“Local sent us here!”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

A local sent us here & reported it as her favorite breakfast spot. It's great! So glad we went. Charming, comfortable atmosphere with seat yourself, serve yourself coffee and you order food at kitchen. Traditional and fresh dishes all with high quality ingredients! Makes such a difference...Best blueberry pancakes I've ever eaten. They obviously have a passion for bringing out the best in the foods they prepare. I'd definitely eat here again.

“Breakfast or lunch in Camden”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

Small, cozy, any day place to eat. Don't miss the skillets or baked goods. A place where locals hang out throughout the year but tend to avoid during the busy summer months cuz there are too many tourists.....

“A new old tradition”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

This breakfast/lunch place, in a fascinating old apothocary and ice cream parlor has always been tops in food. Exciting and excited new owner promises to maintain that quality. P.S. If it's cold outside, have their potato soup. Actually have it when it's hot as well!

“Ask a local where to eat breakfast, you'll be sent here”
Reviewed 28 January 2014

We went here based on a recommendation during a wine tasting. They were right on key.

The food is excellent, the price is great.

This isn't your normal breakfast diner. You seat yourself, you help yourself to coffee, you go to the back to order up your food, then you tell them what you had and pay up front. The decor in the restaurant is wild; all hand painted scenes hanging from the ceiling...pretty neat.

I had the skillet with the chorizo; it was amazing. I was starving and also got a breakfast sandwich; it was giant and amazing. She got the french toast and it looked amazing and it met her approval.

All in all, it should be a part of your visit when in Camden.

What a yummy spinach soup and homemade roll I had! The desserts and hand-made doughnuts are like my Mom's - super!
