Very very disappointing. Worst breakfast the three of us have ever had. Broken hollandaise sauce completely drowning the food. extremely lazy cook on everything. Friendly service though.

This place is great! The breakfast is delicious however it is very expensive. The service is good- we go here quite often and the same girls always serve us. Definitely worth going here to check out the fun diner atmosphere

The food was fairly good, the service was so-so, had to ask for a refill of coffee. The prices were too high here. $30 for an omelette, two soups and two coffees seems like a lot for lunch. Will think twice before returning.
