We make it a point to go to Baker Hill as often as possible. Today Debbie took FABULOUS care of us. Their gyro skillet is my favorite along with a bottomless cup of coffee. Definitely recommend this place if you're in the vicinity.

Extensive menu, nice waitstaff. My Florentine Benedict was very good. The Carpenters Skillet was a very good portion including 4 eggs and lots of meat plus pancakes and was delicious. Very reasonably priced.

We stopped here on a whim, and we can't rave enough about this little mom and pop style restaurant. Relaxed atmosphere, very kind and accommodating staff, and delicious food (large menu!). The omelet was huge, my husband said the bacon was great, I personally ordered...More
