People were lined up outside on a Saturday morning. The food and service did not disappoint. I recommend the "Holland omelet" over the "Hashbrown omelet." Locals and tourists alike filled the place.

Step back in time... to a neat old style diner with wonderful food ( got to try the pancakes), and fantastic service. Yes, it's crowded, and the locals love it. A Perfect place for a hearty breakfast or lunch.

Give them a call and ask. We were just there and they are allergy friendly like always but didn't ask about gluten.
