The last time I was there, the food (breakfast) was extremely greasy and the bacon was undercooked and soggy. The toast fell apart too. The food used to be good but, it wasn't on that day.

A friend of mine took me here and told me that this place is a staple in Bristol. I can see why. The waitresses were kinda friendly but if you were a regular then you get the extra chat. I kinda felt left out as...More

Husband and I love coming here for breakfast. Omelettes are tasty, pancakes are huge. Prices are reasonable. Never a long wait even though place is usually packed. Recommend giving this place a try.

Family owned and operated serving breakfast all day which was just what we needed. Friendly staff and great food. If we'd had time, we would have gone back for another. Serving breakfast and lunch.

This place is amazing. The food is cooked to order and if you don't see it on the menu you can ask for it. The staff has been there forever and it is like walking into Cheers on a weekend morning! Should not be missed!

Two of us stopped in for a late Saturday breakfast. The place is clean and well-kept, albeit a new-style diner. The items we ordered were perfect, the service was very good and the bill was not steep. I just wish they had a smoker station...More

I ordered a cheese and mushroom omelet, with a side of bacon. The mushrooms were cold and canned. Gross. The bacon was burned. I returned the bacon and received under cooked bacon. Serves me right for returning it.More

I'm so sorry you had a bad experience. It's hard to keep fresh mushrooms on hand as they go bad quick, as far as being cold there is no excuse for that. It's not typical for us to get a bad review so I will...More
