Fantastic service, fantastic food. What else could you ask for? Awesome home made corned beef hash - best I've ever had. Eggs are from a local egg farm and are HUGE! I'll definitely be back when in the area.

Tennis was rained out one day so I headed here for breakfast (the one in Longboat). I arrived before 10, and had no problems with a table. The food was good and the price was right.

The five of us were warmly welcomed and immediately seated at a nice large corner table. The restaurant is very simply decorated but very comfortable. Our breakfast was hot and tasty and the service quick and courteous.

My husband and I both had the standard breakfast of eggs, pancakes, bacon and potatoes. Everything was good. I can't say it was the best I've ever had, but good. I didn't enjoy the coffee at all and that slanted my view of the place....More

Excellent, very tasty omelettes and other fare. Don't forget to ask if their famous muffins are available. They are scrummy. We left absolutely stuffed! We visit here every trip. Communal areas need attention and the toilets were disgusting! But the food is great. So all...More

Excellent Service, good food, simple and relaxing atmosphere, reasonable priced. Our hotel's concierge recommended this restaurant located at St. Armand's Circle for breakfast and we really enjoyed it.

There are no steps to get into the restaurant. It is in a little shopping mall strip. You should have absolutely no problems at all.
