The outside is warm but unassuming . It has a charm but a mystery as well . What lies inside isn't discoverable from the outside . Upon entering you are greeted warmly and feel as if you been there before . Comfortable and inviting .. Your eyes search for some sign of what lies ahead and you glance and see... More

We were there on a Monday...the cinnamon buns for $5.25/pc were stale (must have been left over from the weekend!)

Breakfast or lunch have not had a bad meal!!! There is always a nice little crowd so best bet is to get there a little earlier to beat the crowd!!!

We really love the Classic Diner and have truly never had a bad meal there. The best breakfast anywhere! Perfect eggs benedict and omelets, delicious scrapple, wonderful pancakes and french toast. It's all good. The portions are large and the plates are beautifully served. And Lunch is as good if not better than breakfast! Delicious milkshakes, french fries, salmon salad... More

I am not sure what the appeal of this place is, but I am not a fan. The parking is extremely limited, and you sit so close to the people next to you that I think I got pregnant by the guy at the next table. The food is ok, the servings are large, but so was the bill. Pancakes... More

Great food, great atmosphere! Be prepared to wait if you visit on the weekend or during lunch hours. But it's totally worth it!
