This is one of my favorites places to have brunch! I love the variety of eggs benedict that they offer, my favorite is the one with avocado and tomatoes. The expresso coffee is great, but if you don't like cinnamon make sure you clarify this...More

Our favorite breakfast spot on the Mainline. My favorite is their mountainous Pepper & Egg Sandwich. Their fresh baked pastries and awesome chicken salad wrap is among our many favorites here.

Good food at a high price. Stuffed french toast is awesome as most dishes are. Seating is not comfortable, tight space, and drafty if by a window. We go there when we want something different because they do have a nice twist on things

This place is not really a "diner" but it does have good unique food. Great sandwiches, good hearty chili, and killer French toast. Highly recommend sitting front at the counter or window. The rest of the seating is uncomfortably close and noisy !

Large servings but excellent food. I had banana pancakes with walnuts, which were great and my husband had sweet potato French toast which was delicious too!

People were telling us we just had to experience this place because it was the best diner in the area. Either their idea of what a diner is supposed to be is different than mine or Classic Diner is trying to revolutionize the term diner...More

We stopped here the morning after visiting Longwood Gardens Christmas extravaganza. Lots of positive reviews, and, justifiably so. Well kept place, but not exactly my idea of a diner. This borders on restaurant quality. Our breakfasts were nicely prepared and tasty. I have eaten at...More
