Great little breakfast place. Goggled diners while shopping for a car on a Saturday morning. Found this place. Prices were cheap! Food was good and servers all friendly. If were ever back that way we'll go again and try the breakfast speciality called the mess. We had french toast and chipped beef and both were very good.

This is a nice diner with a good selection of food at good prices. I recommend "the mess, with meat" a mix of home fries, eggs and meat. Service is quick, staff friendly and there's an ATM inside if you need cash.

We had to pay this place a visit. It's a diner-like experience, with no frills. If you want eats to fill you up, this is the place. It's the original greasy spoon and your clothes will tell you that when you get home. Nice, cheerful servers. Low prices. Our table had not been cleaned properly. It's an experience - but... More

It is a diner, not a gourmet restaurant. Breakfast is what they do best and one may even call ahead for take out.

The food here is definitely not healthy and not sure how much grease is in it but the place smells from the cooking. Clean and nice for getting to know the locals but the food is nothing to write home about.

Sorry to say, our service was poor as a non- regular you watch the regular customers chat and get service before you. When we finally waited 20 minutes after our food was ordered.The food we received was the blandest food I ever tasted. My western omelet had no flavor it seen the eggs were cooked without salt or pepper and... More

Small local place for breakfast. Very good food, large portions. Love eating a "mess" which has a lot of items combined. Food is always hot when served. Reasonably priced - good coffee. Be prepared to wait to get in on the weekends.

Small place but worth waiting if there is a crowd. Good old fashioned breakfast diner with large servings, friendly people and right on the main strip in Downingtown. They only take cash but there is a cash machine on site. Booth, table and counter sitting. Enjoy.
