First time here and not disappointed at all. The food is outstanding and you can get gluten free toast. The staff are very attentive. You must try the cheese biscuits

You have trouble in New Bern looking for a "grill" type place. You get a full breakfast here along with coffee for a great price. Friendly servers.

We found this place by chance. A great place to stop and get lunch 'to go'. Server was friendly and menu choice was ideal for us. Food was great, fresh and reasonable. The place was very clean.

a solo server/cashier/busser, but she did a good job keeping up. location is off the beaten path, but worth the trip as the prices for breakfast are affordable. hash browns were an odd gray color, but tasty. while you are eating watch for the multiple people that come through the kitchen entrances-it's kind of comical.

Warm, friendly atmosphere. Family eat breakfast here often. Owner and servers are very very warm and inviting...almost like eating with a close friend. Everything came out exactly as ordered. The omelette was perfectly made for my liking. Tasted like good home made biscuits. Will definitely stop again when in the area. This was one of the best breakfasts I've had... More

Read in the newspaper that the joint was moving, tried it out for lunch. Nothing on the menu sparked interest. Bla, Bla, Bla smothered in gravy.

The staff is friendly and do their best to get your order. However, there was not an indication anywhere that they did not accept credit cards. So I went through the embarrassment of having to drive to an ATM and hoping that staff would believe that I was coming back to pay. The food was good and served quickly, but... More
