As the title says, it’s a super tiny (cozy) spot, but my sandwich’s were big of flavor! We got the brisket and The Orchard. I was surprised but how small they were, especially for $9 each. I wish they were bigger because they tasted so...More

Jack no longer there but the cafe goes on. New owners cleaned up the place a bit and friendly. Your average neighborhood go to breakfast and sandwiches. Glad it's there.

Seating for six, I’d guess, this is a tiny little place that serves a nice breakfast. It was just as humid inside as out, so we chose to eat on the patio. We both ordered a ham and cheese omelette and they were excellent. Fluffy...More

What a great little spot. Cheap as chips and a real local atmosphere. What I have always imagined an American diner to be like. Breakfast is your basic bacon, eggs, omelette etc.. Nothing flash but tasty.

Over the years, this "restaurant" -- a little hole in the wall has had several owners. It is very "greasy" and very well earns the name of a "greasy spoon." Good for breakfast. Lunch?? Not open for dinner.

We found this wonderful little place through Trip Advisor. This is a small breakfast/lunch place with a small counter, four inside tables and a few more outside. People have used the term "hole in the wall" but it is so much more than that! Breakfast...More
