This place has the best breakfast in Salem and it's probably not close. The only drawback is limited parking and you are normally going to wait at least an hour to get a table.

We got there about 10am I think it was and had to wait an hour. We went for a walk to the State building and gardens near there and then were seated after about 50 minutes. Definitely worth the wait, I had the creme brulee...More
