This is one of the best places in Quincy ..... only serves breakfast on Sunday which is great because everything is so good that it would be too hard to pass breakfast up for lunch if wanting to go there after Mass.More

We love to have a weekend breakfast here. Flavored coffees make morning special. Farm fresh bacon, sausage, and poached eggs that melt in your mouth. Homemade English muffins are what my husband comes for. House recipe jams top them off. Love their natural ketchup and...More
