Very Good But.......

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... read more

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!

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.

I live in marina about 10 minutes out and whenever i feel like taking my girlfriend, family or friends to a good breakfast there is only one place I go to. The Nifty 50's cafe, everything is cooked from scratch and well made. It's definately a place that regulars go to, they have a book section where you can grab... More

My husband and I decided to try this diner for breakfast one morning. We moved to the area 6 months ago and the 50's Diner is now a favorite for the whole family. The food is great, and with reasonable prices you cant go wrong. The service is friendly, like going to my Aunts house for a meal. Breakfast or... More

This restaurant is a delight! The food is an excellent price, the portions are large, and it is delicious! My favorite so far is the strawberry waffles. The coffee is very good - and cheap! Better than the food is the service. The owners are friendly and the waitresses are very attentive. Your coffee cup will never be left empty!
