A hole-in-the-wall place. I had a great breakfast with hot coffee. The waitress was as sweet as pie. She cared for each patron as if they were all individual guests in her kitchen. I am fond of these kind of home-town places. If you want to look for negative things to say about this place you may find some. But... More

It doesn't more 'Americana' than this place - opened in the 50's (I think), breakfast is always fantastic, and the wait-staff are what you would expect in a diner - friendly, forthright and a little pushy - ha! Lots of locals/regulars eat here. Love it!

Meals seam pricey for the outward appearance, but the food is remarkable. Home cooked meals with people like Victoria that just make it such a treat. We have a neighbor who must always have a side of coleslaw to go, you will know why when you order it. Local family owned business, diner variety setting, you won't leave hungry, their... More
