Go there if your time is not worth anything.. For a Saturday or Sunday morning, the breakfast/brunch experience isn't great. The place has no parking. You stand outside or in the cold for 45 minutes (my average), wait about the same amount of time for the waitstaff to fill your orders as other people bump into your chair and step on your coat with its close quarters. The table and chair sometimes wobble, cleanliness is only fair, no caring waitress as they run around taking care of the busy place. Unlike other restaurants that I've reviewed, the Inn does have a few delicious dishes like Lemon Ricotta pancakes and Eggs benedict/mando. Unfortunately you really have to concentrate on the food cause that's all there is. Just when you think you're done with the meal and ready to head out, you have to wait another 20 minutes to pay your bill unless you have exact change and the checkout person allows you to cut the line, as she slowly work her dial-up credit card machine from the 1980's. If your time isn't worth money, you've found the right place. As a place that is long established in a college area with low prices, as well as one of the very few breakfast place around, the Inn has a strong foothold with young customers who had no choice, and now continues their patronage. Unfortunately due to that, they have became greedy and complacent as they herd customers around and does not update the place with changing times/demand. I think a Sunday breakfast at home or at any other breakfast place (like Pancake house and others) would prove to be a nicer and more relaxing experience than treated like cattles being very slowly herded around and packed in cramped quarters for feeding. But maybe some people are used to being treated that way.
Not that great. Bummer! We tried the The Inn based on a strong and glowing recommendation - the quality of food was poor, I would not recommend - sorry!
For Sundays Only. Sunday brunch at The Inn is fantastic - fresh, delicious, and inventive. The pancakes, waffles, and omelettes will make you forget about close quarters, a long wait, and harried waitstaff. Stay away the rest of the week when it reverts to its normal poorly prepared diner menu.
breakfast. The breakfast is the best I have ever had in a resturant. Everything is great and homemade. They even have real maple syrup,(for a price) to go with their outstanding pancakes. Crowded on the weekends.
Weekend breakfast ever is at the INN.
I recommend going there at leas one day of each weekend!
Just off the main mall, this cozy restaurant is easy to overlook, but its brilliant breakfasts are worth seeking out..
This place sometimes gets passed by: Maybe it's the unassuming wooden tables and rustic feel, smack in the middle the quirky Coventry quarter-mile. The small cozy dining room has big picture windows, perfect for observing the funky hubbub of the neighborhood with its mix of students, suburbanites and tattooed and pierced punks.
The tomato-based pastas, egg platters, burgers and other classic American entrees are solid. The house-recipe Bloody Mary is one of the best in town. On the weekends the breakfast and brunch selections are more elaborate and the crowds pile in throughout the morning and afternoon hours to feast on plates of scrambled eggs peppered with hunks of avocado and stacks of fluffy pancakes. Wash it down with a dark cup of the Inn's coffee.
Make friends with your neighbor. This restaurant gives new meaning to close quarters! Yes, some of the menu items are interesting on laminated plastic, but the food tends to disappoint-especially when handed from a snippy server and eaten literally within inches of another table's guests. Eat here if you have no need for privacy or quiet in your mornings.
The Best Bennie In Town!. If you like Eggs Benedict then you'll love The Inn! Great service, great atmosphere, great food. Worth the wait in line as far as I'm concerned!
Not Just for Breakfast!. An overall great restaurant. Frendly staff, good food and reasonably priced.
I love this place. I love eating at the Inn on Coventry the food is delicious, the service is good and it is in a wonderful location.
