Good old fashioned diner that has been in business since 1930s. Great for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Extensive menu with all diner staples. Good hot food at reasonable prices. No blitz or fanfare, just good food.

Really good homemade diner food. Great for breakfast and lunch. Haven’t had dinner there yet but it’s really good home cooking so expect it is as good as breakfast/lunch. Friendly staff.

A throw back in time !!! Great breakfast, lunch and OK dinner. A great place to meet old friends and to make new ones. A very comfortable feeling as soon as you walk through the door. Worth a try.
