A popular diner between two strong neighborhoods makes this a good choice. Excellent menu with wide variety, fast & friendly service, reasonably priced, clearly superior as better diner food. Proprietor is a strong community supporter.

Always a great choice especially for breakfast or brunch.! This place is a hidden gem in Chestnut Hill. The facade is very unassuming but it has wowed me consistently. The interior is quaint & charming. The smoke salmon bagel, stuffed French toast, and hot chocolate...More
