SMALL, rather rundown and not the cleanest but passable. Waitress was pleasant, food was average fare but good. Prices were reasonable.

Went here during the Hall of Fame induction in July. Food came quickly, although there was a line to get in. Great chicken and fries I ordered and the people, both working here and eating here, we're friendly and talkative. Great place to visit with fellow baseball fans! I make it a point to come here every year!

PEOPLE this is a must! Love the food here, breakfast is great and the burgers are out of this world! My husband still talks about how good it was. The people in this place are so nice, and we are so ready to move to the town... If its packed you definitely have to wait for a table! WORTH IT... More

This is a small diner that offers breakfast, lunch and dinner. There are about 5 tables and counter space. We ate breakfast at the Diner recently. The feta and tomato omelet was very good. The blueberry pancakes were full of blueberries and were delicious. Service was very good! I would recommend a stop at the Diner.

Visited on a Sunday early in the evening. Not very crowded. The food was OK, but not great - a reasonably good value for the price. Small place which seats 20 or so at one time. The best part of the experience was visiting with one of the regular customers, which gave us an opportunity to learn about the area... More

We ate two dinners here while in town for a four day weekend. It is very good food with generously sized portions. It is small but, even on an extremely busy weekend, we hardly had to wait at all. The service is friendly but in that traditional American diner kind of way.

We ate here during our recent visit to Cooperstown. We were able to get a table as soon as we walked in but there is not a whole lot of seating available. Others who came after us had to wait outside because there really is no waiting area inside. Food was pretty good. The burgers are HUGE! It's a nice... More

The seating capacity is minimal, but the food maxes it out. They specialize in burgers and in breakfast, and people will line up at times for a seat. Good portions at very reasonable prices make the wait worthwhile, and the small space is kind of unique and fun, too.

We ate at 4 different breakfast restaurants on 4 different mornings and this was my favorite of the 4. Good selection, good quality, service a little slow (I think only one waitress early on a Sunday morning). Definitely recommended for breakfast.
