“Donuts!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

Most things at this diner ore good, but not our of the ordinary, but their homemade donuts are to die for! Just be careful for they are addicting. Service is good and the place is always busy in the mornings

“Back to the fifties diner”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012

Set by a lovely lake, this diner hasn't changed since the 50's. Formica counters, posters of Jimmy Dean and Lucille Ball. Original ads for coke, etc. Atmosphere is a trip and food is okay, with large portions, but wear and tear are evident. Very busy on weekends.

“A friendly place with good food and a great view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

It just a nice friendly place with a lovely view on a pond, you're always intertain by the ducks and geese. It's a family atmoshere that welcomes you to be a part of it, starting at the top with Jane the owner on down throught the wait staff. The enjoyment starts from a truly good cup of coffee on to my favorite a bialy (possibly spelling is wrong, they are the smaller bagel) with fried egg, cheddar chesse and tomato. It's atleast once a week for me, but you better choose your time right because it's a popular place for breakfast or lunch!

“Friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2012

Friendly staff and scenic location for a diner. The big windows are inviting and enjoyable from the counter or tables below. Enjoyed sitting at the counter and watching the service in action. Enjoyable coffee, home made donuts and the price is right.

“Little Donuts are SOOO good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2012

We have been here a few times. Its a fun little Diner with great donuts and fantastic Waffles. (I get the RED WHITE and BLUE) Bananas strawberry and blue berry. Coffee is decent and did I mention the little yummy donuts??? Dunk em. The only reason 4 stars is its a royal pain to park. but the service is fast and you can look at a lake.
