My wife and I were in the Bennington/Williamstown area for Columbus Day weekend and came upon this outstanding breakfast place. The hospitality was second to none. The owner made a point to come to our table to connect, and our server was excellent. I enjoyed...More

Wonderful food at very reasonable prices. And, we've never seen our food come out so fast, even when they were very busy. We'll be back!

Decent for a little country place. They had signs about turnip muffins. I couldn't tell whether or not it was a joke.

Had breakfast here en route from Williamstown up into Vermont. Quick, efficient service and healthy portions of good food - we both had omelettes, which were excellent. Clearly popular with the locals, which must say something in itself. Would happily return.

Looks nothing from outside. But inside the welcome is warm and friendly. Good fresh cooked food. Unlimited coffee. Staff seem to know all the locals by name. They genuinely seem to care about everyone. Great value too.

Only been here for breakfast and brunch but I have been there pretty much every time I am in the area which is several times a year for the past 20 years. Endless coffee immediately appears. Big glasses of juice. Perfectly cooked eggs and potatoes....More

Not a fancy place, just good food at great prices. Daily specials make for easy picks for breakfast or lunch, Helpful, friendly staff that seem to know all the patrons by name! They really care about their customers.

This is a very local unattractive place with a great breakfast for locals and those traveling through. Always crowed, often with people waiting at the door. Not too terribly expensive. Worth the try.
