Kind of a simple and homey place with good homemade food, friendly staff. There is nothing fancy, just basic food. Good value for the money.

Had lunch with a friend today there - great food and service - we stayed late at lunch no push to get us out after they were ready to close. Our waitress, who was having a birthday, was great at the upsell and we ordered way too much, but enjoyed it all - great place to go in Cayuga County!!!

Mom is in the kitchen cooking breakfast all day. For lunch and dinner Be Happy has all the diner menu stuff you could want, and it's all good. The daughters are in the dining room and although the service isn't professional it's attentive, friendly and very caring. They even invited us to their Christmas party where they choose a local...

We stayed in nearby Aurora and stopped at this local diner. We were pleasantly surprised. The breakfast was very good. The waitstaff very friendly and family owned. Really good prices and very ample portions.

We took a Motorcycle Day trip from Toronto down to the finger lakes region and stumbled upon this place as we were passing through Union Springs. The people who run the place are amazing, and prepared us an excellent meal. The owner went above and beyond and prepared everything from scratch. Excellent food, priced fair, and amazing service and hospitality.... More
