“Good Times”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

This is a fun place. It is also known as the "Lake Helen Diner." We were initially confused about this.

The ambiance is mostly what you'd expect in a diner, with a few decorative flairs that make it interesting. They also have a kids area, and there is a beautiful park right next door.

The food was reasonably priced and good. It was not "great," as everyone had told us, but that is, of course, subject to personal opinion. In keeping with the "family" atmosphere, they don't serve alcohol. That was a not a factor in our decision, but something to note if you're looking for a cold beer or glass of wine.

They have live music every weekend. We'll likely go back for that.

In the end, I would not make a special trip to eat here, but if you are in DeLand, Lake Helen or Cassadaga, it's worth a drop-in. We were glad to be able to help support the city.

“Friendly Service, Great Atmosphere!”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

We literally stumbled upon this little gem of a restaurant while travelling through Florida. The place is very clean, attractively bright & quirky. The lunch menu is your basic diner style food (sandwiches, burgers, etc.) Since we only ate lunch there, we didn't get a chance to check out their breakfast or dinner menu. The customer service is excellent. In regards to seating, there are booths, tables and counter top service. The prices are very reasonable.
If you pass through (or live in) Lake Helen, I highly recommend you stop here for lunch.

“Great place!”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

If you are in the area, be sure to eat at this fabulous diner. The food is really good and the prices low (much less expensive than similar style restaurants). The staff is really friendly too. This is a regular spot for us so the other review saying it's dirty and the food isn't good must have mixed this restaurant up with another one. When we were there at the beginning of the year we happened to sit at the bar next to the health department inspector who said it's the cleanest restaurant he's ever inspected. Go figure! Don't miss this one.
