Very good breakfast food. While vegans might have a hard time here, they are vegetarian options, and they subbed mushrooms and peppers for the sausage in the delicious breakfast burrito. French toast also excellent, hash browns cooked just right. Kids liked watching the cooks. Friendly service.

Wanted good old fashion diner food for breakfast and stumbled upon this place and we were very happy!!! Food was delicious and the portions were perfect. So loved their coffee that they grind themselves. Even though we ate the basic breakfast fare they are known for banana foster waffles, breakfast burritos, and a St. Louis speciality called a "slider" which is eggs with a hamburger patty smothered in chili!!

Any place where the wait staff knows the regulars you know is a good place to eat!!! It was a very yummy way to start the day

Every day from 6 AM until 2 PM, this is a very good restaurant to satisfy your hunger. The diner is located in a strip mall about a mile west of Interstate 170 on Olive Street in Olivette, MO, near ST Louis. It first opened in 1966 but I discovered it in 2000.
I've been there many, many times and never disappointed. The seating capacity is about 40, so you may have to wait for a table. On a good day they have 2 or 3 cooks and two waitresses. Expect to have to wait a few minutes after you get your table. Use this time to study the menu. On my last visit I ordered the three egg omelet with pepperjack cheese, sausage, bacon and hollandaise sauce. My companion ordered the St Louis melt, three slices of turkey and bacon on rye. Add two cups of coffee (bottomless cup) and get change back from a twenty.
The waitress always asks if we want desert but after the omelet and sandwich, we're both at capacity.

This is the type of place that has morning regulars seated at the counter eating breakfast and drinking their coffee. It is easy to see why they have such a following. A Diner located in a strip mall doesn't have a ton of atmosphere and don't expect individualized service. They are quick and to the point but turn out great food! Bring cash because they don't take plastic. Seating is limited and they can't accommodate groups larger than 4.
