Deeee-licious. I would have given them 5 stars, but the seating was uncomfortable and it was very crowded (go on an off-time if you can). Also - our server knew this was our first time and we ordered a salad to split - not realizing both of our meals came with a side salad. (The salad we ordered with pears,... More

I have been eating here for years since I was introduced to it by a colleague. The food is good and the portions are large. Often times we will order a couple of entrees and share. A personal favorite is the Reuben sandwich, with the burgers a close second. Our daughter loves the quesadilla. Don’t forget to get the home... More

I'm not sure I agree with the high ratings for this diner out here on TripAdvisor. I mean, it is perfectly adequate and the food is tasty (if slightly over-salted) but this brunch time, the day before Mother's Day, the place was loud...especially because so many tables are crammed into such a small place. Considering that the aggregate ratings have... More

The name says it all a slice of Americana. Great light filled diner. All dishes fresh with nice presentation. Super friendly staff. Good for business breakfasts.

Not a really large place and it is well known so expect to wait if you want a table. There were stools available at the counter when we got there but were soon taken. Some interesting dishes and quantity is plenty. Will go back when in the area.

A bit cramped and the back room was WAY hot when we first sat down for breakfast. Surprisingly, they were out of Nutella (how is this possible on a weekend when you KNOW you will probably need plenty!). Once the food came, though, we were more than happy - great pancakes and outstanding grilled potatoes. The food makes this place... More

The food saves this place from the atmosphere and lack of room. Odd dining areas and tight squeezes to get to your table. We were seated in the back corner. The waitress was ok, never checked after we had our food if everything was ok Had to flag her down to get a box and check, never was offered more... More

I think the place is best know for breakfast and brunch, but I thought it was even better for lunch. Although the menu and prices are that of a high-end diner, the food is executed at a fine-dining level. Not only is the quality high, but the quantity is generous. The atmosphere and service are very good. They do cram... More

Great place to meet friends for breakfast on a weekday. The spinach omelette I ordered was fantastic and my friends all enjoyed their meal as well. Place was busy, but the tables turn over quickly, so we did not wait. Service was good and the was food good, but the parking gets dicey when they are busy.
