Thank you TA reviewers! Ate here for breakfast when passing through the area. Public parking right around the corner. Tiny space, very cool staff. Had some coffee while waiting for a table. Breakfast was great, plates were large. Overall great meal in a local place. Would return and do recommend. They met all of our needs and for that a strong "Excellent" review.

Breakfasted here on two occasions. Really friendly staff and good choice on menu, plus there is a board with additional "specials". Their Blueberry Pancakes with maple syrup are a must. You must also try the cinnamon toast. It's certainly well worth a visit and extremely good value.

We went for breakfast this morning. Had a wait but they had coffee while we waited. Everyone who works there was so nice. The pancakes were huge and wonderful. Looking forward to going again!

Hands down the best breakfast around. A must do in Portsmouth and well worth the wait if there is one. The corned beef hash is the best there is, period. The toast, especially the homemade cinnamon French toast is out of this world. Fresh ingredients and great choices, daily specials are always interesting and delicious. The best tasting “regular” coffee in the area as well. Staff is very friendly and attentive. Unless you yourself own a farm you probably won’t get a fresher tasting breakfast than you will here! Highly recommended.

It’s a long wait and many people seemed bothered by that but I thought they were just impatient, to me, the idea is to put your name in and then talk a walk around the area which is beautiful. If you want to wait there, they had complimentary coffee. Food was very good, I had lobster avocado rancheros, which was a special and it was excellent, coffee and bloody Marys were excellent as well. Plan out some time and give it a try.
