The parking lot was packed and we thought it would be a long wait at 10am. Nope! Got right in and we're seated at a comfy booth. Service was great. Food was fresh, hot and all made from scratch - corned beef, the English muffins, the bread. Coffee was HOT but good, not the typical diner coffee flavored water. Excellent... More

This diner offers the normal "greasy spoon" diner options, along with an incredible vegetarian/vegan/gluten free menu. They offer organic meats, and have incredible espresso. We enjoy eating here and it is always a treat as the menu is quite a bit pricier than a traditional diner, however the food is very quality. The only item Ive even been unpleased with... More

Lots of options for every diet - including vegan and gluten free when such choices aren't always abundantly available. My husband had gluten free pasta and I indulged in the vegan French toast (which was a little too sweet as mentioned by another reviewer.) We also enjoyed vegan and gluten free cake for desert. This is the sister restaurant to... More

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.

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.
