Classic old style restaurant specializing in breakfast. Very reasonably priced and you can get your eggs steamed which not many places offer.

The moment you are welcomed in the door, you know this place is special. The flattop is where the magic happens and the coffee is always filled up. The breakfast club could be the best sandwich ever invented. Try it on multigrain with mayo.

This was recommended to us by some friends this morning, so we tried it out. Excellent service, the food came quickly, the price was good, and the food was excellent. Our friends told us that the home fries were really good, and they were right.
