“Worlds best omelette”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012 via mobile

We stopped for breakfast at this classic silver dinner. Two of our party ordered the omelette and they were declared the best ever. All the food was freshly made as we looked on. The staff were friendly and efficient. Great stop for breakfast.

“Outrageously good diner”

Not to be missed. This diner is exceptional. Open 24 hours. Dylan is friendly, fast, the food is a 10, and the place is unbelievably clean.

“Blows big city diners away”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2011 via mobile

We live in SF. Have eaten at Mel's, Black Bear, It's Tops, you name it. This diner blows them out of the water. The food was a 10. Seriously. We both had breakfast plates at 9 pm; real maple syrup, crisp bacon, fresh eggs. Saw toasted Philly cheese steaks sandwiches fly by. Dylan, the chef, was incredibly fast and friendly. Open 24 hours? In Dunsmuir? Unbelievable that we missed this for the past 5 years.

“Trip back to the 50s”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2011 via mobile

This restaurant is hidden on a hill in north dunsmuir. You'll be surprised to find a 50s diner open 24hrs a day. I had there route 66 Bacon burger and I gotta say it was awesome!!! My friend had the pulled pork sandwich and it is out of this world too!
