“If you find yourself in downtown Fort Wayne, it's worth the stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2012

We asked our front desk clerk for a good breakfast place and she recommended the Garbage at Cindy's, which didn't sound as good as it was. The diner is a small train car approximately a 15-28 counter seater. There are not any tables, just tight seats at the counter. We went on a Saturday morning around 10am and it was full except for 2 stools at the end on the corner. We grabbed them and watched the action. We ordered the Garbage as instructed and we're not disappointed. If you have little kids or are really really large, you might not appreciate this place as much. Quick and tasty breakfast with a unique atmosphere.

Seating is VERY limited, but the food is classic, service is prompt, and people are friendly.

“Add on to the overall downtown experience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2011

The location is excellent for downtown adventures. Keep in mind it's a diner as it relates to the menu. I took my kids there after visiting the library and they enjoyed the experience of watching the food being made. The staff was friendly and attentive. There's not a whole lot of space, again, it's a small diner.
