I love a good diner and all day breakfast. This is obviously a neighborhood favorite. Simple, decent food, good service with a smile. Enjoy!

I went here on Saturday for breakfast and the woman who served me was very rude and intimidating. She was impatient while I ordered and passed snide comments to me throughout my visit. I would not visit again based on my experience.

This is a very small, but well-run and reasonably priced restaurant. Considering the lack of breakfast options in the area, this area is likely one of the best choices that can be found. They have solid pancakes, and scrambled eggs are good, not fake tasting....More

Great simple breakfast.... good prices and service. The early bird special was more than enough to eat so we shared a bit and it turned out to be the perfect amount of food for both of us.

Found this place. It is a good no frills breakfast joint. It isn't expensive, but will fill you up. Service was efficient. Quick turnover. Specialize in gooey pancake varieties.

I had a good breakfast there today, that I waited for 45 mins. While waiting they served gallons of coffee which was not bad. However beware if you are in a hurry, the service is really slow for a small place like this.

Can't miss - the staff is not customer service fake, so don't go in expecting to have your entitled butt kissed. The food....worth every wait, every bit of snark...I won't go anywhere else. Super cheap, quick, and delicious. Excellent for a Saturday breakfast or weekday...More

If I remember correctly, they do serve it all day but they close late in the afternoon.
