This has always been our "go to" place for breakfast when we visit Kernville. The only drawback is that it's quite small and usually requires a wait unless it's warm enough to eat at the outside tables. Despite always being rushed, the staff are quick, efficient and friendly. They serve large portions of the usual breakfast fare, hot and tasty.... More

Understand this is an 8 table very simple diner. But the diner food is varied and has some home made feel. I had a bean, ham and bacon soup obviously made from scratch.

This place makes you feel like you belong. Although it is small, the staff was kind and helpful. Food was outrageously delicious.

My parents owned a diner for over 30 years and finding a good one can be tough! This place is small quaint and has giant portions of diner classics. I had a French dip. The au jus was amazing! Family all got breakfast. The corned beef hash was great too. Definitely worth a visit.

Had many meals there. Just plain good. Breakfast the chili verde skillet with a biscuit and gravy will fill you up and it is tasty. Friday nights the fish and shrimp are some of the best in the KRV. Saturday they have some real tasty prime rib with all the fixings. A little something for everyone.
