Hood breakfast and lunch. Chicken salad was great. Fruit and cheese stuffed crepes were out of this world. Sweet but delicious. Plate had 3 but I was full on 1.5.

Had a business breakfast here and is definitely the best diner in this stretch. Our server was attentive and our food came quick. We were there during a weekday, and it was not very crowed. The pancakes were excellent, and the coffer was very good. Will frequent this place more.

Had the grilled ham and cheese and a turkey rueben. Both sanwiches were great. Got a 10% discount showing my LaQuinta room keycard.

This diner was right next to our hotel, so we thought we'd give it a try. I ordered classic eggs benedict and my husband had the ribeye steak. Both were terrible, The English muffin was too hard to cut with a steak knife, the sauce was a lump of deep yellow, and the eggs were hard. The ribeye was 1/2... More
