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

The GVCS has amazing comfort food at prices anyone can afford. My daughter and I shared 2 Eggs and Toast, a Short Stack of huge and fluffy pancakes, Biscuits & Gravy and a side of thick bacon plus a bottomless cup of coffee & lemonade for $15. This is in contrast to the bistro at our hotel, which featured a... More

Cheap, delicious food, a legit old diner. Service is fast, and the breakfast is awesome. I personally love the French toast.

Seems to be a favorite of locals. Old style diner in every way. Had to go with the Western Omelet since it was advertised. Quite good. Wife had blue berry pancakes. Two were the size of dinner plates and quite fluffy. Could have used more blue berries - but satisfying just the same. Don't expect gourmet - just simple, well... More

Very busy on weekends. We went there on a Tuesday morning and the place was also full. Got bar seats. Very mom and pop shop. Retro. I ordered hash browns and western omelette. Seemed to be very greasy. Nothing worth writing home. Probably won't be going back
