Traveling on business. This diner recommended by the motel desk clerk. Good recommendation. Typical diner food. Friendly staff. Had breakfast platter and it was too much to eat. Good coffee. All for about $14 including tip.

Stopped here during Memorial Day weekend b/c of the appealing highway billboard on I-95. I ordered a grilled chicken and vegetable (artichoke, etc.) pasta special.

The service certainly could be improved. The floor was gross and so much accumulated food that I slipped while being seated. When my husband got up to use... More
