I have been coming here since the 80's and I love this place and the people. Nothing fancy, just great food and service.

Ok, not kidding, the best breakfast ever. Nothing fancy but everything you want. Fried potatoes that you'll dream about, fresh baked muffins (some with cream cheese filling-ask), many different kinds of pancakes-all great, three egg omelettes that you'll never finish but you'll want to, and everything else your breakfast brain can crave. There's almost always a wait, but it's totally... More

My fellow classmates and I were staying in Xenia, Ohio for our graduation from seminary. We decided to venture out of the city of Xenia for a different breakfast experience. The hotel only had continental breakfast. One of our group did a google search and found the Golden Nugget. Wow! This was a fantastic choice! The food was absolutely delicious.... More

One of my favorite brunch restaurants in college. The pancakes are so good, as is everything on the menu. Also, you stand in line to be seated which is because you always know how much longer it will be.

I visited on Friday the 13th of May at around 9am. This was my first time visiting based on other reviews and recommendations from other TripAdvisor members. The parking is plenty. I was seated almost immediately. The menu offers a wide variety of breakfast items. The waitress was friendly, helped me make my order and kept my coffee cup full... More

Stop in for a quick breakfast before leaving the area. It was delicious, our server was friendly, and the food came out quickly. Will definitely visit again.
