Awesome food-service

We visited mid morning on a Tuesday. Very limited seating but we lucked out and found 4 seats together. Great hash and homemade kielbasha, french toast was also a big hit. Our server was super nice. Hot Fresh and Fast.

Amazing little diner. Has crazy ambiance. A real throwback. Rickety little stools that let u belly up to counter in what seems like an old school dining cart. Girlfriend got the strawberry Heath bar waffle with caramel maple cinammon sugar butter. Unreal. I had the Hungary eggs Benedict with house made Hungarian sausage (like linguica but better!) so great. It's... More

We visited this restaurant not knowing what to expect. The restaurant is the size of a train car! What a find! Enter and you are greeted with smiles and welcomed immediately. The food is awesome, great prices and you are made to feel like a new friend right from the start. At some point toward the end of our breakfast,... More

The menu has most of the usual stuff, the only unique thing was their Hungarian sausages which are quite good. This is a fun, small diner and the counter service is very efficient, friendly and outgoing.

Had a great breakfast with baked beans and huge pancake. Food was served up quickly and was delicious. Reasonable priced ($6.99) for breakfast special. Friendly staff who worked hard to ensure we had everything including drink refills. Will be back the next time I'm in Salem for business.

Great food, AMAZING service and a fun atmosphere with a toy train! This place is small so don't expect to god with your whole family. It was just my husband and I on a Tuesday late morning in September so we didn't have to wait. I would imagine its packed on the weekends but totally worth the wait!

We drove in after a red eye flight to Boston. Very welcoming, cozy environment. Homemade sausage not to be missed. The two young women serving us were so attentive and friendly.

The diner is small with 25 seats,,,but the food..attitude...waitstaff.and owners are large on service and quality..the breakfasts are the best I've had around the area ....pricing is modest and they will make something that's not on the menu .....Get there early for breakfast and lunch to get a seat....

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
