Wonderful Breakfasts, Relaxed, Friendly, in the Heart of Downtown Holland's Best Shopping Area, Easy & Fun! We love it! All ages love it! It is a Classic! The cinnamon rolls are large & delicious which we sometimes split. The Bird's Nest is a favorite by some but I like the regular eggs, bacon, English muffin! Delicious! If you need lots... More

I am sorry, just having Split pea on the menu doesn't make this a Dutch Restaurant! Nothing else was Dutch! Very crowded place. Servers running around like crazy, but took way to long for a Ruben sandwich and 2 eggs. The food. Prices $. Need more help and cooks!

Went to Hope and would frequent. Just went back after almost ten years, and still, hand down, best breakfast in Holland. Old school diner, with great service. Get the hash brown omelet. Simply fantastic!

This is just a great place for breakfast. The problem is getting in since it is very small. Love the food and the service. This is the small town diner you want to get up in the morning. Sausage links are perfect and the home fries are some of the best around. French toast is excellent with very good coffee.

An absolute must! Oh, the staff was so great, the food was delicious (highly recommend the hash brown omelet with pepper jack cheese), and well worth the wait. We did wait about 15 min at 9:30am on a Monday morning. Full of the local Dutch culture.

Went for breakfast on a Sunday. While there was a wait it wasnt too bad. Mel was our server and she was awesome! Attentive and went the extra mile. She even offered to give me a "to go" coffee. The food is down home good breakfast food. Cooked exactly as we asked and fast. Would definitely return
