Nice neighborhood diner that we have never had a bad experience at. Lots of regulars but guests are not made to feel out of place. Simple, homestyle food at great prices.

Three of us had breakfast for lunch which was delivered together but without the extra milk and coffee not ordered initially. Food is cooked to order and was competently executed and priced moderately. Our server was not someone I recognized from previous visits.
