Had a delicious breakfast here, large portions you won't leave hungry. Also ordered lunch to go, which was great! Just for reference it's on street parking only.

I got the Eggs Benedict; huge portion--two pieces of toast, two poached eggs, large serving of roasted potatoes. Food was decent and price was good for the portion size. Feels like a diner, tastes like a diner.

we enjoyed brunch here on a Saturday afternoon. we were pleasantly surprised with the many choices. mostly breakfast, sandwiches and salads with some dinner choices. reminds me of a diner menu down jersey turnpike. counter to order and wait service from grill to table. outside seating too. open late. may you have tight lines wherever you may travel. bob

We've been going here now for many years (yes I am dating myself!) The same owner has had this for 30 years, David. If you haven't been in lately, you need to get in there! Still great quality food as you'd expect. I still love the eggs spinach Benedict, fish and chips and the cheese steak!

This place is a winner and it shows in how popular it is. You can also order food in advance via a phone app, which I recommend doing. The food menu is extensive. I had the chicken cheesesteak with home fries which was very tasty. I love my potatoes and these home fries were amazing. There is a decent amount... More

The staff here really hustle - but be prepared to wait a while as everything is prepared to order. We stopped by with friends and had a Caesar Salad, Ross' Turkey Sandwich (turkey, muenster & cranberry mayo - served hot), the Turkey BLT and the Pastrami sandwich. Everything was very good. It was a lovely day and we sat outside... More

The college guys frequent this restaurant for good food and generous portions. If we want to see our kids for breakfast - this spot is convenient - just 1 block off the main college street called Thayer St. The boys enjoy good quick orders of morning food- and they don't care about the venue style. It is clean and neat-... More

It's a fine, local place. You order and pay at the counter, then get a table. My omelette was of the rolled type, rather than my preferred frittata type, but fine.

"Diner" is not quite right…"Upscale" is definitely not right. I was drawn to it because other people characterized it that way to me. It is a hard-working breakfast kind of place… Where you order your food at the counter, pay, find a seat (very ordinary) and wait for your food to be brought to you. Food is good… Solid...big portions.... More
