Always busy and welcoming.

Always has been a go to place when we're in the area. It's got a great counter, for that old time nostalgia. The Machca is excellent as is the chili verde. Great American omelets and scrambles. You never leave hungry that's for sure.

Typical breakfast establishment serving hearty portions. The usual breakfast menu, nothing fancy. They have a frequent diner program. Applaud them for their community service to those less fortunate.

If you like cinnamon rolls the size of your head freshly hot out of the oven dripping with icing and a pad of butter....that is just a side offering from your ginormous breakfast. Bring your appetite! Of course if you prefer pancakes or toast you could select that also. Large omelets, homemade corn beef hash, and so many more choices... More

Such a cute, little family style diner/eatery. Have only eaten breakfast here but everything was very good. Service has always been great, too.
