We were looking for breakfast in the area and so happy we got to experience this diner. Food was amazing and the service was fast and friendly. We knew we were at the right place when we saw how crowded it was with locals.

If you love the true diner experience, this is for you! Fabulous menu with lots of old fashioned favorites and lots of new! This is a busy place with fast service. They have gluten-free pancakes, johnny cakes, and ploys, a French Acadian buckwheat pancake that you can normally only find in Northern Maine. This is obviously a popular place with... More

We read excellent reviews of this diner, but drove right past it. A very tiny restaurant in a busy area. Very glad we found parking, because this diner is not to be missed! Excellent service, good prices, and terrific quality of food. You must try the sweet potato pancakes!

A 50s-era diner car with fans, stainless steel, free coffee and soda refills, copious portions, burgers, reubens, egg preparations of every description, pancakes, busy yet warm waitresses who call you "hon." What's not to love? I'm not from MA but it warmed my Jersey soul.

Sunday evening after a long day touring with 3 kids we stumbled onto this diner which is 5 minutes away from our lodgings. All 3 picky kids found something they liked and we 4 adults were also very pleased. The ownet was presiding over the efficient friendly service and gladly told me the history of this 71 year old icon.... More

This place has turned into a place with long lines, barely average food, and over the top prices. Long gone are the days where a diner was a cheap place to catch a quick bite. Parking is on the street if you are lucky enough to find a spot. And seeing the kitchen through the windows from the gas station... More

Have a hangover and need a huge breakfast? Boom! This is your spot! Meal with the family or casual get together? Any meal any time, you can find a reason to go. Best breakfast hash I have ever had!

What a breaky. Relaxed and satisfying. Even healthy if you want. I prefer the three eggs and sausages. Thank you

Came solo because of a pancake craving and I had read some Google reviews saying their pancakes are amazing. I figured I would give them a try. Sat at the bar and my waitress was pretty blunt, no smile and I felt rushed by her. Service was pretty efficient and I got my pancakes within 10 min of ordered. Pancakes... More

Mt family and I eat here on a regular basis and we really enjoy the atmosphere and food especially. They serve breakfast all day. Pancakes, French toast, omlets......They also have healthy alternatives to traditional pancakes. Lunch and dinner menu's have a lot of options. Great food!
