A traditional diner in the best ways possible. If you like omelots, you must try the "garbage omelot" They are very flexible in swapping one thing for another and our entire order was correct when it came out. Service was excellent and they provide extra parking behind the diner. Would love to go back sometime and try lunch.

If you like an old diner atmosphere and so so diner food, then this is the place for you. Nothing is really bad but nothing is really great either. Great late night spot for sitting, chatting, drinking coffee and grabbing a quick bite.

This is a great Diner lots of fun to visit good food, not too expensive. The staff is attentive. Is the old rail car type Diner with single and family seating. The wraps are delicious! They don't take cards, there is an ATM in the back. It is convenient to the Vestal Parkway and has good parking available.

Went to breakfast with my family. Very old school you can sit up to the counter. Take a booth or at a table. We had pancakes eggs and a waffle. All very good. Would come back again.

The menu is limited, and they only accept cash. That being said, the food is excellent. The breakfast and burgers are my personal favorites. The staff are also quick and friendly.

We didn't want to eat breakfast in a chain restaurant so my son who was graduating from Binghamton University last weekend said this seem popular. Well it was worth traveling because the food was good and the people nice. That day the special was banana bread french toast which my son had. We all had some and it was wonderful.... More

Food was good other than my steak was all grizzle. As for my eggs and potato cakes, they were good. Good service and prices. Nothing surprising, but not bad...well other than that "steak."
