It’s crazy crowded on the weekends, long waits but once you sit down, you get why. The food is always great and the service is friendly and once they get to know you, they don’t forget. Go and enjoy!

Everything you want in a diner breakfast, plus friendly service. I don't understand some of the negative reviews here -- it's perfectly fine. Expansive menu, some specials, good coffee. Would be a good location for Jerry Seinfeld's "Comedians in Cars . . ."

I have never had a bad meal here and the fact that they offer scrapple is a huge plus with my husband.

They do everything in the morning right here. Only been here for breakfast, but would come back every time, any time.
