Excellent menu choices with diner fast service. Easy on and off from 84. Clean and excellent service. A mainstay in Newtown.

I have ate at this diner many times and have always got great food and service. If you like spaghetti and meatballs this place gives you plenty and it tastes great. Easy access to I-84.

Not a French Restaurant but just good honest American Diner Food and you get plenty. Our group had burgers, hot roast beef sandwiches and fish n' chips. Everyone was happy. Didn't try any but all the baked goodies are done on premises and looked good.

Used to go during the 90's when they closed late. Food was always excellent but the service wasn't too good, but that was 20 years ago lol.

We stopped here for breakfast on our way to NH. My wife had waffles topped with strawberries. I had two eggs over easy with rye toast, home fries and blueberry blintzes. My only complaint was they put my eggs over the blintzes which left the blintzes with the egg taste! Had they put the blintzes on a separate plate, my... More

What a treat to have someplace to eat when you are returning from a long road trip and haven't had time to stop for food! There is everything you could want and then some on the extensive menu and you can have breakfast anytime....nothing like eggs and bacon at midnight. Try some of the Greek specialties, they are as authentic... More

Had gone here before and liked it. Came back and hated it. Got a salad with Avocado on it. Sounded good. But was not ripe and flavorless. The salad was huge, but not much tasted good on it. Was so disappointed. Won't go back again.
