Lovely breakfast.

We met an old friend here for breakfast yesterday. The potato pancakes were excellent. I could have eaten one more though. My mate said the coffee wasn't very good. Bitter and yet weak. We bought a few cookies, probably would've bought more baked goods but have limited space in our camper.

Granted, we came in about 12.30 for family get-together along with everyone else in the world it seems. Had a 45 minute wait, got seated and waited and waited for our waitress. She was nice, but was rarely seen. And, then got the order wrong for my hubby. We were all done with our meals when his right order finally... More

Great pie, homemade meals, decent service. It seems like the homier dishes are the best - meatloaf, breakfasts, chicken dinner.

There is a reason why people wait to eat here. We only waited about 15 minutes, but it was really worth the wait. We had soup and sandwiches and were delighted. They are famous for their pies, but we were too full for dessert. However, I returned and purchased pies for a family reunion a few days later. The compliments... More

Any way you spell it, go for the pie. Yummy with bonus nerd humor. Any and all pies are great. Excellent fried chicken special. Craft beer. This is one cool diner.

I had not had cherry pie in years, and what I had here was fabulous, better than I could make myself. Normally the crust is the weakest factor, but here, the crust was light, flaky and utterly delicious. I had mine warmed and a la mode. Wow! The other choices looked great, too. I'm definitely going back, and trying not... More

Stopped by a for breakfast/lunch after an appointment in the area. Ordered a Bloody Mary which was good and the Carnivore which was good. Also ordered the potato pancakes which were a bit soggy. I would definitely not order them again Service was fine as was the atmosphere.. Probably check our something else next time were in the area.

If you're looking for good, comfort food, this diner is the spot! Good anytime of day, but we enjoy breakfast there. Meatloaf is good, too. A little quirky, 50's flair, and delicious pie!

The breakfast food is good. Be prepared for a wait on Sunday's tho. Great portions - you won't leave hungry.
