“Best comfort food-no pretense just good food that brings you back”
Reviewed April 12, 2013 via mobile

Love the chocolate chip pancakes and coffee. Best OJ. I wish it was a bit bigger because it does get crowded sometimes. However, can't beat the food, service and in today's economy-prices. Hope this place stays in Summit for my grand kids to visit-tired of all the fake food franchises taking over ( ie. Starbucks)

“good diner”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

You certainly can't beat the prices or the authentic feel of this old time diner. Hubby and I both had the egg and cheese sandwich, which was refreshingly/surprisingly NOT laden with grease. It hit the spot. My father-in-law had an omelete which came with toast and home fries and the portion size was really generous! Just two things to mention: there is a noticeable stale greasy smell in the restaurant, and one of their cooks whistles incessantly, and given the small size of the place, you will hear every last note. I realize that the latter piece of information will be meaningless to most people, but if you are the type of person at all sensitive to this sort of thing, it may cause you to jump out of your skin. Think I will be inclined to try a different spot for breakfast next time I am in the area.

“Best breakfast in Summit”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

The diner provides excellent food (and plenty of it) for a very reasonable price. It is always crowded, especially Sunday mornings. The pancakes are great. All of the soups are very tasty.
