I'd like to start the review with a statement, they advertise this restaurant as having the best breakfast in Lake County. If this is the best breakfast, I'd dislike to see what is the worst. Our server sat us relatively quickly upon arrival and handed us menus. Within two minutes she was back asking if we were ready to order... More

The service was fabulous and laid back. Our waitress Dee was super friendly and just good at her job. The food was what we were expecting from another high dollars restaurants we visited. Simple, good, inexpensive, tasty food. A must for everybody trying to get a local experience and a happy tummy.

Breakfast was Delicious!!! Great service provided by the staff. It is a cute and cozy diner welcoming you at the entrance of the heart of Mount Dora. If you have a sweet tooth you must order the cream cheese stuffed strawberry french toast.

Nice to find a breakfast lunch stop away from the busy town, and we enjoyed our brunch dishes very much. French toast was awesome, and eggs with bacon and home fries was really good. Nice service and a lovely decor, and we would definitely come back.

Our first visit to Mt Dora and saw many many cars around this restaurant and I said we had to try it and very glad we did. We both had omelets with grits and biscuits and they were great. Next I will go for soup and sandwich as just too many options. Loved the small town feel of the restaurant... More

My husband and I stopped for breakfast yesterday hoping for a decent breakfast. What we got far exceeded expectations! The doggie decor was so cute and the staff extremely friendly and eager to please. When breakfast arrived it looked like your standard fare, although they do offer much more tempting and exotic choices. Again, I wasn't expecting much because we... More

Visited with wife. What you would call real America. Great home cooked food and friendly service. Liver and onions were to die for.

This place is relatively crowded on the weekends but worth the wait. The breakfast choices and quality are excellent. Best grits in the area. Prices are low and well worth the value. The entire staff is friendly as well.
