Hard time finding a decent breakfast spot but thankfully we found this terrific diner. Clean, bright, and welcoming. Service was excellent. Had a sausage, apple, and cheddar omelette which was like a soufflé! Every thing was really well done, heading back this morning.

Stopped here for lunch and were pleasantly surprised at the friendly service and good food. Good value for money. Enjoyed traditional American food such as corned beef hash, Reuben, pancakes & burgers.

We went here for breakfast with a large group and had a really good breakfast. They have a great selection of traditional breakfast items. It's nothing fancy but they do breakfast right. The service was great!

Enjoy the 50's style diner décor and a reasonably priced breakfast. Lots of items from which to choose. We loved it.

Each time I visit this place it looks more and more rough around the edges. The booth seats are taped up and the overall look inside could use some love. That being said the staff was friendly and the food was good and it took...More
