This is the original, old-school style breakfast restaurant (now in their 20th year). Small and cozy, with a bar featuring old timers, where everyone knows everyone. Decent food and great prices. And real butter.

Went for Sunday brunch while travelling through Binghamton. It was an excellent find. The eggs, pancakes, hash, bacon and potatoes were excellent. The portions were huge, and the prices were unbelievably reasonable.

This was an okay place. We made the mistake of going on Sunday, when they close early and you can only order off the breakfast menu. My son disliked the oniony tasting home fries. I ordered a broccoli omelet underdone. Meaning the eggs, but the broccoli was underdone instead. Decent coffee. They were busy and the server did not bring... More

Very busy on our Sunday morning visit. Although we found a table right away it wasn't cleared of the previous diners' plates for about 10 minutes, nor were we greeted by a waitress during that time. When our waitress did come to the table she was very attentive and our food came out quickly. Food was plentiful and tasty. The... More

This is a small diner with typical diner aspects. The portions are large so I ordered a breakfast sandwich both mornings. Each time I specifically said NO home fries which cost $2 more. Both days the meal came with them and we were charged extra. That up-pricing is not nice. The owners were on sight. My husband didn't want to... More

I have been here several times because it is so cheap. Average breakfast and lunch items. Great for a hangover and the portions are large. You are not going to be introduced to fine cuisine here, but that is not the point. Go if you are on a budget a day want some egg - based breakfast. Bring cash no... More

Whether you live in the area or are visiting, this place is a gem. This is a classic diner but the food is delicious, there is great service, and very reasonable prices. It is family owned and operated. Chris and Nikki will look after you as if you were a guest in their home.

Expect a wait as this place is small and has limited seating.Once seated the staff is great. Order comes out fast and right. The blueberry pancakes are huge and the omelettes are huge. Great value They only take cash

Every time i visit Binghamton, I go here for breakfast. I absolutely adore this place. Food is good, service is great and you know it must be good if the locales frequent it!! Shirley our waitress was affable. friendly and professional. I heartily recommend this diner.If you are looking for upscale dining DON'T go here. Food is unpretentious just great!!
