Good food and nice servers. Some renovations have been completed which have helped the environment inside. Location is very convenient for JU students, just surrounded by some businesses and apartments that need major updates.

I have enjoyed this diner for years, food is always great. My last visit I tried something new - the corned beef hash, didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I would. I will return soon & look forward to finally trying the Waffles.
