We live close by and always prefer this small local spot for breakfast. You go in and are greeted like family. Food is good and made to order. Get anything you want in the 3 egg omelette...yummy!

Had breakfast here today, after wondering for some time about Simple Simon's. They claim to have the best home fries in Maine...so we thought we would give it a try. Greeted at the door, the hostess seated us and took our drink order. I was not pleased to learn they don't have unsweetened iced tea (my drink of choice)...ok...I got... More

The haddock chowder was delicious. It was creamy and flavorful and priced affordably. It's a shame that this restaurant isn't open for dinner.

Ok choice, ok food at a ok price. A bit too small inside. A way to avoid being in a crowded hotel's included breakfast small room, but not more.
