It's just that, and old fashioned diner with old fashioned people working the place. The cook and counter person is a pip, for sure. The food is predictable fare, but you can tell they try really hard to make ordinary food special. The place is quite clean as well. Their bakery items appear to be cooked there as well.

This tiny gem of a diner is a must! Everything made in house, delicious muffins the size of softballs & fresh donuts made by request, homemade bread. We had the daily croissant breakfast sandwich special. Incredible! Run, don't walk to this diner...like stepping back in time. A find!

Bar none, the best breakfast in Waterville. Skip Big G's, and drive a mile up the road for a delicious, homemade breakfast. Sit at the bar to watch Eva cook. Also, she's a boss.
