We enjoyed breakfast however there are many other foods on the menu. Under the same ownership for close to thirty years, they must be doing something right. Try it you will not be disappointed.

If we hadn't been starving after finding 2 restaurants closed we would never have eaten here. Ordered the hot beef sandwich which was very salty. The fried chicken dinner was decent,although we weren't expecting 1 breaded children breast. They do have good mashed potatoes! Atmosphere was terrible, dark and dingy. Felt dirty and downstairs bathroom was subpar.

This is an old diner-type location in downtown Littleton. After we ordered, it took over 30 minutes for our food for two people to show up. The place wasn't busy at all, at 6:30 pm on a Tuesday. The turkey dinner meal was fine, but the chicken-fried steak was tough and inedible. After that long a wait, we didn't have... More

Stopped here for lunch on the way to Vermont. The place was very busy as there seemed to be a bus trip in, despite this the staff coped well and stayed polite. There were a couple of vegetarian options and I can really recommend the Veggie "chicken" wrap. The portions were huge and in hindsight we would have been better... More

Decent prices and decent food but long waits. Only had dinner here and waited forever to be given a menu. After ordering the wait didn't get any shorter. I could forgive the wait if the diner was busy but there were only 5 tables occupied.

This place isn't bad after a long day of travel and sight-seeing. Big portions - and good value. The Meatloaf is good. So is the cheeseburger club. Forgo the salad. It's skimpy and nothing great. Service was not the best. Slow, to be more precise. The coconut cream pie is a MUST-TRY. very good.

Very good service, food and value. I hada pulled pork sandwich, smothered in gravy with mashed potatoes and gravy and a three bean salad for 3.99. Wife had the same thing with fries cold slaw. The food was very plentiful and good. Total cost for lunch was 10.25 and it included my ice tea.

If you want home cooked food at a good price this is the place to stop. Our Pork Roast Sandwich special at $3.99 with 2 sides was very good. It wasn't gourmet but it was homemade and plentiful. The desserts looked great but we were too full to try one. Their breakfast menu looked good, also.
