The staff was running around very busy as we came in with a lathe hockey group. This has traditional breakfast diner food. It was good and the staff did a good job. Cool thing is they have a drive thru.

Perfect. Small diner, with the noise and commotion integral to the setting. Great coffee ( a must!), friendly and efficient staff, perfectly cooked eggs and all that goes with them. Best hash browns in a long time. Well done, we'll be back for breakfast. There's...More

Most of our regulars call ahead and order, but you are more than welcome to drive right up to the window and ask for a menu. We look forward to seeing you again.
