Late breakfast

Nice diner. Service was great. I wish I knew the waiter's name, he was very good. The eggs took a little long (which he complained about). They were a little bland.

Although in the past my experiences with this diner have been good, recently there seems to be a change in the way customers are treated.

The food is excellent here. No matter what meal you are here for you will not be disappointed. You really get a good portion for your money. There is something for everyone on their menu. Fast, Friendly Service. Give it a try.

Huge, huge menu. Large portions. Good service. Food usually comes out quickly. Small section of booths in front, more space in back with booths and tables. Great value for the money
