Down home friendly neighborhood restuarant
By Gottahaveit on 12/18/2007
We just moved into the neighborhood with our 2 kids and fell in love with the food and the friendly staff. They brought crayons for the kids and we got to enjoy our food! We go back every weekend.
Charming and Delicious

The restaurant is charming and the wonderful baking smells reminded me of my grandmother's kitchen. The service was fast and cheerful and our breakfasts were perfectly prepared. This restaurant packs a lot into a very small space. I can't wait to return and try the lunch and dinner menus.
Just like Mother's

The cakes and pies just like Mother's, if she could bake. Simple and straight to the shoulder food. Nothing fancy but just good food. They deliver a great lunch too!
Consistently good, but slipping?

"Wonderful place. Fresh eggs, bacon and baked goods originate in a small kitchen to the side. Pies and cakes near the fron get your mouth watering. Charming seating area. Good coffee." That was my original review. Lately, though, I've started to take my breakfasts at Square Diner (same neighborhood, up a couple blocks). While S/D's coffee is inferior, their French Toast and sausage are far, far superior of late, and the value can't be beat. My expectations of Kitchenette run pretty high, almost as high as their prices. The grapefruit juice alone would bankrupt a single mother. My last meal there, a breakfast of french toast with strawberries, bacon, and the aforementioned juice, ran close to $20 with tip! Apart from the cost, the french toast was flat-out DREARY!! -- a bit flattened, not glistening with just-made freshness. I don't even recall it being that hot. The bacon was whatever, inferior to the stuff at Good Enough to Eat uptown. And of course, there was the jeweler's choice juice. I don't know if it's still worth it.

- If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
- Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
- Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
