My husband, kids and I enjoyed our lunch at the White Rose. Three of us has breakfast for lunch and my daughter had the toasted ravioli. The breakfasts were very tasty. The biscuits and gravy were large portions and very good. The ravioli was fine- nothing outstanding. The waitress was very friendly and we would stop again.

This is a classic dinner and piece of union history, breakfast and the staff were fantasric. The only thing is the smoking in the building, being from Florida we were used to cigarette smoke with breakfast. But everything else was wonderful!

Amazing breakfast! Small diner in the heart of Union, worth the wait if there is one. Service is fast!

Food is very good. This is NOT a "greasy spoon" diner. Classic diner fare, great Wall hangings (and a full old style telephone booth!). Waitress was friendly and didn't have to wait long. NOTE they only have pink sugar substitute so bring your own yellow or blue packets. Otherwise, a great start to our day on the road. Two thumbs... More

The food is what you would expect from a greasy spoon diner..one big drawback is they still allow smoking on the half nearest to door and as you enter and exit you get a nice dose of second hand smoke and if you have to use the restroom you need a gas mask to go thru the smoking section.

Was really awful, they allow smoking still, the waitress used profanity talking with another table within earshot of my 6 year old... not so much. Food was so so at best, my burger was burnt. Won't be back, disappointed as this is my home town!

The White Rose has excellent breakfast and a wonderful friendly staff. The food is always well prepared and ready quickly. They keep your coffee cup full. The prices are very reasonable. It is home cooking like you dream about. It is one of those kind of places that you hear about by word of mouth where people have been going... More

Good, home cooking in family friendly atmosphere. My teenagers and I ate here for breakfast. Everything was very good and fresh. Only drawback is that smoking is still allowed in restaurants in this town.
