The menu is huge and there are additional specials. Four of us enjoyed our meal very much. Carol had a seasonal peach dish with ginger sauce over biscuit, with poached eggs. She asked for the eggs with the yolks runny and they came out just right. The down side was the under ripe peach, which was hard without much flavor.... More

We had bacon, eggs and hashbrowns, plus a serving of their French toast. Was not impressed w hash browns, French toast on the... More

Well staffed by great energy serving a great lunch. Their peach shake was awesome. The wrap and Tuna melt both delish. The menu had some great sounding choices. We want to go back for the spinach salad.

We thoroughly enjoyed a taste of breakfast and lunch! No complaints. The wait was short, the seating is plentiful. Our server was so attentive but not too much, we were able to chat without interruption. The only down side was it was a bit stuffy..not much air flow on a warm day. I We will pay them another visit when... More

Reasonably fast service. A good place for conversation. Not fancy but has a diner feel. Am a frequent visitor.

I really was disappointed after hearing so many long time Salem residents crow about this place. The interior was dirty, tired and run down, glad I couldn't see inside the kitchen. Their famous stuffed french toast was dry, tired and run down like the place itself. Won't be back.

Great food, worth any wait, worth driving from I-5 over to restaurant. Great coffee, servers were always filling coffee or water glasses. Seven in our party and we all were pleased. Can't wait to go again!
