We've been there twice. The first time I had chicken croquettes that were pretty cold in the middle and frankly weren't very good, with a huge mound of mashed potatoes with beans; the second time I had a really good tuna melt and fries. My partner had breakfast food both times. Overall, except for those croquettes the ingredients seem better... More

We had breakfast. Two eggs cooked right, hash browns rye toast all for less than $4.00! Service with a smile, and very quick. I will definitely visit again.

Having heard they are now offering a partial halal menu, we ventured over to check them out. Well from the salad bar to the entree, everything was fresh and delicious. I just hope they continue to increase their halal menu to include halal breakfast meat so we can be frequent flyers for breakfast too! Keep up the good work!

Friends invited us to dinner here. We noticed a couple Greek items on the menu and decided to try them. I had the Greek Village Platter (moussaka, pastichio & gyro meat) and my wife had the moussaka. Both were enjoyable. The salad bar had a nice variety of options. Service was friendly, prices decent, large servings and the restaurant was... More

I live just up the road, making this a great option. Typical kitchen diner record, Most of the food is good, not great. However, I will say I love their fluffy chocolate chip pancakes with some crispy scrapple and baked goods( go for the cinnamon twists) That being said, really did not appreciate the phone being passed off to three...

We had been here a few years ago and were unimpressed, but we gave it another try today and were nicely pleased. Salad ingredients (many, many of them) were fresh--and the soup/salad option can be added to a sandwich for but $3.95 or $4.95. There were two soup choices and the cream of spinach was especially good--as well as light.... More

Had dinner there last week and found the service to be quite friendly (for both the host & our server). The restaurant is clean and well lit and conveniently located along Rt. 3 in West Chester. The prices were decent and the food was very tasty. Will definitely go back again!

From the outside this looks like a cool diner but unfortunately the food, service and awful salad bar do not match the exterior. New to the state and West Chester area, we had heard great things about the diners in the area. Hope our next time we decide to stop in another diner, we have a better experience.

Typical diner atmosphere - nothing fancy, but a reasonably extensive menu, decent food, courteous service, and reasonable prices. Very clean and reminiscent of a late 50's diner. A nice salad bar included with many menu items, and makes a nice stand-alone lunch choice.
