishes over-promised or over-delivered, prices high which is common in this area, noisy, crowded, and altogether...More
