Love the place. Great home made food. The atmosphere is fun. Staff is very friendly and helpful. It's like a "Happy Days" show. First place I think of when going out for breakfast.

Nice little diner. Good food and fun atmosphere. Extra HOT coffee :-). Bring cash or an ATM card - because they don't take credit cards.
