We had a late lunch here on a Saturday afternoon. Adorable home converted to a diner. Very warmly decorated and inviting...kind of like being at home. There were 2 menus, breakfast and lunch. We ordered sandwiches from the lunch menu. The grilled salmon blt with avocado and the grilled balsamic chicken and mozzarella both on brioche were delicious. Very large... More

Found this traveling down the road and pulled it. Great find. Very well designed take on a diner. Modern design, very clean and great ambiance. No touches over looked here. The four of us ordered omelets which were large and delicious. The waitress had a cheerful personality which matched the decor. The coffee was fantastic. Will be repeat customers next... More

Food was okay but overpriced. The fruit bowl was delicious and worth the money... other than that, we would not return. It was clean Inside. Service was good, nothing special.

Been here this morning on a friends and TripAdvisor's recommendation. Good choice. Had a wonderful breakfast, Eggs Benedict, classy, tasy, quality ingredience an all. Wish I could have taken more time, but I was up for a Livemeeting on a German timeline. Hope I can visit here again, but alas! flight is leaving tomorrow.

Great upscale diner. Not your real classic diner with silver facade, but good food, lots of it and good staff. Servers were attentive and easy to catch their eye if need be. Of the three in our part none could finish and the extra was taken to go. Coffee was good but OJ was not freash squeezed. I would definitely... More

Very busy, very noisy, but worth a short wait and the food was great. We celebrated a birthday, after inquiring about a BD cake, they said bring your own, which they served with a song. A friendly waiter staff, with a tremendous variety of egg variations. Trust me, roasted peppers, portobello mushrooms with egg whites was excellent. Each person at... More

We passed the Fraser Diner and should have stopped there for the real diner experience. Class is a very nice place, but it's not a typical "diner" as we diner trash expect. We just had snacks. My grandgirl had ice cream and I had an oatmeal raisin cookie which was huge, soft, fresh and warm - haven't had one better.

My husband and I LOVE this place. Diner, yes it is casual. But the food is beyond casual. Or mediocre. This is a great place for foodies for a slouchy Saturday or Sunday morning through the early afternoon. I actually hesitate writing this review because it's just going to make it harder to get a table. The turkey hash is... More

I'm in a larger family and I found that classic diner was cramped, decent food but like negatives outweighed the positives for me here

Stopped here on our way back home on a whim. Parking lot was packed so we had to park across the street. Wait for a table at noon on a Saturday was 20 minutes ... unless we sat outside. Outside seating was small, and we were served after two other parties of two that arrived after us. Agree with another... More
