This is a great place to go when trying to satisfy multiple diets. Vegan and gluten-free items are available. My partner had the meatloaf and loved it. I had the vegan french toast, which was great, but next time I'd ask them to go light on the vanilla "cream" because it was very sweet.

My husband and I have eaten here a few times and always enjoyed the food as well as the very varied menu. Late this afternoon we stopped for an early diner and what struck us was the much smaller menu selection. When we placed our orders we were asked if we wanted to "upgrade" by adding soup or salad to... More

We got hungry and needed a break on the way to NYC, and the friendly tripadvisor app led us to this place, just of the highway, Frankly, I would have been satisfied with much less, yet wad very happy to discover this lovely place, which had everything we hoped for and provided us with a much needed rest. Large, clean,... More

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
