Decent breakfast, nothing special

It's a fine, local place. You order and pay at the counter, then get a table. My omelette was of the rolled type, rather than my preferred frittata type, but fine.

"Diner" is not quite right…"Upscale" is definitely not right. I was drawn to it because other people characterized it that way to me. It is a hard-working breakfast kind of place… Where you order your food at the counter, pay, find a seat (very ordinary) and wait for your food to be brought to you. Food is good… Solid...big portions.... More

Good location for a quick bite. Large portions for the price - a decent value. Service was fast, friendly and efficient. Typical "breakfast place" decor. Parking can be tough.

Hands down the best breakfast ever. I was a little skeptical when I walked in because you have to go up to the counter and order your own food. But after my initial hesitation I found it was amazing. They bring the food out to your table and bring coffee refills. I had the pancakes and bacon...awesome. My family had... More

Stopped here on a recommendation and it did not disappoint. You order from the counter and the food is brought to your table. Breakfast was delicious with generous portions. Definitely a must stop place to eat.

Good food, good service, good price! Very yummy breakfast! I go to this restaurant once a week, I always try different dish each time, so far, I still have not found any item of food I don't like, am I too easy?! I really love this restaurant, my children love it very much too.
