This place has surprisingly great food at a good value. Everything is homemade especially desserts which comes with your meal. It is a surprisingly good value. If you're in the area you must try it.

This is a SOLID diner. I've lived 3 miles away from this place and never even knew it existed! The outside of the diner is very unassuming, I almost missed it even with GPS which is a shame because this place is a HIDDEN GEM. If you want really good diner food (especially the pancakes, other diners in the area... More

This was a bustling place. They quickly accommodated our large party and made sure our hearty breakfasts were out in time for us to relax before leaving to our scheduled event. The blueberry pancakes were filled with plump delicious fresh berries, and the sausage was very good. Our waitress was very nice and attentive. Prices were very reasonable and they... More

Years ago the Village Inn was a decent diner that many locals wen to eat. I actually stop going for a few years because I thought at the time that it was mediocre. But after renovating the dinning room and revamping the menu, I glad that I came back. The Village continues to a spot for locals to go eat... More

We enjoy visiting this restaurant and do so frequently. However, Sunday was probably our last! Every visit for breakfast we request the home fries to be " done well, burnt". This NEVER happens, even after sending them back to the kitchen. In fact, this week, the dish was sent back and the home fries returned lighter than the first set... More

Every time I've come here, the food has been fresh, tasty, quickly served, and plentiful. The waitresses are like the ones you remember from when you were a kid: "What can I get for you, honey?" I've found the service prompt, attentive, and thoughtful. It's a regular place for regular people, serving good food at good prices.
