Decent breakfast.

My wife and I went here for breakfast on a Sunday morning. We just had simple eggs and toast. We were seated promptly, service was fast and good. The food was unremarkable but we didn't have anything exotic. Had fresh orange juice which was delicious. The table next to us had a side of bacon which... read more

We go here for mini celebrations in the mornings. Great breakfast with the eggs done perfectly. Cheerful and efficient service.

I have been coming here since i was a little girl. The fresh squeezed orange juice has always been my favorite. The omlettes are AMAZING..... highly recommended along with the potatoes. Its a tight squeeze with the place being so small but definitely worth giving it a try if you have never eaten here. The cracker box also has amazing... More

I went with a friend and we both enjoyed the food, portions, value for the $ and serving staff. But beware...this a Cash/Checks Only operation. We were not aware of this, even after visiting their website. Its also not mentioned in the menus or anywhere inside the restaurant that they don't take credit/debit cards. It is only posted on the... More

I easily entered the packed, exceptionally clean, and friendly restaurant on a Thursday in February 2015. My counter seat was in front of the open grill and busy staff. By ordering the basic breakfast, I could observe the creation each item's quick and thorough preparation. Each item of toast, eggs, hash browns, et. all was done to perfection. However, the... More

Carson City icon diner, w/breakfast & lunch menu only. It's usually packed, & cramped tables right next to each other. Intimate dining, it ain't! Standard food fare, & you get plentiful helpings. Prices are average. I had an omelet & hashbrowns w/toast .... The toast was so dry & hard it cut the roof of my mouth! Omelet & hash... More

This is probably the best place in Carson City for breakfast. They have hardy portions and good prices. The service is always prompt and the food is fresh and well prepared. The only drawback is that on weekends you might have to wait a bit to get in.

Whenever I have visitors from out of town, this is where we go for breakfast. They only serve breakfast & lunch, so they always have a constant flow of customers coming and going. As you enter, the energy of the retro diner welcomes you with intoxicating smells from the grill, and warm, attentive service from the staff. The food is... More
