My husband and I were looking for a reasonable price lunch. I'm on a gluten free diet and I was skeptical about a diner having many options. I ordered the chef salad with dressing on the side. There is real ham and turkey not lunch meat. It's a large salad and they even have gluten free bread! Wonderful service

the train is awesome!! The food is diner perfect!! The staff always friendly. The train is small so there is not a lot of space to move a round but prefect for a bunch of friends or family.

We've been here twice now. Had the Bistro Benedict w muffin on side and fruit. It is amazing but ended up getting potatoes to soak up that good sauce. Their purple oatmeal is wonderful too. Hubby had meat loaf Benedict (deconstructed)... excellent meat loaf. Son had omelette and loved it. worth a wait

Thank Deb F
