I finally drove by and didn't see a crowd waiting outside for a table. Now I know why they wait. The homemade spicy sausage patties and eggs were great. The accompanying home style potatoes were awesome. The service was exceptional and the prices were reasonable. The decor is 'different' and I will be back again (if the wait isn't too... More

Stopped in for a late dinner and this is a nice little West Coast and Mountain chain of Diners. The food was overflowing and the service was great. Only negative was the coffee was not that great even though a fresh pot. It had the Chicken Fried Steak Breakfast for dinner and it was overhanging the plate, could not finish... More

Cute diner with an updated menu. Breakfast all day. Pies and bakery items etc. But with a modern twist. The eggs benedict with shrimp and avocado were tasty. Hubby got fish and chips. Daughter got a shrimp Cobb salad. All were tasty and filling. Nice stop on our road trip cross country.

It's old and the decor and smell from the dirty carpet support my claim! The food is priced a bit higher than your garden variety diners. The food is below average. Salty, over cooked and poor quality of food made for a bad dinner. My son didn't eat, my husband was more upset with the poor service and I couldn't... More

Not a place to go if you are counting calories (not that I was). Food was average at best and pretty expensive. Expect to spend about $25/person for breakfast. Did not understand what the hype was about. The same stuff you can get at any diner, but with more grease and less flavor. Coffee was terrible and tasted like nothing.... More
