My family often visits this restaurant for breakfast, it is probably the best value option in HP. Good food and an always friendly service.

Well, what do you expect, outstanding food? Nay. Its pretty good. I ordered a kosher corn beef sandwhich. It wasn't piled up as advertised, it wasn't oustanding, it just had a few layers of hot corn beef. I had to ask for mustard. My view on this? Pretty good. You know when you put food and you mouth and think:... More

The menu is quite extensive for both breakfast and lunch. The food is generally good but not great. The service is good. Overall, the décor needs refreshing. Sit in a booth, as the chairs are too low for the average person. There are better places in Highland Park for breakfast and lunch.

Breakfast food is good to eat here. My barbecue sandwich was almost uneatable. I am not one to give poor reviews but this was awful food. I admit i can be picky. Sweet pickles included with this sandwich. I prefer sour pickles. The kids, had wonderful pancakes they loved. My daughter had a decent BLT with steak sized French fries.... More

I used to ride my bike here. They have great omlets and high quality food. These fill me up so much I don't need a lunch.

I've been meeting friends here for years during my frequent visits to my childhood hometown. This is where we meet Saturdayand/or Sunday morning. It's been so many years the owner Peter and staff recognize me. Service is great; staff attentive.

There are a lot of choices on the menu including Jewish deli favorites. You can't go wrong with the omelets and the fresh chopped corn beef hash. The breads are good and you are well satisfied with the classic American breakfast and lunches.
