We were looking for a place to have breakfast in the Old Town area and saw this spot. We were seated quickly and our drinks were delivered quick enough. Between the four of us we had the waffles, pancakes, biscuits and gravy, and an omelet....More

This is a small, crowded (expect a wait), diner with waitresses who have probably worked there for years. Nothing fancy here just the standard faire, biscuits & gravy, eggs, pancakes, hashbrowns and good coffee. Not a place to linger, just in and out. Service good...More
