Great, fresh, creative, well prepared breakfasts. Staff super friendly without being intrusive. Brisket Eggs Benedict...wow. Home made sausage....wow. Potatoes...wow.... You get the point. Everything seems to be done with love and caring....and I have never written a sentence like that before!

This teeny little place seats about 10 people at a single counter. Neat experience! Very busy on a Sunday morning but only had to wait about 10 minutes. You sit shoulder to shoulder with other people at the counter so a smelly, un-showered guy sitting next to you can really dampen the atmosphere. The food was good. Nothing special. Typical... More

We luckily found this place on Tripadvisor while heading between our hotel in Danvers and Boston. The woman and her brother we exceptionally nice to our 3 1/2 yr old, operating the train and honking horn to entertain him while we waited. My wife split the pancakes with the Special Butter with my Son. I ordered the Egg sandwich with... More

The food is yummy and they have a maple-butter that is delightful. However, it is pretty small and can quickly get crowded so be prepared to go early or to be shoulder to shoulder.

First time here! Would come back in a heart beat! Little diner that had a huge soul! The French toast was amazing, the beans were delish, and the staff was so wonderful and welcoming. I noticed that they remembered almost everyone's name as they walked in which says a lot about them! I love this place and I know now... More

This diner is a true gem. What it lacks in size, it more than makes up for in DELICIOUS food and personable staff. Seats are limited so it could be a wait, but it's most certainly worth it. I hope I have the opportunity to return in the future!

Young couple took this over 2 yrs ago. Specialty breakfast with Hungarian items and great traditional breakfast. Great diner experience. Alysia keeps the conversation going and does a great job with the schultzie special.

This is a DDD favourite and its always full. Dont let any of that put you off, its a great place to get some diner food which is prepared with attention. We had the hugarian sausage (home made) benedict and hash browns. Both were excellent. Go here, you will love it!
