“Don't Pass It By!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

We decided to try this little spot based on previous Trip Advisor reviews. It is quite small. The exterior is small but cute. We probably would have driven right past it if we had not known where to look.

When we entered at lunchtime the approximately 10-12 tables were almost all occupied. In spite of that, we were seated promptly and our orders taken soon thereafter. My husband was a bit bothered by the temperature inside (very warm) but we were able to shed down to Tshirts and then it was okay.

Breakfast is served all day and the selection is plentiful. We chose lunch foods, however. My husband ordered the Ukranian sausage and cheese sandwich and it was very tasty--some spice but not too much. I had the burger with bacon and mushrooms. Interesting sauce, fresh lettuce and tomato. Their breads are homemade--my bun was soft and excellent. The meat was a bit overcooked for me, but I prefer about medium in doneness. Realized after the fact that I wasn't asked how I wanted the burger prepared--would simply ask the next time.
We both sampled the chicken veggie soup and both of us liked it very much.

Service was good and with an unaffected friendliness.

We would definitely return.

“Unique and delectable diner!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Ignore the exterior of this diner and enjoy the homemade deliciousness this place has to offer! Tried the Popeye Eggs Benny with locally produced eggs and house made hollandaise sauce. It was perfect. I would highly recommend this place! Ukrainian food lovers will be in heaven with their homemade perogies. They serve all day breakfast so you have all day to try them out!

“Home made gem of a cafe.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013 via mobile

Everything is made on site from scratch. Including fresh baked bread in four varieties. The value and portions are unbeatable. Friendly service from the sisters and chef. I would recommend this hidden gem to anyone looking for all day breakfast or lunch.

“Sweet, Cozy place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Agree with all the reviews. Tried out this place due to the great reviews and was not disappointed. Fabulous burger with a homemade bun. We came near the end of the day, so we missed the cookies :(. Plan on returning for breakfast and hopefully a cookie. Atmosphere was calm and warm.
