We really enjoyed our meal and the experience. Some of us ordered breakfast, some lunch - it was great to be able to order either at any time of day. Our waitress was super friendly, and our coffee cups were never empty.

Great place within walking distance of my work. I've never had to wait very long for my food and the food is always great. The servers and host/hostess are always friendly.

Outstanding meals range from burgers to sandwiches to omelets and pancakes. The food is consistently excellent. Prices are very fair and moderate. service is excellent, cleanliness is excellent, and the atmosphere is very nice. There can be long lines sometimes, but that is because so many people love this place.

The week day specials are amazing and low cost. Don't skip the breakfast potatoes... the best I've ever had! Have had lunch there too and enjoyed the tuna salad. Service us quick and food really good. CASH ONLY.

Bill had Western omelette n I had strawberry waffle. Both were very good. And they came fast. Easy to find and very busy. But after our order was placed it was only a matter of 10 minutes before we were eating
