Full of locals and tourists, like us. Great service, fabulous food. I had scallops and Bob had a fried haddock sandwich - which he absolutely loved. We'll be back in a couple of weeks!

We were excited to try this place because of the ratings. It is s traditional "greasy spoon" with lots of character, Formica tops, and folded thin omelettes. Good for a quick breakfast. Average food and service.

It is available but during their busy times, it may be difficult to find.
Hi, is there gluten-free bread/pancakes available? The restaurant is marked "gluten-free" but I couldn't find anything on the menu.
