My breakfast was delicious. They collect all type of cute saying on small signs that now hang on the Cafe wall. It's a good way for their customers to pass their time while waiting for their food is being prepared. We were seated quickly. It was busy when we arrived. Parking was free. My pancakes taste as though they made... More

Great home made soups and good simple sandwiches. When you want some comfort food in an old fashioned family style cape cod breakfast and lunch place, this restaurant delivers. Their corn chowder was especially memorable.

We have been to a lot of breakfast cafes over the years on the Cape but this has now been our place of choice for several years. Small friendly and with a menu that covers all the basics. Service is quick and the food is always top quality. Breakfast here on the first and last days of our vacation is... More

Found everything at this restaurant pretty average. Kind of an old school style restaurant with basic menu choices, plus a few "throw back" specials like franks & beans. Server was efficient, but not very outgoing. My BLT literally had 2 slices of bacon on it...a bit skimpy. Homemade potato salad was pretty good and my friend liked her chocolate chip... More

We've been to this restaurant many times a season and over the years. A lot of people don't know about it so you can usually get in. When we were seated, we were in a bit of a rush. When the server came and asked for our drink order, I asked if we could order our meals also. I was... More

We stopped here for lunch, passing over the higher priced options in Harwich. It's standard diner fare, but if you need a quick, inexpensive meal (I recommend the turkey sandwich and a cup of their homemade kale soup), stop here.

I'm not sure what keeps bringing me back here......the home style breakfast or the great staff. The restaurant is small but seating is never a problem for small groups. The food is ready fast but no rush, your coffee cup will be refilled as often as you like. It's my favorite way to kick off a weekend. I'll be back... More

I live about 2 blocks away and it's true the locals do come here! In fact, have ended up coming here the last 3 consecutive Sunday's. The service here could not be better. We've walked in with our Granddaughter today and two of the waitresses scrambled to make certain that we were seated promptly, and of course, with a high... More
