I got their breakfast special - 2 slices of french toast, 2 eggs sunny side up, 1 large sausage and hash browns. It also came with hot tea. Each item was made to perfection. The next time I am in town I know where I will be eating.

I was there in mid July 2014 after being stranded in Harrisburg Airport thanks to Frontier Airlines. And i have no complaints Food was great and staff was very friendly! I had a bacon and cheese omelet and a Belgian waffle!

Came here around 10 on a Sunday morning. It was JAM PACKED, but we were seated within 15 minutes. Our waitress wasn't able to give great explanations of menu items, but was attentive and courteous. Food was above average. Real eggs, real cheese, real tasty. I'll go again!

Every time we've visited the area, I debated about coming here. I am so glad that this time we stopped. We came here for breakfast twice! It was fantastic! Very generous amounts of food! Loved their homefries! Make sure to stop!

We went for breakfast. I'm dairy free so my options are few. I did get the oatmeal (it was steel cut) and it was nice and creamy like it should be. My husband got the eggs benedict and he said they were good.

Friendly service and enormous portions. Typical diner fare, fairly priced. Long waits at peak times.

One of my favorite places since I just love the nostalgia of old-timey diners despite only being 21 years old. The vegetarian options are quite good as well. The desserts are worth saving room for!
