Well my husband and I have eaten here before and really have enjoyed it, however, lately they have been opening late and closing early. Sadly, due to these issues we won't be going back to give them another chance. If you are going between 7am...and 1pm you should be fine.More

Delicious breakfast!! Great service! Great prices! I ordered the big breakfast, which was recommended by the staff. This was the half order portion!! There is a sausage patty, hash browns, eggs, biscuit all covered in sausage gravy. Lots of food!!

Food took forever. There were on 9 people in the place. Food was just ok and definitely over priced. Counter still had coffee stains on it from the last customer. Very disappointing

Proper old school American Diner. Great food and service. The kind of place you feel comfortable in. No airs and graces, just good food.

Overview: Was in the River Market area visiting my daughter and wanted to try this place out as I had heard good things about their breakfast. Pros: Found a seat quickly even though they were really busy. We sat down and was greeted by a...friendly waitress who quickly brought us coffee and creamers. She promptly took our orders and was very knowledgeable and efficient. She kept our coffee cups full! Food was quick in arriving, and very good. Pancake was big, even though it was a "small" pancake. Cons: Coffee wasn't as hot as I like it, but I imagine that is just personal preference. Overview: A great breakfast at a fair price with good service!More

I was there at the order window at 2:10pm and someone in the background yelled shut it down. The lady at the window told me they are now closed I asked what time do you close and she said at 2:30pm. I looked at my...phone and it said 2:10 I told her it's not 2:30 it's only 2:10 she said I know we are still closed. They saw me in line as they helped the couple in front of me.More

This little greasy spoon is an excellent place to have breakfast. We had a Philly Steak Omlette and the Pork Chop breakfast. The only downside is the pork chops were very small, which made them dry. They did have awesome seasoning on them though. The...home fries are wonderful dipped in sausage gravy. Coffee tasted watered down. Aside from those two things, I would definitely recommend eating here.More

Nothing fancy here, just a great diner. Not much "healthy" on the menu, but everything was good. Good service too.

Looking for some breakfast food that leave you full for hours, this is the place to come. Sure you can order pancakes or French toast, but here you can also get eggs and sausage patties (or bacon or ham) on top of homemade biscuits and...hash browns and the covered with creamy sausage gravy. YUM! The location is quite popular and parking can be a hassle, but it is worth going to.More
