The food is wonderful! The banana bread French toast is the best choice. However the blueberry pancakes were delicious as well. My brother had the chocolate chip pancakes and he enjoyed them also. The food is fresh and the staff are wonderful. This is a cash only restaurant it has a sign on the entrance door FYI. Enjoy!

We thought the food was very good and the waitresses were friendly and very helpful. My husband and I both had sandwiches and my kids had breakfast foods. I thought the prices were fair for a touristy area.

Wonderful pancakes and atmosphere. We just love old diners. They are only open for breakfast and lunch, though.

Old school dinner look and feel, staff friendly, breakfast was good, hash was a little undercooked. Good stop for a quick bite before heading to a hike
