What a diner is supposed to be

Went I on a whim, mostly because of all the rave reviews. Food was delicious and creative. Was quoted 20 minute wait time, waited an hour. Service was fair.

If you ready breakfast, for any meal of the day you have to stop in. Breakfast Sandwich & flapjacks were great.

We had been meaning to try the Palace for a while but just finally made it in and boy do I wish we had tried it sooner! Funky little place, super-nice staff and DELICIOUS food. Amazing homemade corned beef hash, to-die-for potatoes, yummy egg dishes. Great bread and--rare for a diner--really good coffee! Will definitely be visiting again sometime soon!

The palace diner is the perfect blend of old school diner and new school hipster hang out. A great option for lunch or breakfast it's worth a drive!! The potatoes are amazing and the grapefruit is a must!
