This place is a hidden gem. Been going here since i was a kid and it hasnt changed. Food is good American greasy diner deliciousness. Weekends a crazy busy and expect to wait. I like to go during the week when the crowds are small. Famous for the chili cheese omelettes...........

What a wonderful experience, real old fashioned diner with Cherry Coke and fresh hot coffee all day. Not part of a tacky chain and is family run and it shows.
Food is fantastic and the atmosphere is great.
No plastic only cash, but food and drinks for 4 less than $50.
Visited twice on recent holiday(August 2010) but still as good as first visit in July 2003. If ever in Newport Beach again number 1 on the list.
Bottom,line, FANTASTIC!

Being in the service industry, I am now so embarassed that I even suggested the restaurant. The service was horiible. No one acknowledged or greeted the new patrons; all patrons just stood around not knowing what to do next or who was next to be seated. . Not one "CASH ONLY" sign was to be seen. We were a party of 2 and recived ONE menu to share. I was charged for extra sauce for my meal without notice. I don't think I should have had to pay for something that should have already come with the meal.
I was amazed the owner just stood around and wasn't a "HANDS ON" team player. I feel he may need to take a course in RESTAURANT 101 on how to deal with his customers in every situation.
Needless to say, I would NOT return or recommend the cafe to anyone else.

The food is good, and the atmosphere is even better - a great place to get a nice, American breakfast. The chili cheese omelette is very nice
