Breakfast is the best meal they serve... maybe lunch on a good day... but for sure NOT dinner. This is a popular Breakfast spot... and a short walk to Ocean Blvd and the beach after you meal is an added pleasure. I would only recommend Breakfast... other diner food is way to heavy and greasy.

Across the street from a lovely park and only a block from the ocean, this restaurant is very inviting and has a few sidewalk tables. The corn beef hash is homemade and is fantastic!

It's not often you see liver and onions on the menu any more, and it brought back memories of long ago with Mom. But this was done better than Mom did (sorry Mom), and I didn't have to help clean up. The greeting could have been a lot friendlier, but the service staff was great with their customers, the food... More

We needed breakfast early on a Sunday morning so we just drove along until we found a likely looking place. This one had a parking place right outside so in we went; good decision. The place is basic but attractive, with lots of window booths giving a view of the street (not the park, unfortunately, but there are tables out... More

Service was super friendly and the food was amazing; one of the house's favorite, the Halibut Fish and Chips, is out of this world; as well as the Shrimp and Chips. The waiter was friendly with our son and provided an amazing service to us all. We would have loved to go there for brunch to try the pull apart... More

The service was marginal and although we ordered off the Mother's Day "specials" menu, the food was dismal. We ordered the steak and rice pilaf to share, and while the steak was edible, the rice tasted as if it had gone bad. We were sharing the meal, and neither one of us could stomach the rice.

My partner and I are regulars and you can never go wrong. Food is good and the service is wonderful and friendly. The morning waitress, Cindy, is nick named the "Pancake Pimp". She pushes the Blueberry Pancakes in the morning and you can't go wrong, they are great. Check it out sometime....

We stopped in at this diner, simply because there was a parking place nearby. I ordered the fried halibut with fries, cole slaw and a salad. The halibut was a little dry, and the cole slaw was bland. The salad was the high point, with tasty blue cheese dressing, chopped carrots and broccoli, mixed in with the usual salad greens.... More

This is a regulars cafe. All the neighbors walk here to eat...some probably eat every meal here. I like the grilled chicken salad sandwich. Yummmmmy. They have great rolls and desserts you can purchase to take home too. The service is always spot on and very friendly folks. :)
