Great diner

Late breakfast and early lunch for a colleague and I after a meeting. Really enjoyed the patty melt. Breakfast was huge. Friendly staff. Bathroom was a little sketchy.

This place has a lot of food selection. They have large servings and food tastes good. Going here for breakfast fills you up the rest of the day.

Met my family there for breakfast this morning. I had the French Toast Special with 2 eggs. & bacon. Good stuff! My sister had the scramble that looked bigger than my brothers omelet. Brother- in-law had pancakes. Everyone said what they had was good. Staff kept the coffee, water & soda coming. We'll be back.

We found this place via Google maps. The food was good. The prices were right. The owners worked very hard to make sure we were happy. I would go here again.

I had the souvlaki combo and my spouse had the shrimp version. There were three different meat portions on my plate, and each was delicious. Chicken, lamb, and beef were all... More

It's just like the diner/coffee shop setting you would see on TV. It's a family run business that is crowded with regulars seeking their large portions served in a friendly and service oriented setting. You're greeted with smiles and served quickly. They have a pretty large regular menu and daily specials, too. This was our second visit to San Jose... More

Greek owners Louie and Roulla, such great folks!! Away from home a long time and they treated me like family. Excellent menu, excellent food, even some excellent Greek dishes. Breakfast is Wow! Terri, Ninette, Ketchen,Julene, the Cooks. Sit at the bar, if you can. A comedy sitcom could be made of this Restaurant. Parking is sometimes an issue, but you... More
