Fantastic value and tasty breakfast

Handy spot on 11St that does great value breakfast options. Ate here rather than the hotel (Z hotel) and really enjoyed the food - tasty and massive portions - fills you up for the day. Down to earth, honest to goodness, proper diner.

This restaurant has been around since the 80's. if any of the reviewers were in their teens or older in the 80's then they would know that THIS is what a diner truly is.

Was an excellent Mom & Pop Diner with inexpensive food and extremely friendly service. You knew ordering a Cheese Burger Deluxe for $5 you were not getting Angus Beef but just a patty with a slice of american. I've worked in LIC for over 20 years and have frequent this Diner often. But alas it is now CLOSED and out... More

This place was inexpensive (really) and the food was decent and good. Did I mention inexpensive...my favorite was just a simple roll with butter, a throwback to my youth...it's a NY thing. But the breakfast menu had a nice variety with a no frills feel. I was only disappointed that it was closed on Sunday when we went back.
