This place was suggested by our hotel for breakfast, and it was a wonderful! We ate outside "socially distant" from other diners. Most wonderful breakfast and fun wait staff, also impressed the owner actually visited each table and helped with tables!

Great diner atmosphere, friendly staff. Get the Cinnamon roll (or 2 but they are big). We all ate something different and we were all satisfied from the breakfast sandwiches, to the waffles, eggs benedict. Large mouth watering menu to choose from so plan ahead. Go...for breakfast and you will not need to eat lunchMore

A wonderful experience for the entire family. The staff was welcoming and friendly. The food was well made and delicious. Our family has a variety of diets ranging from gluten free, keto, and typical, and everyone easily found an item to eat. I recommend this...to anyone visiting Pittsburgh. Huge omelets, flavor filled banana pancakes and the biggest waffles; so much to enjoy!More

Wow! Our first visit and loved it! We had hot turkey sandwich, hot ham sandwich AND CRAB ASPARGUS OMELETS! Holy smokes! The hollandaise sauce TOOK IT OVER THE EDGE! Perfection. Love the social distancing mini dining rooms. Great service 😊

Alittle off the beaten path but worth it. Line was short for a Sunday first come first served. Plenty of outdoor seating. Friendly staff kept the coffee coming! Corned beef hash and eggs was great, healthy portions. Omelets very good as well. Definitely better than...Pamela's which we had been to several times. Definitely go back.More

A favorite breakfast spot for my family! Thankful they offer takeout but prior to covid we loved eating at the diner since the staff is awesome and sometimes we even got to catch up with Kelly! By far our favorite menu items are .. All...of the Benedict’s, pumpkin pancakes, Belgium waffle, homefries are a must and Turkey pot pie.. huge portions definitely don’t leave you hungry!More

I recommend that restaurant. Good food for reasonable price and very good location. The servers were fast. So you don’t need to wait long time. Been there in September 2020. I like it.

Went here because it was on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. Average burger joint. Food was good, nothing that stood out from other places. Would probably go there again if I was hungry for a good burger

Stopped in last Friday mid afternoon. Had the worst meal we have ever had here. I had the special - crab and asparagus omelet. It was awful - tasted fishy, no seasoning, no cheese. Both of our toast was cold. His over easy eggs were...cooked hard. We got an order of beignets. They were the size of a quarter and tasted like biscuits from a tube. The waitress was just putting in her time. She never checked to see how our food was or if we needed drink refills except for once yelling from the service area across the restaurant if we were ok. I wasnt about to tell back on everything that was wrong. Like to support local businesses, but wish I had gone up the road to IHOP. Will not be going back to spend $36 for slop.More
