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!

If we are ever unsatisfied, they immediately fix whatever is wrong. The place is family friendly and the prices are very reasonable. The soups are ALWAYS good. One visit and everyone knows your...

After reading glowing reviews in the local paper, we went to the Nifty 50's Cafe for breakfast. It is located in the spot where the Waffle Shop used to be. Same furnishings, a bit old, the benches for the booth very soft and ratty looking. Our waitress was very nice and helpful. We ordered the Special (3 eggs, 2 bacon,... More
