I had breakfast, my husband had a club sandwich, neither was remarkable. The booth was really uncomfortable. Would not return or recommend.

Nice place to go for breakfast. Good old fashioned diner style food. Refreshing in this day of chain restaurants. Clean and great service.

I love the old fashion feel to this place, the excellent service and really nice people. Food has always been perfect and they come around back to your table more than once to check on you for anything else. (Great manners....). The walls are painted with history of the area and that really fun also. It does close at 3pm... More

We stopped for breakfast here while passing through Fortuna. The food was plentiful and delicious. Service prompt and friendly. We enjoyed it so much that we made a stop there on our way back too.

A good breakfast/lunch stop in downtown Fortuna. Good menu variety and most friendly staff. Small enough to order (and get) food cooked the way YOU like it. It is much like a locals hang out where you feel like one of them.

If on the 101 looking to stop for a bite, this is a must. Great friendly service with food to match. The prices are more than reasonable and its not that much of a detour. These serve breakfast from 7 and have a comprehensive menu. Look out for specials before ordering. Great value.

Good club sandwiches! I am very picky about iced tea. Their tea was very good! Service was friendly and prompt. Loved the painted murals on the walls and the resin covered inlays and old photos on the tabletops.

My favorite breakfast spot. Good old fashioned country cooking. Huge portions, small prices and fast, friendly service. I recommend it to anyone who asks me where they should eat for breakfast.
