Friendly staff. Food is always good. We had the omelettes and pancakes. Delish! Would have given five stars but the building in and out is in need of some repairs.

.The Egg;s Benedict were said to be "phenomenal"by a special dinner guest. I found the Reuben sandwiches abundant and flavorful. This clean and friendly Diner left me with a heck of lot of nice menu choices ... next time!

I love diner food, and this place certainly kicks it up a notch. I have tried several items on the menu and I have never been disappointed. The meatloaf, patty melt, omelets, have all been amazing. The service is great and everyone is very friendly.

Loved it! My friends loved it! Great food, great people. I’m going back as many times as I can while I’m here. Just great all around and not pricey at all!

Needed a late breakfast and this place was reccommended. It seemed great but couldn't make a cheese and ham toasted sandwich! The food was ok and started to seem very typical for this area. I suppose I'm just not used to such heavy style breakfasts!
