Breakfast was good, hash browns, eggs, toast. I can’t figure out why they can’t get the coffee right. Friendly and efficient service.

Good for what it is: an old-style diner at a hotel in a small town, food exactly like Denny's but with a bit more atmosphere. Of all the places to eat in Dunsmuir, CA, this is one of them.

Decided to give this Diner a chance, The Cook/slash waiter was quite strange and made some very snarky comments. The food(breakfast) was Ok but the pancakes tasted like the omelet. I don't beleive i would eat there again.

Gleaming chrome diner has booths Limited menu, wife had double BLT, was good, loads of fries. My Reuben was very good, also good fries. Just off I-5 is open 24 hours. Godsend at night in bad weather.

Best eggs ever, pancakes light and fluffy, bacon crispy and delicious plus hash browns excellent. This is a charming restaurant, like an old fashioned dinner. Well worth looking out for just outside Dunsmuir going north on 97. The service was also great and the staff...More

So cute outside and in pics on adverts, but what a greasy spoon. Service was okay; food was greasy and basic; menus table-side were filthy and needed a good wiping down, silverware was dirty. They were out of menu items. Much better places for breakfast...More

We ate her 2x because everything else closes at 9pm. Both times we came here, food was on point. Drawback is it can take longer for your meal if there are a few customers there at night but if you are the only one, its...More
