“Outstanding breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Great breakfast selection. Was promptly seated, food arrived quickly, was served hot, and server did a great job. Good sized portions as well. We ordered over hard eggs, inlets, sausage and toast. All was served exactly as ordered.

On the way out noticed the desert counter and what they had stocked looked awesome. Too bad we were there at breakfast.

If in the area - this is a must stop.

“Clone of Baker's Diner in Dillsburg, PA.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

Found this place while looking for a different place to eat other than the regular chains. The menu is the same as Baker's Diner in Dillsburg, PA. Same good food and good service.
