Food is great here but best bring your own cash. The restaurant doesn't accept debit or credit and their atm inside is known to have loiterers. The business doesn't care enough about the atm to keep an eye on it at all times to prevent this sort of thing, but this morning when I went in for breakfast there was... More

I recently visited my daughter in CT., and we had breakfast here several times in the 2 weeks that I was there. Walking in, you are taken back in time to a small diner, family owned, friendly environment feeling. Before you even order you can go right up and serve yourself coffee just like you would at home. Our food,... More
