Local food. Good value. Turkey club was massive. Breakfast burrito was delicious. Awesome service. Last of a dying breed of funky, fun hometown cafes.

Every town has a locally owned Diner that everyone goes to. In a world of faux facia corporate owned chains I find that sometimes an old greasy spoon is really what the world needs. Where the coffee is black and eggs, bacon and sausage is the main course. This one actually makes a wonderful omelette and you get your fill... More

Went there for lunch today. Do not go there if you are really hungry. ... there were a couple of empty tables but they still made us wait for 10 minutes before sitting us. There is no"simple" burger on the menu, so my husband ordered a cheeseburger without cheese. .... guess what, it was served as a cheeseburger, so he... More

Get there early! This is one busy place. Food is delicious. The staff all work together for the common goal of happy customers. The Breakfast Burrito was full of flavor and color. Blueberry Pancakes were incredible. And love the endless coffee. Certainly worth another visit.

This moderate size restaurant always has a full parking lot, because it doesn't disappoint. The portion sizes, food quality and presentation surprise for a fairly small casual cafe, and the service is always top notch. This is not a fancy restaurant, but it is immaculate. Anything on the breakfast menu is superb, and we can't wait to try lunch some... More

This place is a good old fashion greasy spoon. The food tastes home cooked, each plate is two meals big and very affordable. It can get very busy but is worth the wait (first come first serve) service is efficient.

Went in here for lunch during a shopping day. Just a small town cafe, doesn't look special but it is! Had the Buffalo Burger that they accidentally added avocado and cheese to! What a wonderful, juicy burger! Yum! Will definitely come back here again.
