We had a great breakfast here last Sunday morning -- good coffee, and they were very generous on refills, great hash brown potatoes, delicious sausage, and excellent value for the money. If we lived in Bristol, we would certainly become regulars.

While staying in Bristol, we asked the front desk for recommendations for a breakfast place good for kids. They showed us 3 places on the Bristol brochure we walked into all 3 but all were overpriced and too upscale for our desire for pancakes. We found this local gem off the brochure right on Hope Street! Cheap ($17.00 for 3... More

Hostess is his wife and very nice. No rush. Bathroom could use a restroom sign and needs updating. Would return for... More

Went here with friends and teens for brunch during break for AAU basketball tournament. Needed something quick and inexpensive. This place was perfect. Small and quaint but you felt right at home. Food was great. We all ordered omelets that came with home fries and toast. Service was good and friendly. Would definitely eat here again.

Just right portions prepared just right. Frequented by locals which says much and we were able to meet and greet, Highly recommended!! When... More
