We went past this little restaurant a dozen times before we decided to give it a try. Very unassuming from the outside but inside is cute and friendly and clean. Good for a yummy, filling breakfast. Good food, friendly service.

Service was good. Food was what you would expect, greasy diner food. Burger, chicken sandwich and burrito were all decent.
