this Norfolk standard never disappoints, the service is friendly and the coffee is hot and free flowing. I go back just for the home fries in the morning!

Traveling down to Norfolk while around there, we happened upon this place due to some good reviews we heard about it. They didn't lie: the eggs are the highlight here, with their "omelettes" not literally an omelette but scrambled eggs with the food in the...More
