“Great food big portions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

Small diner but great food. The Reuben was great!
Prices were cheap
Booths were small, difficult to go with a party bigger than 4 but we pulled a chair up to the table for our 5th member.

“LOVE the service, food is standard diner food, but good!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Loved that they deliver 24 hours, the staff is great--friendly and personable.

Food is standard diner food, home made and tasty, and coffee flows all night.

“Small town dinner charm...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Small Cafe with a small town charm in Downtown Philadelphia...Good variety in the menu, awesome flavors,big portions, especially the milkshakes ( huge)... and the waiters always smiling and paying attention, despite being very busy (almost running in this crowded place)..On the downside, sometimes you get to feel the guy by your side texting over your eggs but I knew before hand that the place was tiny so that didn't was a dissapointment...Definitely coming back

“Great Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Grew up with traditional diners and this place does not disappoint. It's "cash only" policy is great, and of course bottomless coffee!
