Arrived at 8:30 Friday morning for breakfast. We had two people in our party. Our order was French toast with bacon and eggs, homefries, bacon and toast. It took OVER 45 minutes for us to receive our food. Never for drink refills. Will never return....More

This is a diner with excellent diner style food. Family owned and operated. Breakfast served until closing. Fun place as well. Daily specials. Not open for dinner.

This legendary restaurant is a gem. The breakfast "mess" is one of the best breakfasts ever. Mix all the breakfast staples into one mess on your plate. The servers are purposely mean, which is kinda comical.

Nothing fancy here just a good ol fashioned breakfast at reasonable prices. Typical local restaurant with quality food and no rushing to get you out. The omelet is my choice.
