Maybe we should have gone for breakfast--maybe things are better in the morning. But by 1pm when we arrived, the staff was definitely in a "we are closing soon" mood. The first clue was a sign that directed you to "pick up a menu and find a clean table--and don't cause any problems." My husband ordered the chicken, only for... More

Their version of mini pancakes. Light fluffy with crispy edges. Bacon is thick and tasty. Nice find. A must try.

Very friendly staff to greet you and always to assist in heating coffee. Fast to bring the meal. The best bacon in town with the hugest pancakes! Seems the scrambled eggs had a different creamy flavor also like a bit of buttermilk mixed in. Prices were not bad at all and I had to take some home as well. Hillary... More

The previous reviews are true - the pancakes here are as big as your head. They will fill you up. Try the Mancakes if you are truly brave, but be warned it is for professional eaters only. Hot Metal is in my heavy rotation for a weekend breakfast. My favorite is the Egg White Scramble, 5 whites with tomatoes, peppers,... More

This is a cool diner with great food. We were very happy with our soft taco eggs, french toast and pancakes. On Sundays a band plays a mellow jazz vibe which made it all the better. The staff was friendly and made us feel welcome. We prefer eating at the counter. The appliances behind the counter are covered with humorous... More

Stopped in after a trip to the Doctor with my wife. Good coffee great friendly service and a breakfast burrito that was out of this world. Too much too eat at one sitting but I definitely put a big dent in it. The friendly laid back service sets it apart from other diners. Will definitely try it again soon.
