While the parking is near impossible, the food is reasonably priced. Milkshakes were delicious and the thick french toast was so good and filling. Diner atmosphere and counter seats to accommodate the constant line of customers.

Enjoyed the old diner and decor along with the jukebox old tunes for selection. Took us back a few years. Food was good and normal fare for an old diner. Any age would enjoy it.

Everything here is amazing! My son declared the fried chicken as the best he has ever had. The coconut crewmen pie was divine as were the malts. The portions were big enough share.

When you arrive they will put your name on a list...The coffee shop is very busy, but I'm sure they will be able to accommodate your party of 4 in a reasonable aount of time
