“Incredible food, lousy service.”
Reviewed November 12, 2010

This diner was recommended to us by the concierge at our hotel, it was just 5 blocks walk away.
When we arrived we had to queue for about 15 mins, which we took as a good sign. The hostess was friendly and cheerful!
We were shown to our table and immediately brought coffee and water.
There are 2 menu's one for breakfast and one for lunch/dinner, but the breakfast menu was so extensive i daren't look at the other!
The omelette I ordered was wonderful, and my partners' french toast was just as good too.
Everything was just delicious, spoiled only by our server, she made it seem as though she was bored by us, I didn't feel well looked after, and was discouraged from asking for extra coffee, creamer and juice. A real let down.
I was immensely impressed with this diner, the food, setting and atmosphere are all tip top. Such a shame we were allocated this server, i'm sure all the others were great!

“A good "go out for breakfast " place”
Reviewed June 18, 2009

We had breakfast here when staying across the parking lot at the Inn at Jack London Square. It's a great family restaurant with nice staff and hearty, generous food at a fair price. There were lots of families going out for Saturday breakfast and there was a nice, friendly atmosphere. We would definitely go back again for any meal.

“There's not much healthy...”
Reviewed December 9, 2007

There's not much healthy on the menu but that's not why you go to a place like this anyway. Big portions and good food, great breakfast ... a good alternative for the Denny's crowd.
