We like to eat different places when we travel and always want to give the local places a try. I was excited based on the reviews and like old fashioned diners. This was ok, have had much better. Staff was nice, resturant was clean, prices were a little steep, food was nothing special. I didn't eat my sausage as I... More

This is the best breakfast in town! My husband and I eat here on a regular basis and have never had a bad meal. My favorite breakfast is Adams Special. Also if you are around for lunch try the Sole.

Basic food, prepared well. Fresh squeezed OJ. MIss the great pies they used to have, they were out of this world. Has been around a long time.

Our breakfast was fantastic. We had the fresh squeezed OJ, a must have, the spinach, bacon, tomato omelet and the steak breakfast. The omelet had the perfect balance of ingredients. The potatoes were cooked perfectly. Service was excellent!

A true locals favorite conveniently located right on HWY 50 (E. Williams St. in Carson City) near its intersection with old HWY 395. Breakfast's are best with their special potatoes (no hash browns).

A great place for breakfast especially the Omelette with Linguica sausage. This garlicky Portuguese sausage has a unique flavour that really compliments the eggs and veggies in this dish. The staff are really helpful and friendly and the decor is so genuine 50's diner that you think you're back in Milwaukee.

We are from Colorado, but for the last year and a half I have been working on a project in Knoxville, TN. The food in Tenn is so horrible, that we don't eat out anymore. I have met many out of state people who agree with me on that. When you go on vacation, most hotels have their standard mediocre... More

Breakfast is good. My bacon was over cooked almost to burnt. Eggs were made correctly. House potatoes are different with green onions and tomatoes.

The only place I eat breakfast in town. They do not accept credit cards, so bring your cash. There is an ATM near by and a bank across the street. Do NOT let that stop you from eating here. Original owner has been running the place for over 30 years now. Very well know and visited by locals.

Thank retalbert
