“Really nice staff, even when the A/C is broken!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

We stopped in for a cup of joe and their famous grilled sticky. The counter area didn't have A/C and it was one of their busiest weekends of the year. Nevertheless, the waitress and the guy who cashed us out were pleasant and fast. The sticky was to die for!

“The hardest part is choosing what to order!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Nice service. Great menu choices and great food. Don't forget to get a grilled sticky, too. Better yet, get a box to go!

“DECENT FOOD, TERRIBLE SERVICE”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

The restaurant was virtually empty but yet it still took our waitress 15 minutes to take our order. Not once did she ask us how our meal was, or if we needed anything. On the bright side food was good and fairly priced, but still hard to get past the terrible service.

“Average can be good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

The diner was clean and the food was good. It was standard diner food, but classic comfort food. In and out in a short time.

“Fun, Quick, Good for Late Night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

I have eaten here on a couple of occasions for breakfast and late night snacks. Breakfast is good and traditional homestyle food. The portions are generous. The service is very friendly and fast. Lots of college kids eating here as well as families. It's a classic old diner style so the atmosphere is fun, old fashioned. A local tradition!
