The food is good -- classic American fare. Good enough. What is supper yummy are the desserts. If you go, you much have one of the Pop Tart like treats. They are highly addictive. Great service!

I loved everything about this restaurant. The decor is like an upscale old-fashioned diner. The food was amazing (you HAVE to get a homemade "poptart" with your meal, trust me) and the service was great! Everyone at the table got a different flavor of "poptart"...More

Right, this place may not look like much, but DO NOT be fooled by it’s seemingly understated exterior - inside magic happens! We decided to go in the morning and between us ordered a Reuben sandwich and a grilled cheese. And my gosh, was that...More

From pure memory there were no specific gluten free options, but the menu is varied so gluten free I am sure would not be hard to order there.
