Stopped in for a breakfast with a friend to chat a while. Service was very good and the waitress friendly. Breakfast was the basics but good and hot. It was empty when we arrived but got busy as we ate. I would certainly go again and the prices were fair.

Had and veggie omelet like my last visit and my friend bacon and eggs. She told me that recently everyone turned-over in both of Plymouth's two diners and she was hoping that the food was still as good here. It certainly was! The omelet was large and the portion of spuds equally as ample and both cooked to perfection. Other... More

Once our breakfast arrived, it was about what we expected for a small country diner. It was a busy Saturday morning and the one cook was handling lots of orders resulting in a long wait. The one surprise was the omelet…it was perfectly cooked. The portions were huge which might explain the popularity for this small restaurant. Would I return?... More
