This is your basic diner with an interesting interior and very good service. We did not have any of their specialty items and perhaps we would have been more impressed if we did. What we had was tasty but somewhat pricey.

Breakfast was fantastic. My husband ordered the chicken and waffles, I ordered the corn cakes. Both meals were amazing. The chicken was tender and the waffles fluffy. My corn cakes were packed with flavor. New favorite breakfast joint. Looking forward to going back.

Husband had the fried chicken with lavender honey. I had the fresh fettuccine, Tasso ham,mushroom, and peas in a Smokey tomato sauce with homemade sourdough bread. Absolutely delicious. Something you would expect from an upscale restaurant. Don’t be fooled by the outside!
