New to the vegan diet, and this was a great introduction. I could walk here from my hotel, wasn't exactly sure what to expect, I ordered the orange 'chicken' and rice. It was so delicious I went back to the next day. Really enjoyed the meal here. The hostess was very welcoming, servers, well, it sort of depends who you get. One day I had a great server, very attentive, another day, much less attentive. Overall, great experience, I would absolutely eat here again and highly recommend it.

Very interesting take on brunch food done totally vegan. Not quite as good as the real thing. But not bad, and the fries are fabulous. Friendly service and reasonable prices.

I have eaten ad the CD for years. The food is not as good as it once was. I ate brunch on a Sunday recently and was disappointed. I had the tofu scramble. It was not very flavorful and not particularly appetizing looking (I eat tofu scramble often, so it was not for lack of knowing what the dish should taste like). The strawberry shake was very sweet, but good. Please bring back your old menu - it was so much better!!

This Diner looks like a diner and it says (on their wall) that have been on since 1982. Non-meat Diner, veggie place. But most of the menu says like wings, bacon, burgers - why on estehyppy does one need to call food resembling menty ones at all? Who is fooling who?
Thai Chili wings tasted sriracha alright, but the chewy rubbery consistency... sekamelska seeds on top... we surely tasted them, but did not finish the course. Titanic BLT Burger, seuran ’bacon’ and veggie seitan patty was beyound anything you could have had. It all tasted like it all had been deep fried in old oil, the the ’bacon’ disgusting rubber Finer Food naturally - unfortunately we did not see the clue here. Avokado Super Crunchy Sallad made our eyebrows Eide as the paneered avokado sluces looked like dead mice on the plate. The romano was excellent though. Sweet potatie french fries were edible. Beer was tasty.
The service personnel seemed to be busy or managed to look busy anywayz. They were not exactly ’Diner Oriented Staff’. Paid 64 $ for the worst veggie dinner -ever.
Might need to visit a second time, but not too tempted to repeat this fiasko.
