“Breakfast by the Lake”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

French Toast from their fresh-baked breads. The best slice of ham I've had in a while. Sit in the back, with the lakeside view. Perfect.

“A good lunch”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

We stopped here at the recommendation of a local. Lunch (burger and a BLT) was good, fast, and reasonably priced. The lunch menu has just the right number of choices and there were 5 or 6 specials for the day.

“Great food cheap”
Reviewed 10 February 2013 via mobile

Love this place, there's always people there for breakfast& lunch. They open at 5:30 am and there are regular customers there that early. Pretty much every day. It can get busy and service may get a little slow at times but the food is worth it You get ore than you pay for. The portions are huge. And cooked fresh. If you order a ham & Cheese omelet its real ham cut from a cooked ham. The only thing that I have to say is on weekends the cook needs more time. Not the same as the week cook Dave and the waitress Shannon. They are the best !! The food is plenty and the price is cheap. Best place around for the money. Imop.

“Good food at fair Price.”
Reviewed 8 November 2012 via mobile

Been there several times for Breakfast, & Lunch. Haven't had a bad meal yet. Good size portions. They are always busy from 5:30 am to 1:00 pm and have a number of regulars every day. I wouldn't hesitate to send anybody. And the waitress Shannon has a great sense of humour. Always has a smile. And if you sit in the back you have a great view of the lake. And it's quieter when busy.

“Nice Location; Good Food”
Reviewed 1 September 2008

Everybody feels comfortable at Trolley Stop. This restaurant's front windows have a commanding view of East Brookfield's Main Street and it's the sort of place where you can sit in the window and the cook might ask from the counter whether you want coffee to start. The eggs, pancakes, and omelettes are good and the portions are fine. The burgers are good and so are the soups, sandwiches, and other lunch fare.

The back dining room has a nice view of Lake Lashaway. I sometimes like to come here in winter and grab one of the tables in the front window. I read my paper in the sunshine, have my eggs and toast, and maybe even expect the trolley to stop. Well, there hasn't been a trolley since the early twentieth century, but this place has that old-fashioned kind of quality that brings you back again and again.
