Absolutely wonderful spot for breakfast. Very strange and fun decoration, super friendly and helpful stay, really delicious food, and mimosa flights! Great ambiance to be with friends and the perfect location to enjoy a stroll in Portsmouth. Check out their site to get in line...More

We come here when we can deal with the loud noise that always seems to overwhelm. It's a mix of a bar and a family restaurant so you shouldn't expect a quiet meal:)

Decent breakfast, what you would expect. I have only been here late night, after the bars close. It's packed and sometimes slow, but you're drunk anyway.

Everyone needs to go to this place for breakfast or lunch. We went there for breakfast and it had an incredible menu! Had Egg in the Hole with cayenne/cheddar toast. Great! Toast had a kick to it. Very funky; 50s, 60s theme. Downtown Portsmouth.

Nevermind... their own website says they're open at 7:00am daily... makes more sense... the TripAdvisor times are outdated.
