Delicious food at a reasonable price. We stopped here on the way to the slopes one morning. The food was cheap and great if you are on a budget. The service was with a smile and very friendly. The waitress was quick to refill our drinks and check on us if we need things. Our food was out within minutes... More

I had breakfast with my three sons two mornings. The food was plentiful, tasty and at very good prices. The service was also courteous. I will definitely come back when I return to the area.

Stopped for breakfast and the pace of the young guy behind the counter was laughable. All very nice staff but sooooooooo slow.

Went here two mornings in a row. Very satisfied with both breakfasts The pancakes are big and very filling.They offer a stack of four, but that is so much to eat, so I settled on a stack of two which was plenty. Good food and friendly service. The toast is homemade and the slices are thick cut. Really liked the... More

Small friendly restaurant with a few tables and a counter. I had a nice breakfast of bacon and eggs which came with two thick slices of bread and big cups of coffee. There is a nice local gift shop adjoining the restaurant.

This is one of two places in Wilmington that were recommended to us for breakfast. It was ok - basic breakfast food, but nothing great. The french toast had frozen berries that were still somewhat cold on top. Nice, friendly people, though.

This appears to be a family run restaurant fairly close to the Whiteface Mountain entrance. Dining is either outdoors on covered porch, or inside in the very woodsy, basically outfitted dining area. The young man who served us was ultra friendly, We were not impressed with our food. Fries were oily, and our main dishes lacked flavor. We hear the... More
