There is not one item at this restaurant that is not fabulous! Make the time to eat here even though there may be a line waiting to get in! So well worth it - cannot be missed!

I loved that they had a ham hash and cornbread - something different from the basic eggs and breakfast meat. It was excellent. Coffee is good. Service was good, not overly friendly, but efficient.

Popular among locals and visitors alike, prepare to wait for a table in the summer, even during the week. Great menu; don't miss the Eggs Benedict. The freshly made muffins (changes every day) served grilled with some butter is a great "appetizer," the kitchen is...More

Plan on a short wait if you're not there early. This popular spot is small but worth the wait. Waitresses hustle to keep everyone caffeinated and happy. The omelettes are really cool, but so are the pan cakes and breakfast sandwiches. Alcohol wake up beverages...More

In this case, the MBTA means the train from North Station, and I am not sure where the station is in Gloucester but it is not very near the harbor area of Gloucester where the restaurant is. You would likely need to take a... More
