Why this is the #4 play is beyond me- it's the most pretentious and over-priced diner food you'll find on this side of the world so it's pretty befitting its in the DC burbs. Yes, they support local farmers, yes they provide "healthy selections" but it's simply not a diner. There's a certain quality to diners that the DC population... More

Great place for a farm-fresh family meal. Breakfast was spectacular. Fresh produce, creative dishes, and a pleasant kid-friendly atmosphere. The milkshakes are a must!

We stopped in as it looked like an interesting place. An old school diner that tries to use some local and organic ingredients. Good solid diner menu with all the typical things you would find plus some. I went with a classic burger, sweet potato fries, and shake choice and was very happy. The shake was served with the metal... More

Excellent breakfast, the coffee is great and the service very friendly. The manager even stopped by our table to check on our satisfaction. A terrific breakfast. We didn't walk away hungry, that is for sure. Look forward to returning on our annual trip to visit family in DC.

Have been to this diner in Rockville many times. It's always good, but never better than good. It really has that Jersey diner ambiance, which I like. It has a great variety of meals for breakfast. My favorite is the omelet, but the pancakes are good too. Home-fried potatoes are served with many of the meals and they are good... More

The food is always fresh and well prepared. The diner is fast becoming an institution in the Maryland area. You can always find something to suit everybody's taste, so it's great for any size group. The new menu features low cal - healthy options as well as typical burgers and fries and the Belgian waffles are fabulous for brunch.
