They have excellent homemade soups. I've tried several meals here and everything is good. Diner is open for breakfast and lunch, not for dinner.

12th Street Cafe is the closet thing you will find to diner food south of Jersey. If you are from the Greater Northeast this is the breakfast location you have been looking for. Felt like home...

I don't think it is owned by Gus anymore...Looked like all new people to me today. Enjoyed a nice lunch. A bowl of Bean soup...homemade and a BLT..Along with a cup of coffee (yes refills) all for just over $8....plus a tip...Can't beat that price and good food anywhere else in the city
