“It's alright. Not outstanding, but alright”
Reviewed January 21, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant caters to the hungover. Loaded with grease and meat, their food instantly makes you feel better out of the sheer weight of it. I generally have a skillet, and it's pretty tasty. The downside is that it sits in your stomach like lead shot. That would be the greasiness I was talking about. Be sure to bring tums as this food will give you bad heartburn. There is always a line on the weekends, which gives the place a somewhat rushed feel. Also the door, oftentimes propped open by people in line, washes the entire restaurant in freezing cold winter air. The prices are reasonable and the serving size is large. It was something along the lines of 8$ for my skillet (basically hash browns and meat cooked in a ramekin and covered with egg). Quick thing, this restaurants coffee is terrible. Like "ew, why did I put this in my mouth" terrible. If you're hungover or just really hungry I would recommend it, but there are other places you could go if you wanted breakfast.

“old iconic local haunt.”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

change of ownership cleaned the place up aesthetically. Food "diner good" and reasonable.. Same stuff for 40+ years. Campus favourite.

“Small but excellent food”
Reviewed April 15, 2012

This may be a small place but this place is great, great food good service at a very fair price. Comfortable atmosphere friendly staff , but if you're looking for fancy and high prices look elsewhere.

“tasteless food, poor service”
Reviewed February 22, 2012

I had the pancakes - just three giant pancakes and nothing else on the plate.
Syrup on table - the high fructose kind. Too expensive.
Worse of all was the service - the lady/owner is of Eastern European origin (maybe it's this, or just being the typical unfriendly Londoner - this is what happens to a town with almost 0 diversity in its population)
She was just fast with everything, too fast in fact, took away my plate without asking me.
And gave me 10 1cents in change, when clearly she had a 10cent piece - I could see it.
Well, maybe she wanted to make sure I don't go back there to maintain the homogeneity of her client base.
