I like me some hash-n-eggs, and this diner delivers. Excellent breakfast. Friendly service. Typical diner menu. People seemed satisfied and happy. No complaints we could see or hear. Wife said the pancakes were delicious too.

CJ D, thanks for the review! Glad to hear that you enjoyed the Tomayto Tomahto Burger! Try out the Brussels Sprouts & Lentils - also a great vegan dish. We hope to see you back again soon, Emily More

I love SD and never had a bad experience until 3-weeks ago. The hostess told us to close the door in a very rude manner. When I pointed out that we were customers and had a bad attitude, she never apologized. I went to the manager and he tried to make it okay. I may or may not return.

My visit here is always excellent. The food and the service is fantastic. I've tried other establishments and this is by far the best! Their food is fresh and their service is top quality. I highly recommend you try this restaurant if you are in the area.

Average meal, nothing to write home about. Probably would try somewhere else to eat if we visited here again

Loved this place! Felt like an authentic 1950s Diner. Great and friendly service. Amazing food with many vegan choices. I didn't have salad for once! Try them, you'll be glad you did!

Great breakfasts especially for GF family. Love the huevos rancheros and my kids really like the GF pancakes and french toast. Good coffee. Always good service. A little pricy otherwise a 5.

Great updated take on class is diner. Very friendly and helpful staff. Expansive menu full of fresh and locally sourced foods and traditional dishes with a modern twist. So glad we used TripAdvisor to find this while driving down 95. Bison Huevos Rancheros are fantastic.

Had dinner here after church tonight. Food was tasty and fresh and the service was great. I had the salmon and my wife had the chicken picatta. Both dishes were very tasty.
