Went there for breakfast before flying out of Dulles. The facility is nice. The food was good but a simple omlette breakfast cost $ 17. There is an extensive menu here and this diner is open 24/7.

We were not in a mood for a restaurant, so we tried this deli. To our surprise, it was not your everyday old-fashioned deli, but rather a really nice place, with an extensive menu and great dessert selections (even though we did not order any).

We visit Herndon every year but have never tried this restaurant. WOW! The service was friendly and quick despite the crowd. But the food was absolutely amazing! I had the chicken Parmesan with pasta and salad. It was a large portion and just delicious. Before leaving we had to get cakes to go since they seem to be known for... More

We were sent here by their bakery and were disappointed. I walked into the diner thinking that the place would be like a 50s place and it is very swanky. The wait staff wear black bow ties and nicer table settings. We had a waitress that barely checked on us. The menu is a book. So much to choose from.... More

My only disappointment was that my stay wasn't longer so that I could try everything. The menu us HUUUUGE. The cakes and... More

The diner is less than a mile from the Marriott Dulles Suites. We arrived after 9 pm and had dinner. We had Greek style meals which were house specials. Included soup or salad main course with bread. This is reasonably-priced restaurant. We had breakfast with our son and his family the next day. You must try the harvest pancakes. Light... More

We walked in expecting a diner as advertised. I would call it more upscale diner. The food was good....a little more pricy than a diner but the nothing outrageous! The staff was attentive and we had no complaints with our sandwiches.
