They have a variety of foods such as Dutch food, sandwiches, salads, burgers, and breakfast foods. They offer a children's menu as well as a senior menu. You can either... read more

Based on the great reviews I have to say this diner must have some loyal local patrons. We stopped here last evening and we were anything but pleased. The service was very slow and the waitress was not very personable. I ordered a BLT, my daughter had a Reuben and my husband ordered a cheeseburger. I requested a slice of... More

Chipped Beef on toast is outstanding, most places give you all cream and very little meat. Very different here. Good food and customer service. Great coffee. Always busy.

Stopped in at 7 am after full night of plowing. This was my third time for breakfast. Ham and cheese omelet was fantastic. Perfect cooking, ingredients great quality, and HOT. Home fries are sliced potatoes fried, a little on greasy side but very good. Need just a bit more time in the pan. Very good coffee. Service was fast, courteous... More

This restaurant owned by a friend who has had it for awhile. She is soon going to retire and will sell. Excellent food, service, and friendly patrons. A local eatery where friends gather to talk and eat. Highly recommended!!

Been there twice for breakfast ... not sure how you can serve eggs and pancakes with little or no flavor. It appears they are known for their sausage and gravy over biscuits. Menu lacks any kind of uniqueness. Not one of our favorite places.
