Everyone should be able to make a simple breakfast. Bread, potatoes, bacon were mediocre. Eggs overeasy were ok. I would not return.

The staff remembers your name even so we are there only once a week on Friday morning. We have a variety of foods among us from a full breakfast to sweet rolls to specials and senior selections. The sweet rolls are very good and nice size swimming in butter. Senior breakfast seems to be the best deal with plenty and... More

good food for the price. Wish they'd do hashbrowns better (it's a preformed potato patty) but everything else is good. Friendly service.

I've been here a few times, usually just my husband and myself when our kids are in school, so we don't get to out often. This little diner is absolutely perfect, with delicious menu choices and friendly wait staff. We've only done breakfast and lunch, aren't even sure if dinner is available because of the limited times we can go... More

Great all around home cooked meals. Salads to sandwiches to full dinners. Pies, ice cream desserts. Great on a budget.

Through the years I've gone many times, but mainly breakfast. It's always been good, and it's a throwback to the past!

I went out to eat with my sons and they love buscuts and gravy. One son ordered it and it tasted horrible. We asked the waitress about it and she said it was an old recipe made with ham. It tasted like pure grease. It was the second time there. I always try places twice. It was worse the second... More

Think a local pre-Sharis American food place with fun servers & local owners. Good dinner specials, but the winners are at breakfast . . .

I had breakfast here and the food was very good. The atmosphere is like an old cafe and isn't updated or new at all, but the staff are very nice and the prices are very good. They have all sorts of choices of plates to choose from.

Thank Carolyn W
