Food was all excellent! Had to wait a bit for table, but no worries...everyone was so friendly & enjoyable...we made friends while we waited. The staff & chef were so much fun to watch & interact with. They're a true family run diner & they're busy obviously because they're that good! Don't leave town without checking out Zeke's.

A small low key restaurant/diner across the street from the Atlantic, filled with local clientele engaged in conversation. Watch loaded plates of food being delivered by an attentive wait staff. Fish cake Benedict; eggs cooked to perfection, over large fish cakes, and Canadian bacon accompanied by tasty and crispy home fries with soft middles. Homemade breads and fresh squeezed orange...

Stopped for breakfast, which was excellent. They made an authentic Bubble & Squeak, delicious. The food is cooked fresh right in front of you. Full of locals, who obviously know a good thing when ey see it!

This was a a great place for breakfast - - full of locals who obviously were regulars as well. There is more creativity than expected for the smallish place, close to working fishing boats rather than downtown business types. Generous portions, and very friendly service.

I used to go to Zeke's all the time until the new owner took over. My breakfast was awful, the wait time was long and prices were ridiculous. There are way better places in Gloucester that have reasonable prices.

We visit Gloucester once a year and hit our favorite places like Two Sisters, Sugar Mags, and Lobsta Land. This year I did a quick Google search, wondering if we had been missing out on anything, and heck yes we were!!! So happy we tried Zeke's. During our trip, we visited three times. It's a wonderful addition to an already... More

Breakfast in Gloucester doesn't get any bigger. Big portions for big appetites. A variety of homage breads for toast or taking home a loaf. Great hash and cornbread. Waffles a bit heavy. Pancakes also very large and think. Although their peach pancakes are the best around. Fresh squeezed orange juice, and daily specials to keep customers coming back.

The service was AMAZING, the food was mostly very tasty, and the wait is long (we arrived at 10:30 and didn't eat until 12pm). If you love pancakes, omelets, wraps, french toast, and you have a little time to wait, Zeke's Place will deliver fantastic food. Make sure you feed the kids a snack first, as they don't bring anything... More

This little coffee shop in East Gloucester is a great choice for breakfast. They offer an astonishing selection of 14 different home baked breads, including delicious Anadama bread, which is a local favorite. The service was very prompt, competent and pleasant. I ordered poached eggs and they were cooked perfectly. The menu offers many different items as well as daily... More

They offer a good value and quality with their food. It can be a bit crowded and parking difficult but worth the effort.
