The place was ok. Food was good, coffee not so much. Cleanliness was questionable. It didn’t have a ‘pass’ for inspection, but simply said ‘rating pending.’

Really lovely diner, nice chilled atmosphere with a family run vibe. Visited 3 times in the week and was very happy with the delicious American breakfasts and efficient service. Will recommend! Come and open in London! Would make a killing!

Dress code is as you are very informal it's a diner not a formal type restaurant . Think you can make reservation and it's open all day if I remember rightly
