Been going to North Forest for 20+ years - once had the best breakfast in town. These last years we started wondering about the general overall quality of the place from cleanliness to non-availability of basic menu items. Today’s visit, after church: upon sitting down...More

I ordered the daily special which was an Italian grinder with fries. The sandwich had plenty of lunchmeat, fresh tomatoes, lettuce cheese and onion. All on a grilled roll and the fries were nice and crisp. The place is small but if I lived near...More

My aunt's favorite restaurant. Large breakfasts, well prepared and a good value. Quirky atmosphere but fun.

The place is a dive from both inside and out. That being said, the food was decent, the staff are phenomenal, and the prices are very reasonable. The place is very small and seating is limited so probably not the best choice if you are...More

This is that small diner with good food, not very big, good service that you have been looking for! We were just driving thru town heading north and decided to stop. Nothing we were disappointed about. We would stop again.
