One of the smallest restaurants you will find in Cooperstown, but don't let the size fool you, it serves good food. We went during off peak hours (2:00 PM) so we were able to get a seat easily. My wife ordered the corned beef hash while I had the breakfast platter with a short stack of pancakes for my son.... More

We love diners and this looked perfect: small, friendly. However, service was abysmal. Had to ask where our four sandwiches were after 20 minutes. Took another 10 till food arrived. We were in full view of the two waitresses as the place is very cozy, but never made an effort to see where our order was. Excuse finally given was... More

Doesn't look like much from the outside, but the breakfast was OUTSTANDING. The biscuits and blueberry pancakes were some of the best I ahve ever had.

When we arrived there was a wait outside of this very small, but quaint, diner. A few locals said the food was the best in town and worth the wait. Personally, we felt it was mediocre, and the service was subpar. No one came back to check if our food was even okay, or if we wanted refills on our... More

I have family in Cooperstown, so I visit often. The diner is consistently the best breakfast in the village. The coffee is hot and served with a smile, the food is fresh and tastes home-made.

We ate here for breakfast. Showed up around 9am on a Saturday morning as a family of 5 and waited about 15 minutes for a table. It's a very small place and very informal. You seat yourself on the honor system where you wait outside and when a number of people walk out, your party walks in when it's your... More

We have been here many times over many years and plan our trip to have brunch here. It is a small diner with a line waiting for a table standing outside. The waitress has been there for years and is very efficient. The kitchen is small and orders are done sequentially. The tuna melt with sweet potato fries never disappoints.... More

We enjoyed our breakfast. This is a small place so you may have to wait outside for a seat. My son wanted to come here because he could order lunch. I had the bacon broccoli and cheddar omelet (special of the day). It came with raisin bread toast. It was my favorite. The others in the party had French toast,... More

This is a very small diner with great food. The staff was very friendly and the service great. If you're looking for a big burger, this is the place to go. We enjoyed eating here because it was quiet and we just wanted a sandwich.
