The Restaurant was packed as it was Easter Sunday. But the food was excellent and the service was great! The dessert case was staring at me the whole time and everything looked delicious. But I did not give into temptation.

This is an old-fashioned diner. No surprises, no great highs, but no problems either. Greek food is the best, turkey sandwiches are made with fresh turkey and the eggs are always a great bet. Nice to have in the neighborhood.

Food is usually great on the weekends. But food during the week is below average. Service depends on the server unfortunately no consistent service but not awful either. Great place to get breakfast on the weekend, my go to!!

We had the pastrami sandwich and the Reuben. Both were excellent! Price was reasonable and service was outstanding.
