Really good breakfast food. The service was better than the food. We really felt at home. The owner goes around to the tables and talks to you and welcomes you. Will go back!!!!!

The food is very good. They always serve breakfast, and have a nice variety of specials, including meats, veggies, or sandwiches. The waitress was very friendly. Overall it was a good experience.

The food at this diner is excellent. We go there whenever we are in San Pedro. They had run out of one of the specials when we went and waiter recommended off the menu. It was awesome.
