Food is very good and big portions. Staff is friendly and good service. Fair prices and the best thing I noticed was how clean it was,... More

Wow this place was amazing. The atmosphere was really friendly and plenty if room to sit. The food is huge portions I'm a big boy and I could only eat half my buiscuits and gravy and it was delicious. Prices are good as well.

The ambience is super and makes you feel like you are back in the fifties at the airport - a much simpler time for sure. The eggs were cooked as ordered and the bacon was perfect. A substantial side of hash browns cooked extra crispy as ordered. Service was fast, friendly and attentive. Fair prices.

The food is great, The service is fantastic, and you can watch airplanes take off and land. The chicken fried steak is so tender good. Great home made pies and deserts. They also have great aviation history to check out. A few times each year they bring in old vintage aircraft that you can check out, or for a price... More

This is a fun place! I had french toast, egg, bacon breakfast and it hit the spot. Other reviews have mentioned the bacon and if you prefer your bacon well done, you will love it here. It is thick and crispy brown and perfect. Our service was classic old school diner, friendly and efficient with our waitress calling us 'hon'... More

Great place with Aviation history. Food is fantastic and the price is right. The eggs Benedict was one of the best I have ever eaten. My husband loved his vegetarian omelet .. Can't wait to go back.

I literally live just round the corner from Felts Field and the splendid Skyway Cafe. But that's not the reason I frequent this unique restaurant. I would travel across state lines to dine on their delicious home cooked breakfasts & lunches. The menu is extensive, and although all the food is very 'American' it's all prepared as perfectly as if... More

We stopped by this adorable cafe for Sunday breakfast and had a great meal. The food was classic breakfast - all cooked to perfection. Our meal was so inexpensive, I almost felt guilty! The service was fast and friendly, but the best thing was the colorful decor - you feel like you've stepped back in time! Definitely worth the short... More
