Good home cooking from local owners. Long time favorite in the area. Place hasn't changed looks in a very long time.

We visited last week, and had a good time. The food is average for a diner, and the specials are tasty. The staff are jovial and make for a pleasant experience. Try it out, you will not leave hungry. Also,you NEED to check out the bathrooms. Not anything bad, just quirky. The bathroom is clean and functional, but interesting enough... More

A young man waited on us. He was funny and sweet. The young lady that was working at the same time as the young man was very nice as well.

OK lets be clear. You will get more than your monies worth here. I had a breakfast omolette that was huge and cheap. Great for the money. Just need to put up with the old building.

This place doesn't look like much from the outside - the inside either - but I go out of my way to eat here when I'm in the Dover area. Service is fast; food is good and basic, and the prices are reasonable. Best for breakfast and lunch. Clientele is very local; everyone knows your name-kind-of-place.

Everyone knows you can't beat the great breakfast you'll get here, so many specials to choose from. I suggest you go back for dinner, different specials every day including soup/sandwich/drink special. My favorite is the chicken w/ filling and some cucumber & onion salad. The price right and the atmosphere is very welcoming.
