This is a well located restaurant, great breakfast and typical meat-and-three plates plus sandwiches. We enjoyed our meal very much after an early morning appointment at UVA hospital and were on our way out of town. The service was good, too!

So glad we stopped! The place has a diner feel even though it doesn't look that way from outside. French toast was so good. Service was super fast. Will definitely be back next time we are in Charlottesville!
