This place is amazing. Bring cash but you won't need a lot. The food is American as can be with a few things you they added as specials. Never had anything didn't like. All fresh made as ordered. This is a family business front and back of it. Try it. Breakfast and lunch only.

This was trip advisor recommended. Gave it a try one morning. I am glad it was late morning because this tiny place was still crowded. Food was good. The staff was great. A true novelty. Just like an old fashioned diner.

I enjoyed my Reuben it was excellent , but my son's burger was small and unappetizing looking and the steak omelet my other son had was only ok.... I doubt I'll return
