Best breakfast in Nevada!

I love this place and am a regular for breakfast. The portions are substantial and made with care. It has a real "Mom & Pop" feel to it. The coffee is great, but the fresh-squeezed orange juice is even better!

It's worth it. The food is great. It's a classic diner setup with good portions and ingredients, and it's worth the wait if you show up during Sat-Sun rush. Chicken fried steak and eggs with coffee. Do it. The waitsatff is attentive and never stop moving. Neither do the cooks who are front-and-center. I formerly worked close, and we ordered... More

Best breakfast in Carson City. This old diner is a must for any visitor. We like sitting at the counter and watch the cooks in action. Don't forget to bring cash. No credit cards accepted. Been here many times. A local favorite hidden hot spot.

This place is crowded because it's super delicious and reasonably priced! Service is excellent and atmosphere is family-like. I found tnis restaurant to be the "topping on the cake" with the day we were having! Very enjoyable indeed!!!

We had gone with family, not happy with food and service, forgot our toast we had to keep asking for coffee, and for the price of what you pay is not worth it. Will not go back.

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 was enormous and look... More

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
