Our History




New Special This Week: Two sunny side eggs, turkey bacon & toast served

with a warm quinoa, kale, & cauliflower salad.



Our menu is packed with your favorite breakfast and lunch dishes and every meal is a winner!  Our soups are all created from scratch such as the New England clam chowder loaded with fresh clams and potatoes. Daily specials incorporate seasonal, local ingredients and many reflect a cultural food influence such as the Rustico Omelet (with proscuitto) or the Margarita Breakfast Sandwich (reflecting an authentic Mexican cuisine).

In the restaurant business, dining fads come and go but great food by professionals who treat you like family will always win out in the end. Our tradition stems from the family atmosphere in which we were raised - this translates to satisfying portions, quality ingredients, and a ton of joyful noise from a happy crowd (and an eccletic playlist!).
