Blast from the past diner experience. We had a really tasty breakfast for about half the cost we paid at dunkin donuts the day before. Well worth the walk around the corner.

Decades old decor but friendly waitress and good food. It is cash only. Breakfast served all day. I ordered a 3egg omelette with bacon. Great portion size and the food was tasty, best of all the prices are cheap.

The food is great and cheap, but the cleanliness and appearance would make you think twice about eating there. Great diner food at a great price. Worth stopping by!
