I walked in and walked right back out because not only were the windows dirty the display case in front by the cash register was filthy, the floors looked like they had never been cleaaned with soap and water, and the kitchen which you can see from the front door was beyond words. I don't know how it stays open.

Electricity was out in our hotel and throughout much of Houghton after a long overnight thunderstorm. Only traffic lights were working. Victoria's was also without electricity but they had free coffee(!) and were cooking up breakfast. Everything was wonderful-- delicious french toast, eggs, roasted potatoes, etc. They bake their bread on the premises and make their own thimbleberry jams and... More

Had breakfast with a local who frequently goes there. Enjoyed my omelette but a Lebanese flavor for sure. Will visit again

Stopped in for late morning breakfast on a Friday. Aromatic buffet available with good smelling baked chicken, but we opted for items from the menu. My husband got the equivalent of a Reuben, but it had cole slaw in stead of saurkraut, which he enjoyed very much. I had eggs in a house made pastry shell (somewhat like thin pie... More

If you want a family and homey type of restaurant then here it is. She offers a large Vegan and Vegetarian selection. She will make practically anything that is on the menu and special orders are no exception. We frequently have our college son bring home 3-5 dozen vegan bagels and their vegan spread every quarter on breaks. She rocks... More

I stopped in for a mid-week breakfast with some co-workers. They were not busy, so we were seated promptly. There was only 1 server, but she was able to keep up with our group, although with a general lack of pleasantness. The restaurant is split into a front and rear dining room. The rear room has a window with some... More

This place has a local diner atmosphere with several dining areas. Don't let the small front table area fool you, they have a large table area in the back of the restaurant (that is where we sat). They lured me in with a breakfast special which turned out to be very good! Their menu offers a large variety of options... More

This is where you go if you want a happy meal and aren't in a hurry. The coffee is terrible but the food is fine---local and fresh and well prepared. Nothing really unusual. Friday buffet is great for lunch. A lingering lebanese flavor hovers over the breakfasts. It is slow and happy.

Small place on the street side but good food. We went for breakfast and will definitely go again when back in the area. Staff was friendly and attentive to our needs.

This place used to be amazing. They had music for lunch, great buffet, killer bakery. It's really gone downhill after Marie left. It's very sad to see how dirty is it and how unstafffed it is. The owner cooks, and waits the tables. Please get better.
