Ate here while staying in town for a flight out of Philly. Place is a typical diner. Very expansive menu with something for everyone. We were a party of 10 including five girls from ages 7-17. Everyone found something to eat that they liked and the portion sizes were great. Friendly staff who were very accommodating. The bill was $107... More

Service is always good with friendly staff. Try the Florentine omelet for breakfast. Dinners are good as well with large portions.

Decided to order a Sandwich to go and it came out with no problems and very fast. Coffee cup was kept full, they came around every... More

Typical diner fare. Super slow service getting food to table, server very friendly and pleasant. Rest room a mess. Won't go back.

Do not let the exterior fool you! It is small and has simple decor, not flashy like most diners I have seen in my travels. The portions were just right to feed a hungry family and delicious. Everything looked fresh, not greasy. The diner was clean and calm.

Not far from the Philadelphia Airport we happened on the diner, which fit the bill for a quick and reasonable dinner. Not flashy, but seemed to be popular with the locals and I believe I saw a sign that said "Open 24 hrs." Typical diner comfort food with ample servings.

The food and service are consistent. They are OK. Cleanliness is fine. Being open 24 hours is s plus. Typical diner menu.
