If I lived near this place, I'd probably go here a lot. The food is good. It's not fantastic gourmet food, it's just good diner food. It's also open 24 hours so it's perfect for night owls like myself. I was there for a late dinner with my husband and son. The waiter was pleasant, and patient as looked over... More

Friendly staff, traditional diner decor, reasonably priced. I had the pancakes with bacon...perfectly American. Go if you're in the area, don't go to the area especially.

We were looking for a big egg/bacon breakfast on a late Sunday morning and went here because we had passed by several times as its located a half block from the hotel we stayed in. Tradional American breakfast is generally retty simple meal so nothing to elaborate on but it was good, decent portion and fair prices. We were seated... More

We ended up at a table in the back room. The booths also looked cozy. Our server was attentive and pleasant. I had blueberry blintzes with sour cream and my wife had Belgian waffles. The blintzes were perfect, and the sour cream was ample and very fresh. I didn't have to ask my wife about the waffles with fresh berries... More

This was one of the restaurants recommended by our hotel. After eating there, I told the concierge that perhaps they should reconsider their recommendation... Our waiter was grumpy and had no personality at all. He was abrupt and somewhat rude. He was complaining to a coworker about some food product that had been out for "2 1/2 days" and said... More

Had breakfast here service and food was good but we found better. Location was close to our accomadation, which was an influencing factor as were the reviews. Would reommend if you don't want to search elsewhere.

My daughter and I stopped in for lunch while waiting for check-in time at our nearby hotel, ordering a cheeseburger and the french dip. Coming from Texas (where we love our beef!), I was pleasantly surprised with the food quality. We were waited on by an older gentleman who was quite friendly and engaging. Intrigued by the breakfast menu, we... More

Wraps are juicy, filter coffee is just as horrid as it's supposed to be. This place is doing it's job perfectly.

Got to-go to take back to our hotel. Really bad. Bland, hospital type food. Turkey meatloaf was awful. No amount of gravy could cover up. Mashed potatoes were unseasoned and tasteless. Go to Blooms up the street from this place.
