Nice little place with cool Betty Boop memorabilia all over with other 60'S stuff. Looks like the owner is the employee. Server was nice but busy. Had a typical breakfast with a little more then usual portion size. Prices were within reason. Cooked proper and tasted good.

Four of us happened in here for breakfast last Sunday morning. The place is cute . . .fifties diner sort of a place, with old movie posters and Bette Boop dolls on the walls. The menu was reminiscence of the fifties too: biscuits and gravy, omelets, blueberry pancakes - lots of great choices. We were the only people in the... More

The food was good and the prices fair. The service was very good. I had coffee with lunch and the cup didn't go empty. The waitress was very pleasant.

Had to leave without being served. Restaurant was almost empty, but still waited over 45 minutes for breakfast. It seemed the cook prepared one dish at a time. We had allowed an hour and half for breakfast before our Pendleton Underground Tour. Obviously not enough time for this very small diner! Meals were coming out about every 30 minutes or... More

Had breakfast at Main Street Diner...it was Delicious! It is a small diner decorated in 50's style. And the food is delicious! I had the Pancake combo...two cakes, two eggs and bacon. I splurged and went for the blueberry pancakes...the pancakes are huge and awesome...the combo was only $10. No I'm not lying...$10!! And you will not leave hungry. The... More

After a bad dinner experience it was great to have a really great family meal!!! Breakfast here was the best!!! Service was superb, and the atmosphere was funny and inviting. Each of our meals were served hot, fast and full of flavor. We were able to walk here from our hotel and the walk back was full of great family... More

Only open for breakfast/lunch and it's a great little place to grab some good food. Would recommend going during the week when business is a little slower, as the service is a little understaffed/slow. But the food definitely makes up for it!

If you don't mind slow service, lack of attention to detail, servers that wear open toe shoes and incredibly inefficient coffee refills, this is your place! Oh, haven't even eaten yet. Really doesn't matter at this point.

We've eaten here twice. Once for breakfast, which was average. Second time for lunch, which was tasty but service was very slow.

Thank Tarol
