This is an old-fashioned American diner on Main Street in a very charming little town. Northimg but smiles and big portions here. Tiny place, expect a wait at breakfast time. Breakfast and lunch, closes at 2pm. Prices are not so great, but the food is.

Got a burger and onion rings. The onion rings were way too greasy. Service was friendly, though. xxxx

Hearty food, reasonable price, great service. Had a BLT with side salad and think the dressing was housemade. Kids loved their food too. Make the turn off at garberville if on the 101.
