We know it's here because the breakfast is outstanding. Love watching the old timers. Great staff, big food, not expensive.

I've been going here since I was a kid and now we take our kids here! The decor is the same which makes it feel like your going to grandma's house! It's good old school food. The portions are big and the prices are cheap. The staff is great, too. The Vagabond never lets us down.

Good food and service with smiling helpful waitresses. Might be a bit old fashioned, but that's the way I like it.

I was here last July 4th before the street fair and had just a small bite and they were pretty jam packed so I thought I'd save my review for another time which came about last Saturday morning. The two of us walked in to a half filled restaurant. The hostess seemed a little bit snobby when we were first... More
