Great food and great service at a fair price

The title says it all...the food is good, everything is fresh (not frozen), and the coffee is good. It's the only place in town I'll go for breakfast. (I've had lunch here, which is good...but nothing beats the breakfast.)

We were in town visiting friends and they took us here for breakfast. If you're looking for atmosphere, don't look here. But if you're looking for good food and friendly service, this is your place. The four of us all ordered eggs of some fashion with hash browns and coffee and even with a 25% tip, the bill was only... More

If you are looking for a fancy-schmancy place to eat, this is not it. This is a small diner, the epitome of a hole-in-the-wall with friendly staff, regular customers, and good food. It's been around for many, many years--well before Sun Prairie was even half the population it is now. I've only had breakfast which is served all day and... More

The wait staff was extremely pleasant. My husband and I never had to worry about running out of coffee. All the staff helped, not just the waitress. The food was delicious, I had the greek omelet with lamb and tkatziki sauce. The eggs were cooked perfectly and it wasn't greasy.

veggie eggs benedict prepared to perfection - hash browns divine. Love the low key atmosphere. Staff was attentive, friendly, speedy & best part - genuinely kind to our rowdy children. Cant wait to go back!

This is a great neighborhood diner with lots of choices and good old fashioned service. Definitely worth a stop if you're in the area or on the road.

Breakfast menu has a lot to pick from and it is fantastic. We brought in a group of 15 and everyone fit just fine. Service was friendly and quick. Great value as well. I will be back here for sure next time in the area.
