“Great local spot!”

Reviewed 9 August 2013 via mobile

Had a great breakfast here this morning- 2 perfect eggs, crispy home fries, English muffin and coffee, all for less than $3, including generous tip. Loved sitting at the counter with a very diverse group of friendly local folks. Felt worlds away from the touristy chain places a few blocks away. May go back tomorrow!

One of my favorite spots in downtown, Niagara Falls. Everything about this place is classic. Breakfast for two may cost you somewhere around 6 dollars. They have the most beautiful mid-century light fixtures. The counter top and cash register form the shape of a question mark, hence the name. This place is the opposite of Applebees or Chili's, and that is exactly what is so right about it. I sincerely hope it never changes. Fits like your favorite old t shirt. Nothing fancy, no substitutions and my favorite part, "If you're on your phone, you're on your own!"

A very down to earth family diner with limited seating. Most meals are under $3.00. Coffee is $.65, free with meal. The service was fast and efficient, the food was very good. Not a tourist spot - patrons are mostly locals, which speaks to the quality of the place. We went there every day for breakfast while in town. Breakfast for two with drinks - $7.85. Can't go wrong!!

The Why Coffee Shop is one of those local places we always go to eat breakfast when we go home for a visit. The food is good and very inexpensive, you can get breakfast for less than $3.00. During the weekdays the coffee is free with a breakfast order. It is not fancy, it is first come first served and they only take cash. Worth the wait.
