Best breakfast around

Picture an old diner from the 60's... Large counter with only 6 1/2 booths. People line up on weekends for breakfast here. I love coming during the week to visit with the friendly staff. The owner comes out occasionally and offers brownies, fried mac & cheese bites, or mini cream soda floats. It's... read more

I came here based on other recommendations I saw on Yelp and I am really glad I did! This was probably the coolest restaurant ever! The owner Steve is amazing and needs to teach classes on how to run a restaurant. He served brownie bites while we were raising to each guest, gave us rubber ducks to take home as... More

This was a really quaint place. So much to look at and some unique things. They were packed on a Wednesday morning when the 4 of us went. The tables are small, so not a lot of elbow room. But, the food was really good. I had a ham and cheese omelet. It was so big, I could only eat... More

I heard the chicken and waffles were awesome. The waffle was very good, my husband's mexiacn omelette.. Big enough for 3 people was really good. French toast was delish! The chicken wings (which are the flats and drummett pieces) were old and splinter like...YUCK!! Sad part is tbat the seasoning of the wings was great! So I was a bit... More

Colorful--the restaurant inside and out as well as their owner. We braved the restaurant on a Sunday morning after a soccer game. My two kids (9 and 11) and I went and waited about 30 minutes to be seated in this small place that I had heard about from friends. The 30 minutes flew because the staff were friendly and... More

Went for Sunday Brunch. Waited about 45 minutes. Checked in at 11.15 for table of 5. Owner kept people happy passing trays of ice cream shooters, warm brownie squares & hot fried Mac n cheese wedges (how could you not be happy?) Once we got our table, service was fast & friendly. Steve the owner came by couple times to... More

Would I wait in line again for 35 minutes to get into this interesting eatery? Absolutely! Huge portions, fabulous taste treats, entertaining wait staff, an owner/manager who makes everyone smile and rubber ducks everywhere. Why? I haven't a clue, but it doesn't matter. Great food, reasonable prices and terrific people.

I don't understand how anyone could leave a bad review on this place. Yes the wait can be long because it's a tiny diner. We went at prime brunch time on a Sunday (11:30) and waited only 20 minutes. I also don't understand how anyone could call the manager here creepy or rude. You can tell this guy loves his... More

Food was good. We got lunch and they are more known for their breakfast. One guy passed out free rubber duckies and awesome ice cream. He was fun, energetic, and helpful. Apparently separate checks are too much to ask- our not so sugar n spice waitress said "are you kidding me" under her breath when another worker asked her to... More
