“Good traditional diner!”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

Pros:
- I want to give it 3.5 stars, but not sure how, so had to go with 3
- Excellent Service and super friendly staff
- The ice cream shake is delicious
- The decor is retro and great, love the picture of Paul Newman in the ladies's bathroom
- Food was abundance
- Fruits were good not soggy like other diners
- Menu was great, lots of choices with cute titles (i.e I had the Everything in Kitchen Sink Omellette)
- Hash brown was yummy and good texture, usually other places are too burned and or soggy, this was just right

Cons:
- The food was a 'bit' greasy, I know it's a diner, but could be a bit less greasy
- Very little vegies (i.e more spinach and tomatoes and etc... in both of the adult egg dishes)
- Bread was toasted a bit too dark (almost burned - we could have told them to exchange and I'm sure they would have, but didn't want to intrude)
- Biscuit with Gravy was all gravy and hardly any meet
- Didn't have raw sugar and coffee was light ;-)

“Nice funky breakfast spot”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

I went in there for the first time for breakfast with a friend on an April Sunday morning. The place was crowded but got a table with 10 minutes or so (you can tell many regulars come here). I had the eggs benedict. It was good, came with hash browns and assorted seasonal fruit. The Hollandaise sauce was a little under seasoned but was fine. Nice atmosphere that harkens you back to diners in the 1950's. Friendly staff with good service. I would go back again in the future.

“Perfect before the Theater”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

We stopped in for dinner before going to the theater. Had a delicious appetizer sampler and salads all around. Salads were fresh and the perfect light dinner prior to the Theater.
