Walking in to this restaurant was like going back in time. The menu was diverse and my colleagues and enjoyed a delicious breakfast. Will definitely revise when I'm back in town.

Dirty, run down, a menu from 70's with a staff to match. My wife ordered a Rueben that consisted of wheat toast with American cheese, corned beef, and thousand island dressing that was horrid. My wife took one bite only and I tried a bite,...More
