“Avoid this place”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

We stopped by for a late Sunday morning breakfast and should have left when the place was 3 quarters empty and we could tell the people were not local. Staff were not friendly and we felt like we were intruding. We both had omelets and they were OK, mine had Hash fresh out of the can and was $7.50! Place was dirty and dusty

“Hello???”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

You walk in to a small town atmosphere with the waitress happy to chat with the counter folk...sounds good unless you sit in a booth and expect a cup of coffee, never mind a refill. I almost got up to get it myself , but didn't want to embarrass my table mates. Honestly don't remember the food I was so annoyed.

“NO Service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

We went in, picked a table... and sat... and sat ... and sat. Then we got up and left. Literally NO service.

“The Other Diner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

Substantial food, neighborhood atmosphere, you'll like it. Best for breakfast, but aren't most diners?

“Cheap n Dirty”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

We are locals and had not been here in a 8 years because of a previous bad experience. It has nit improved. The restaurant is filthy. Picture dingy walls adorned with stuffed Christmas bell decorations caked with dust. The booth edge near the wall had a charming ridge of built up filth from where the crumbs of diners past were pushed.
We had the breakfast bake. It was an egg and cheese square brick. Coffee tasted like burned Folgers.
Gross Gross Gross. The only saving grace was that it was cheap.
