Visited mid week for late brunch. Open 25 hours. Classic American dinner. Opening in 1976 and I don’t think has changed that much. Food was good I had vegetarian eggs Benedict. With tomato and avocado. Delicious and quite reasonable. Back for more when passing

I have been coming here as a child with my family. They have awesome dessert. My favorite diner was and is the open turkey sandwich. Breakfast is good like most diners. But this one cooks the hash and homefries perfect!
