“Great breakfast sandwiches!”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

I stopped in around 1pm expecting to get a sandwich for lunch, and then saw that they had their breakfast menu out in addition to their lunch items. They said they were happy to make me a breakfast sandwich, and it was excellent -- a BLT with egg on toasted rye and a happy, friendly woman who did everything -- cook, serve, run the cash register. The place only has 4 or so tables -- it definitely does a good take-away business. I went back just two days later to get another breakfast sandwich, and this time took my husband. King St eateries have gone upscale lately, and this place still has a homey atmosphere and good prices that I appreciate. We'll continue to enjoy this little place.

“ Home-style breakfast... ”
Reviewed 22 November 2013 via mobile

Good hearty home-cooked breakfast. Reasonable pricing and good service.

Needed 100 characters to finish review. I hope this is enough, or else I will delete whole review.

“A throwback to an earlier era”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

probably the 50s when you could get a hearty breakfast prepared by a fry cook that made you smile. Nothing special, but reasonable prices and real diner type cooking.
