The choices on the breakfast menu cannot be beaten. The home made corned beef hash is outstanding as are the omelettes and pancakes. Just delicious.

Was looking forward to visiting this "landmark" old-fashioned diner which had been picked as brunch spot for a family gathering. The food was okay, but didn't hold up to that vintage, homey excellence one has come to expect from such places. Would try somewhere else...More
