“Great Brunch”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

My wife and myself went there with another couple who live in Lunenburg. As they had eaten there before we went with their recommendation of Eggs Benedict with crispy local bacon....Delicious! They serve it 3 other ways as well I think and they would all probably be just as good. The hollandaise sauce is homemade so not too heavy. Eggs were cooked perfectly accompanied with a side order ( on the plate) of a potato patty? I would say the best I have eaten. Orders were served hot and promptly. Good coffee as well which in my opinion can make or break a nice meal. Friendly owners/staff. Definitely worth a visit.

“Best Brunch”
Reviewed 20 March 2014

As someone new to the South Shore, I've been trying to find a great brunch place, look no further, here it is. It's a busy spot in season but the food is incredible, well worth the trip to Lunenburg. The eggs benedict are fabulous. I was worried about my significant other, who really likes a hearty breakfast, when they arrived with no hash browns, but the quality of the food is so great, you won't even miss them!
