I don't agree with the person who said it's a greasy spoon. Just a nice down-to-earth, well-kept family diner with very friendly service. Don't expect gourmet or anything fancy.

Don't set your expectations too high. It's a decent breakfast at a reasonable price. The chili is, oddly enough, probably the worst I have ever had, though I know people who love it.

One of my favorites in Valpo. Great food, friendly service and nice place to eat and relax. I had the cinnamon swirl French toast and my wife had the strawberry pancakes. Food came out quickly and was terrific. Love going here.

Local, inexpensive, fast and friendly service, solidly decent food. Just came across it while on the road. What more could I ask for? I had the cinnamon swirl french toast and was very happy with it. Liked the family atmosphere.

Your average greasy spoon. They use too much oil and butter on everything. I've tried both breakfast and lunch here and I was not impressed.
