We were hungry, we ate there, and were no longer hungry. Wife had breakfast, I had hamburger and onion rings. They are very generous portions. The decor is very nice.

Great location, right across the street from Mansfield's town common and town hall offices. Food is good, but a little on the pricier side. Cost $13 for a bagel, muffin, cup of coffee and mug of tea. Staff very friendly.

After 22 hours on the road we finally arrived for a family visit. Of course our first stop was breakfast and this has been a family favorite for years. Great breakfast, friendly service and convenient location. It is a little pricey but well worth it.

The order came out so quick-when you go-did they already have it ready? I had a skillet breakfast-it was good and very filling. I'd like to come here for lunch sometime too-lots of variety on the menu.

Found this place when the place we were heading for was closed, turned out to be quite a find. Excellent service and an excellent breakfast, I can recommend the Nantucket oatmeal and the banana and walnut pancakes.
