Had lunch there twice during our stay at Massanutten Resort. Food was very good, specially the Portobello omelette and the blueberry cream cheese French toast.

Our party of 7, including 2, kids had omelets, Reuben's, burgers and more. Food came fast, service was friendly, and we really enjoyed the homemade difference. We would come here again.

Nothing fancy. Just a really nice diner with a friendly staff. Perfect for Saturday morning breakfast of pancakes.

Went for breakfast with my spouse and younger kids. The breakfast burrito was really good and sausage gravy was better than normally at diners. The kids dug the chocolate pancakes. Got takeout for dinner and the Carnegie dog and burger was both solid. Also got a quesadilla which was nothing special. Definitely worth a visit.
