Great!

Once you find this place, you'll be blown away by how it fits so much into such a small space. The room is decorated amazingly, with the friendliest service I've ever known, and great American classics on the menu.

This diner was decorated nicely, very clean and bright! Loved the Elvis memorabilia in the counter case. Now for the food, my eggs over medium were perfectly cooked, my bacon nice and crispy, waffle a little underdone😟 The service below par, the waitress never checked back to see if we were happy, and my companion didn't receive what she ordered....

Such unusual breakfasts with many funny names. Clean and bright. The service was quick and friendly. Prices were very fair. The decorations was all about cars. License plates, key curtains, match box cars, photos….. just a fun place. I would definitely stop there again.

Visited the diner while in town with family. I chose the corned beef hash which was excellent. Great family atmosphere. You could easily become a regular. My server made the experience above average, ask for Ashley when you drop in, you won't be disappointed . Great food , great service!

First off, breakfast and lunch, cash only. The food was excellent and innovative with moderate prices, especially for the Cape. My wife is vegan and was able to find some good choices. I am not and they had some good twists on old favorites such as lemon poppy pancakes and a variation on Eggs Benedict (Maybe it was Corny Benedict?)... More

Found this place on our first day on the Cape, and ate here 2 more times. The coffee was hot, the hash browns were just the way you like them, and the flapjacks melted in your mouth. A favorite with locals, so may be a short wait. Warm atmosphere, making it a ver pleasant experience
