This is fun place to meet some friends for breakfast or brunch when you feel like going back in time a little. This place definitely captures some of that old, greasy-spoon cafe feeling and has excellent breakfast fare. I brought my 74 year old father...More

This is a longtime local favorite - a staple for breakfast before work. Just good old fashioned diner food, nothing fancy. Large portions and the food came out faster than it took to place the order.
