This is a very good little diner with a friendly staff. Our first time there and we felt like part of the family. Food is very good especially the breakfast. We ate lunch there on our way to D.C. and stopped again on our way back home for breakfast. Service was excellent both times. It was packed on Sunday morning... More

We had a great breakfast a couple of months ago and thought we would go back today. This time ... staff still welcoming and friendly .. and restaurant was clean and pleasant. But the food was a different story. Breakfasts were served lukewarm and turkey sausages way overdone. Toast was just plain cold and potatoes undercooked. Not sure what that... More

Great place to grab a quality and inexpensive breakfast while checking out Shenandoah NP. They were able to easily accommodate a medium sized group with no wait/or reservation on a Sunday. Recommend to all.

LOVE this restaurant. Had the greek salad (1/2 salad was HUGE, can't imagine what a full-sized salad would be like) and LOVED it - dressing was delicious. Eager to order it again with grilled chicken. Breakfast is served all day, and my husband always gets that - and his omelette was HUGE and delicious too. Came with hash browns and... More

We went here for a quick snack, on our way to the Shenandoah Valley. The lady that served us was really nice, and they made us feel welcome. We asked if we could have a take out lunch so she kindly made us salads, mine with chicken which they put separately in foil for me, so the salad wouldn't get... More

We have been in the area for a week or so and have eaten here three time already. I think this must be the best place in town for breakfast/brunch. Friendly service and great food, you just fit right in with the locals - yes they all seem to eat here so that is recommendation in itself.

Stayed at the Quality inn across the road and was recommended this place for breakfast. We were not let down. Extremely friendly service from the moment we walked through the door and the breakfast was fabulous. Shame we do not live closer!!

When you enter this establishment you go back in time. Everyone knows each other. There is a theme of repeat customers. Great food and service. Take a table skip the booths for more room
