A must for a trip back in time. Original soda fountain, with the counter and décor. Had a wonderful long conversation with the owner. Don't pass this gem up.

Great little place in one of the cutest towns you will ever see with great views,quaint buildings and shops. They serve a mean cheeseburger here and the staff is so friendly. This place the town everything about it is Americana like we knew in the 1950's when we were the greatest place to live and were so proud to be an American. If you are in this area or are thinking about a trip up here you can't beat it. And go to Mary Ellen's Place for breakfast or lunch.

Stopped here for breakfast on our road trip; had a good breakfast, even though they were very understaffed for the weekend. The hash browns were too done for my taste, but the other lady who ordered them said they were perfect, so it's a matter of taste! Nice atmosphere, great staff. Definitely worth a stop if you're in the area.

If you are looking for Americana and aren't in a hurry try this little diner out. I say breakfast is the best. Sit at the counter you'll have a great meal and a show on top of it all.

Mary Ellen's is an institution. Good, basic "diner" fare, friendly wait staff and zero attitude. And, they sell the NY Times and the Wall Street Journal. What's not to like?
