Best breakfasts ever!

Best breakfasts ever. When we leave there we plan on what we will get next time. The bacon is amazing. And their crab Benedict is so good. There are so many wonderful things on their menu. Our son brought us an order of bacon home and I told my husband we have to try this place. He complained all... read more

My husband and I stopped in for lunch on a weekday. We were seated in the back room. (I would advise against this) As we walked to our table from the front door, through the side room, we passed the bathrooms and understood where the cloying smell of bathroom disinfectant was coming from. Unfortunately, all the tables in the front... More

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

I cannot understand why this place is crowded............the food is OK but the prices are ridiculously HIGH ! 2 ppl for $40 for breakfast! We were there on a Monday...the cinnamon buns for $5.25/pc were stale (must have been left over from the weekend!) The atmosphere is crowded, noisy, clangy, & seats are hard & uncomfortable........just don't get why you... More

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!!!

Obviously i am be missing something be issue there are so many better places for breakfast around where you won't pay $20 bucks for an omelette and a coffee. Which I would mind paying... More

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
