I was staying at the Comfort Inn located next to this diner, decided to walk over for dinner. I ordered the garden omelet minus the green peppers. The omelet was served with toast and hash browns. The omelet was huge, very tasty. It was so filling that I didn't even touch the hash browns. There was a large selection of... More

This diner was the alternative to the hotel's restaurant and Denny's during our stay. It was recommended by the staff at our hotel. They have breakfast specials before 11am, but we slept in late. That was okay because they serve breakfast all day. The service was adequate. The food was prepared within 5 minutes, but our eggs were cooked less... More

The comfort inn does not have a restaurant. This diner is footsteps away. A wide selection of dishes, pastries. Desserts and smels greeted me. There were cookies to give my great nephews if I did not eat them first for sale, I actually ate twice at this place as I was impressed by service and convenience

This is everything a diner should be! Coffee is great. Waitstaff is on top of their game. Had breakfast there three mornings in a row. I had a different omelet each day and they were fantastic. I ordered a side of bacon my last day and it the 4 strips were perfectly cooked and the bacon had a great smoked... More

I checked into the motel next door and placed an to go order for a Philly Cheesesteak. Not the best I have had in Philly but it was very tasty. They also offer baked goods so I picked up a blueberry muffin since I had a 6am flight the next morning...it sure tasted good!

Given the size of our group, food was hot, good and delivered on time. Floor was a little sticky when we walking on it.
