My wife and I made this our daily breakfast spot during our Spring Break trip!

The service was consistently friendly and prompt. It is really well run....if anyone sees you with a need (empty glass, etc), they're all over it....super attentive! The atmosphere is fun and seems to have a local (or at least very laid b back" feel to it.

I made it a point to have a different Tex-Mex, or Mexican, themed breakfast platter each time. All in all, I had Machata, Breakfast Burrito, Huevos Rancheros, Carne Asada & Eggs, and a Tex-Mex Scramble. Each was really good and produced pretty quickly. All dishes were hot, generous portions, and had all the fixings (salsa, picante, avocado usually).

My wife is a little less adventurous, and had her usual scrambled eggs, or egg whites, with toast. She got an egg white omelet with bacon 1 time as well. She was delighted each time.

1 time we arrived late after a long hike and actually arrived at the door 5 minutes after they were supposed to close (2pm)....as we started to walk off, the manager came and got us and invited us in. Fantastic service.

We'll make this a regular stop on future trips.

This restaurant is always packed but if you have to wait for a table, the wait is short. Their pancake specials are incredible: typically banana or blueberry. You get a stack of 3 wheat (could be buckwheat) pancakes with syrup. You can order maple syrup for $2 extra. They serve a full range of meals. The servers are extremely busy but get to every table.

A breakfast and lunch diner that defines classic with its ambience, it's menu, and it's service.....all outstanding! Over the years, we have visited this terrific place several times. It never disappoints as the classic diner. Other places around the world attempt to create this "diner" look or experience but don't quite make it. This is an original and all aspects of the experience are superior....the tables and chairs, the staff, and the especially the food........highly recommended!

I usually wait for the grandkids so they can see what coffee shops/diners used to look like and sit on the stools at the counter to have a shake. The grandsons were so impressed that they got to have the metal "glass" to refill their shakes.

No grand kids this year so we went without them. Great staff, good food and reasonable prices, what more can you want? Can be pretty busy so you might have to wait to get in.

This is a fun place. Lot's of memorabilia, friendly staff, good food. The staff really hustle and seem to enjoy their work. I had the huevos rancheros and my wife had scrambled eqqs with home fries (including green bell pepper and onion) and thick bacon. Both were very good. The prices are very reasonable.
