This is a very accessible downtown restaurant with good food. I like being able to have breakfast at any time. The meatloaf is good and the omelettes are very good.

Always crowded but worth it. Difficult if you're eating healthy, not that they don't have healthy foods but the temptation of hearty family food is overwhelming. Yes, I should have a fruit plate, oatmeal, and/or whole wheat toast; but the biscuits and gravy, bacon, sausage, and pancakes are a must.

Good lunch. This is a popular place, often with lines. We had lunch.....shrimp basket and a Philly cheesesteak with hush puppies. All were nicely prepared and very fresh. Overall a good experience.

This is a great spot for breakfast. Always lines out the door. They are allergy for me as they are so helpful with the menu. They do have long lines but they do move quickly. It is small.

A had breakfast at this restaurant with a friend who lives in Holland. We were seated quickly. I must say, the breakfast was amazing and not out of my budget. The waitress was friend and knowledgeable. I will have breakfast here whenever I'm in the area.

There is normally a line outside this small mom and pop diner, but inside it's comfortable, clean and the waiters are friendly. Their cinnamon rolls are a must. Sitting at the counter gives you the feel of going back in time. Prices are good, food is usually pretty good and the service was stellar.

They have wonderful omelets and their cinnamon rolls are HUGE! You can have one instead of toast if you want.

This is a great local spot for breakfast. Food is fresh, homemade, and spot on for a reasonable price. Portions are large and the waitstaff is friendly. It can get busy, especially on a weekend though.

Get there early or be prepared to wait. This is a hometown favorite, and it fills up in a hurry on the weekends. Great food, great prices.
