After shopping, my sister and I wanted something quick and light. We were not disappointed as our order was so delicious that we ordered another round to go, plus dessert.

located 1 block from the Newport News Marriott, my husband purchased egg salad sandwiches because we slept in, yeh! Sandwich came with slaw and pickle. It was tasty but over-priced.

It is a great place for breakfast and lunch. Their desserts are fantastic. Moderate in price. But the food is very well-prepared.

Went to Newport News on business and people in my group knew about this restaurant. WOW, I am glad we went. It's only open for Breakfast and lunch and it was a bit pricey, but the food was excellent! I had crab quiche and a side salad. The quiche was awesome and was served with a side of fruit salad... More

Breakfast this morning. Perfect scrambled eggs, fluffy and moist. Excellent sausage patties and cheese biscuits. Also, the waffles were great. Our servers were friendly and efficient, as always, even though they were very busy today. We enjoy eating here and will be back soon.

This is a hole in wall spot. The place was little sketchy at first. Waitress was nice and made you feel welcome. I got the chicken special. The mac and cheese was awesome. Chicken was also good. It was a special but I felt the price was high. But food is good. Would visit again.
