Been here a few times and always happy with the overall experience - very busy so it would pay to try and book on weekends. Reasonable prices and pretty good food!

Busy little restaurant. Popular with businessmen and builders. The food is good, served promptly. The coffee is good, served hot. Nothing flash - but better than your average eaterie

I always order the Salmon eggs benedict and a hash brown (not to be missed), along with bottomless coffee. It never fails to impress. The staff are kind and courteous, the food is mind blowing, and the 'diner' is always humming. A must visit breakfast delight.

Two thumbs up for this breakfast and lunch restaurant. My wife and I ordered eggs benedict and Drexel's special and guess what? It was just amazing, really delicious. The staffs did a great job, friendly and very attentive as well. The environment of this restaurant was nice and comfortable too. Hopefully I can return to this restaurant in the future... More
