“Average”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

Comfort food abounds here and the restaurant seems to be quite popular. We ate breakfast here and it was fine; the eggs weren't overcooked and the sausage was flavorful. So we brought friends with us for lunch and that wasn't very successful. The reuben was grilled with a lot of butter and didn't have a lot of dressing or sauerkraut. The fish sandwich was fine although of a shape that screams formed and frozen. The burger was dry but the country fried steak sandwich was good. I don't think any of us will return.

“HOME COOKING AND WELCOMING STAFF!”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

When you first walk in, you see it isn't anything fancy. Here you get what you see. Honest friendly faces, people who seem to be "regulars" and decent food.
You are greeted with a big "HI" and told to please sign in. You should remember to look at what numbered line you sign as they tend to call by number. However, if you forget they will start calling out your name. Most of the time people are waiting for a table but for some reason it doesn't take long. How they can move people in and out with the ability to still make you feel they've taken time to talk w/you is beyond me. Friendly is the "key" word here.
Each day there is a special omelet for breakfast and a sandwich at lunch (Only 2 meals they are opened for). If you're a spinach lover then Tues is Spinach day as that is the only day they have it fresh. Sticklers for freshness.
Reasonable prices, good food and feeling like you're more than just a customer.....a friend.
Guarantee you'll enjoy it.

“Average small diner”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Average food..Breakfast is better than lunch. Diner decor. Adequate wait staff - but they are far more interested in chatting with each other than waiting on tables

“Just stopped in”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

We were driving down 27 and seen this little cafe. Lots of cars, so we stopped for breakfast. Had to sign in and wait for a table, but not long. Waitress was great, very friendly and kept bringing coffee. Great breakfast, hot and cooked to ordered. Just eggs but they were done right. Give it a try if you are near this place. We would go back if we were in the area!
