Unassuming place, looks like an old house converted into a surprisingly good restaurant. Eat where the locals eat, right?! Well this is the place, we waited a short 5-10 minutes for a table on Saturday morning. The staff does a great job turning over tables,...More

Easy to miss this diner-it really is small and easily missed from the road. Find it-and-surprise-great food!!! Simple, honest, old fashioned American diner. Great burgers. Get the half sized omlette. The half sized is made with THREE eggs-the full sized is just enormous! Go smaller!...More

Awesome diner for breakfast, lunch or dinner! Service is quick and food is delicious. If you're there when it's busy, prepare to wait. It's tiny!! But don't let that deter you, service is quick and a spot usually opens up quickly.

This place is always packed but if you can grab a seat it's worth the effort. The food is great. I love the trash potatoes.

A small truck stop diner that has been serving up phenomenal breakfasts for as long as I can remember. No way will yu leave hungry! Omelets are a great choice, and the hashbrowns...fried to perfection on a sesaoned grill. A must try when visiting Norwalk.

Love that you can get breakfast whenever they are open. My favorite breakfast food place. I had a 1/2 Western omelet with hash browns and rye toast. My husband had their luncheon special of an egg salad and chicken noodle soup. Both delicious. Only open...More
