I have not been here for 40 years. The restaurant is beautifully renovated, honoring the original history. The greek omlet was delicious. The wait staff was helpful and friendly. Next trip to Mount Vernon, I will definitely eat here.

Love this place now. Was gone for a while and this used-to-be dive has been re born! Not a place for drunken fools or morning hang-overs, but a place you can take your family. Thank you who ever did this. Will eat here again!
