Mom and Pop kind of place!

This is the closest breakfast place to where I live. The food is delicious and the portions are big. This is a great little family joint that you can have breakfast or lunch at. Not pricey at all. Everyone who works there is really nice.

Let me begin by saying that I have a small hangover. This sets the tone for the kind of breakfast I wanted. I got the gyro skillet. It has 4 eggs. Four. Plus the hashbrowns, a ton of feta and onions. And toast or pancakes. The husband got the gyro omelet. Clearly we wanted meaty, salty, heavy food. We did...and... More

Stopped by and had breakfast. Hadn't been here in years. Decent specials (with Juice included) that you won't find at the expensive breakfast joints on Randall Road. Coffee was decent and the server was always there with coffee. Will go again soon.

This has been a morning staple of ours for years. Good, large portioned breakfast's. And you can now order bloody mary's! My favorite dish is the haybailer (hash browns, eggs and ham).

We had breakfast here on a busy Sunday morning. We sat at the lunch counter so we wouldn't have to wait as long to set 5 of us. The food and service was excellent. Wide variety of breakfast choices. Would highly recommend.
