Great value, great service and most importantly great food. Some might say it is a "greasy spoon", but it is a local landmark and great comfort breakfasts!

Would not recommend. Twice as expensive as Marija's down the street. I ordered side of ham and side of white toast. One skinny piece of ham which had an aftertaste like they sprayed something on the grill before cooking it. Left an aftertaste in my mouth for a few hours. And the prices are way too high. Also, always looking for waitstaff a few times a year which makes me think they are hard to work for. They are always sitting around the counter or at a table which I do not like to see either. Especially when its the cook sitting there. Do they wash their hands before they start cooking again after sitting and talking with their head in their hands? I would not recommend at all.

The lady enjoys kicking people out if they talk bad about her restaurant... terrible. Marija's Place is down the street... much better.

This place is an average breakfast place. It is no cheaper than marijas down the street and far worse. I asked for a ham and mushroom omelette (a combination of 2 items on the menu). The proprietor pointed at the menu like I was an idiot and said " you get ham and cheese or you get mushroom, not both). I have worked as a breakfast cook and this request was not unreasonable, especially when the place was empty. We were treated rudely the rest of our visit. With so many quality restaurants in this area, don't waste your time going here.

Great local breakfast and lunch spot. Portions are massive and the food is fresh and well prepared.
