Went here for a quick lunch one afternoon with the family. Lovely well kept diner (yes, a scratch or 2 here and there) with a lovely waitress and diner style made to order dishes. Fresh produce prepared with love. Wished we lived around the corner so we could visit more often....

We stopped for a burger and milkshake. We are locals, so have been here many times over the years. The food was still good, but both the bathroom and restaurant were somewhat dirty. Walls need paint, mirrors scratched. The overall feel was dingy. The service was top-notch, however.

I love this place for the large and varied breakfast menu, especially the French Toast! The portion is so large I usually share it ...that way I have room to enjoy the hash brown potatoes - be sure to ask for them extra crispy. Good coffee and a lively atmosphere and never a feeling of being rushed makes this a... More

Favorite breakfast place when making annual visit. A favorite is linguisa and eggs. Diner has a great selection of breakfast choices. Arrived at 11 am and was seated immediately in the almost packed restaurant. Service was friendly and professional. Clean, inviting diner with lots of charm. Nice hot coffee service. Great place!

I tried all of them, and they were all good quality... More

The menu has a large selection for breakfast, waffles, eggs, and a special section for eggs Benedict with a selection of different meats such as hash or other meats. It... More

This little diner holds some delicious treasures... shout out to Debbie, she is always happy to see us, likes her job, is people-savvy, and a damn good server, she feels more like a friend! Our group of 4 had the Turkey Dinner Blue Plate Special, Eggs Benedict, Reuben Sandwich, and Hash on My Hash Browns. We all enjoyed our meals... More

We've gone here several times for a quick, very casual breakfast or lunch. Good "Diner Food" right out of the 1950s. Eat at the fountain on a stool or in a comfy red vinyl booth. Pancakes, waffles, French toast, or lots of egg specials for breakfast. Burgers, hot beef or turkey sandwich with gravy, big milkshakes; typical "unhealthy but yummy"... More
