We went for brunch today with family. There was plenty of choice on the menu. Service was friendly and attentive. Food was wholesome and tasty. It was perfect for the kids, as it's not fancy or pretentious. Will be back with the kids.

I had the veggie skillet with avocado and goat cheese and my husband had the breakfast burrito. I had a bite of his and both were amazing!

Had breakfast here and always love the special of eggs, crisp bacon, toast and O'Brien potatoes. It is always the same and very delicious. Great service, good coffee, and great food!

Fast service and great food. The coffee at the Whistle Stop is really good too. They offer a traditional American breakfast and do it very well. The prices are reasonable and you will be happy you stopped in. You will leave happy and satisfied.

This place has been here for years and does not disappoint in the service and the food here. I go for both lunch and breakfast. The soups are homemade and split pea is the best. Lots of carrots and potatoes in the soup. Their hot...More
