I visited the diner 3 times during my stay. A family member took me to this restaurant. The diner is small--about 5 booths that would seat 4 at each and counter seating sat about 10. The service was excellent. Every server was friendly. The food was good home cooking. The diner is open for breakfast and lunch only. Get there... More

This is a very old fashioned looking diner, on the corner. From what we were told it has diff name now and the new owners took over that day in early june. They were young and ambitious. Husband was cook and wife waiting tables, cashing peeps out, etc. The entire staff friendly and efficient. It has a long counter and... More

Nope. Not even for breakfast. Fine enough for locals that live within a few blocks looking for eggs or a sandwich. But burgers at Wendy's are better. Not worth the time beyond eggs and toast. I live one block away and won't likely ever be back. Go to the Mexican store/restaurant across the street!!!!

you will not get fancy food here but good food and lots to eat. Burgers are great, as well as their pancakes. They have specials every day so give it a try.

Great place for cheap and good food. It's a medium size place which makes for great service. A cool take on breakfast classics. Look into the daily specials, you might miss out on a one time tasty meal. Booths are great for 4. Plenty of seating at the counter. They accept bookings for parties. Family owned and they hosted both... More

After a long road trip and the bad taste of fast food left in our mouths we wanted something different, found this gem online. OH yes, it is worth the drive into town off freeway and we will be back down to eat there again! The corn beef hash WAS amazing, and the pancake divine and the sweet potato fries... More

This is a hidden gem we would have driven by had we not asked my nail tech for restaurant recommendations. It's an adorable old fashioned diner with four booths and bar seating. Very simple menu but what we had was very tasty. The owner was waiting on customers and very friendly. Wait time is usual for home cooked food, I... More

The diner is cute - small and clean. A compact menu (one page, front and back), with some basic solid options for breakfast and lunch, and reasonably priced. Our server was friendly, but rushed since they were the only one covering house. (Assuming it was the owner.) The biggest drawback was the wait time. Three people in our party, it... More

We went here because I read good reviews online. It is a little place that's only open until 2:00. My husband got sweet potato pancakes, which he said were very good. He also got sausage patties, which appeared to be hand pressed. I got a BLT and it was good. I also got cole slaw, which appeared to be store... More
