Came here for lunch on a Sunday and the food was great. The portions were a good size and it wasn't too pricey. There was also good variety of food. The service was a little slow but still overall it was a good experience.

We discovered the diner a couple years ago. Will stop here before heading to the beach. Cute spot with the classic diner feel and look. Friendly staff and quick service. I love the vegan and vegetarian options. There is something on the menu for everyone. Would love to come back for lunch sometime.

We had a long wait for a burned cheeseburger. As soon as we noticed the burned meat under the cheese we noticed the servant W ho was willing to bring a new burger. But since we already waited rather long for our meal we decided not to have it.

This time we visited it seem like the menu has been updated and the four meals we had - two vegetarian, two meat - were all great! We had eaten here in the past and the meals were not as good. Maybe under new ownership? The great meals were: Brutus Burgers, Veggie Burger Meal, Spanakopita and greek salad. The sweet... More

I have been to this diner on and off for at least 8 years. The menu (and maybe the hands?) has changed quite a bit. It was very focused on vegetarian food and they still do offer some. The food has lost a lot of the diner quality finesse- if there is such a thing. Depending on who is in... More

Super cute and clean diner. The staff is extremely nice and the food was very proportionate. I did not however like the orange juice, had way too much pulp and $4.99 for orange juice? I got pancakes and bacon. The pancakes were really good! Would definitely return if I was from the area. My boyfriend got one of the daily... More

Out sight seeing seen sign on highway and thought I might get to see a shoreline. That was not the case but food was very good. Service was great and waitress very knowledgeable about menu. Was a little on the pricey side.

Big menu and friendly staff but seems like food quality and prep has slipped in the past year. Gluten free options are nice and breakfast is served all day which is aways nice.
