We have eaten here twice. Both times, because we were headed to the Oakland Airport and decided to stop here for breakfast. They serve a solid American style breakfast. Everything was cooked perfectly. Last time it was freezing in there. I mentioned it to our server, but nothing changed.

Reminded me of an old time diner. Warm, friendly atmosphere. All the staff were awesome. FOOD WAS GREAT. Had the liver and onions. Liver was tender. Mashed potatoes were delicious. If you want a homey, restaurant with great food this is the place for you
