Came here to eat breakfast and kill time as my car was getting serviced down the block (6 hours later wait time) and I’m from Syracuse so I had to find a place to chill. Ordered the Cortland omelette. It was delicious. Two waitresses working...the floor and they both were genuinely friendly. There are about a dozen Booths and around 5 tables. I’ll be back again in the future.More

My wife & I stopped in for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. The restaurant was about half full, but there were people lined up behind us waiting for a table. Our waitress was very friendly, sat us in a booth, just a great start to...a real nice lunch. Best of all, the restaurant seemed spotless & the atmosphere was very relaxing. We really enjoyed our dining experience. We will return in the future.More

Two walking circuts around downtown Cortland NY and we'd determined where the locals dine by car volulme and filled tables. The locals definitely have great tast. Food: Crisp sweet potato fires, without salt are worth the trip to Cortland alone. We added a creamy cheese...topped lasagna and a generous Cobb salad, both nicely served. Venue: We loved being surrounded by the local families, groups of ladies and diers of all ages. Staff: Friendly? Heck yes! We felt as if we were dining in the heart of America. But travelers beware: you could gain weight just listening to all the fresh baked pie flavors they offer. All stars and thumbs up to this iconic diner-a definitely contender for the notorious Jersey competition. If you're passing through Cortland from out of the US, you'll feel as though you've seen a slice of America. Silver Sage Magazine @silversagemagMore

Good Menu and Food. This is definitely a place where all the hung over college students go after a strong night of partying.

Being that is is a “diner” in my hometown, I figured they had great breakfasts. Well their dinners are just as good, if not better! I was very happy with my meal. Highly recommend for breakfast and dinner!!

The place was packed which is a good sign. The server we had was friendly but not too attentive. Took a long time to get our food, probably because of how busy they were. The food is basic diner food, nothing mind blowing. I did...think the prices were fairly high for what you got. There are better places for less in Cortland so we probably won't be back.More

We ordered take out, but decided to eat in. Food was ok, but not great. The salad with chicken had good greens, but the chicken tasted old and it was hard. Not good. The other two sandwiches were just ok. The restaurant was clean. It...was just ok.More
