“Breakfasts are much better than the over-priced dinners”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

We dined here for breakfast 3 times since November and liked our food. Today we stopped by for an early supper. It was such a disappointment. My stuffed peppers were so overcooked, tasteless and waterlogged as were the carrots & broccoli. The mashed potatoes were barely warm. My husband's hot turkey sandwich was bland and came with lukewarm mashed potatoes and the same overcooked veggies. Add 2 sodas and we wasted $35.00 plus tip. For that price we could have had a wonderfully cooked meal elsewhere. We will never go back.

“Special Breakfast Spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

A bit expensive to be a regular spot. Food, however, is excellent, for the most part. Not very busy for a Saturday morning, but Chips is right down the street. I had a bowl of oatmeal with brown sugar. If you want oatmeal, get it plain and they will bring you what you ask for to add to it. The menu item I asked for had bananas included and I asked those not be included, but there were a few pieces of bananas in there (I just pulled them out - no biggie). I also asked for cinnamon, which they brought in a little cup. Brown sugar was on the side, too. My husband got the chili omelette (Texas?) and he ate it all. Get a homemade donut! So worth getting oatmeal to have a cinnamon sugar donut as well. Service was good, did have to ask for more coffee - not sure if that's an oversight or something the management does.

“OK diner...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

This diner was just OK. It was dead when we went so we had good service and the food was good, but I wasn't wowed by it. But, definitely a good value.

“Great Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

There have been two prior diners at this location which went out of business - for good reason. During the post Sandy power outage, this new diner had power so we decided to give it a try. The breakfast specials all sounded great but we went for whole great pancakes with fresh blueberries and French toast with fresh strawberries. Both dishes were well prepared and very tasty. The free wifi was a great convenience. Everyone at the diner was helpful, even offering to let us come back to charge our phones. We'll be back to check out the lunch menu.
