Where the staff all know your name by the 2nd visit. Car culture on display and motif adds to casual dining with home cooking taste.

Professional waitress, knew what I was going to ask before I said anything. Food is above average diner food. My husband got opened faced roast beef, with cottage cheese. My son ordered a patti melt with fries. I ordered the Reuben with sweet potato fries.

We had breakfast on a Saturday morning and thoroughly enjoyed the food in the wonderful surroundings of the 1950's. It was not only the lovely staff but also the other diners that made the visit great fun.

Breakfast spot deluxe. Many visits and every time good. The wait staff here even ask how you want your bacon cooked. Fresh local berries in pancakes and great service. Nothing here disappointed me. Almost every weekend for two months while in the area. Old style cooking and staff hanging on to quality.

Awesome service!!!! Very outgoing friendly and fun. Food was good, servings were hefty (we could not eat everything). The service will keep me going back.

The waitresses are definitely part of the charm of this place. They are very friendly and you coffee cup is always full. Great food, lots of options, I cant imagine anyone would be able to not find something they would like on the menu. Country fried steak is a great choice!

I was looking for a place to have breakfast after an early morning round of golf. I wanted some place local and Nifty 50 Cafe was the place I chose. It looks average and it could use some sprucing up but I have found that sometimes those are the best places to eat. It was about half full and there... More

Reminds me of a place my grandma loved. Everything was average. A place that you an be assured will be the same every time. Thought It was a little pricey for the quality but not complaining. Service was warm and friendly as it is a place where the locals eat.
