Small place good food with reasonable prices. They have daily lunch specials, but I never seem to get away from the omelette. also the club sandwich is enough to share. Service is always top notch, go ahead give it a try!

Outstanding waitstaff and the best pancakes and bacon in the City. Also, we can't seem to pass up on ordering the Western Omelet.

We love this little diner. We just happened to find it one day when exploring German Village. Since then we've been a dozen times. The staff is friendly. The food is delicious & reasonably priced. It's so old fashioned. We like to sit at the bar & watch the short order cook whip up our food. Our son LOVES the... More

Parking is not the easiest but we were lucky and got spot right across the street. Even if you have to walk a block or two it is worth every step. Had about a 40 minute wait and took advantage of the time to stroll around the neighborhood. This place is very small the staff is wonderful. Being out of... More

This is by far and away our favorite place for breakfast food. They have the best pancakes in town!! This is a tiny, tiny "hole in the wall" restaurant, who have a fierce, loyal customer following. Its always packed and lines outside the door. My husband and I typically will order breakfast at least once a week for takeout. Everything... More

This place tends to get very busy, so be prepared for a wait. Prices are reasonable, even for Columbus, and the food is good. The menu is diner-traditional (but not the extensive diner menu you'd get at a NE diner). Pancakes, omelets, hashbrowns. As in most diners, the coffee itself is passable at best, but when paired with some blueberry... More
