“Dump”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

Recently stopped in to meet a friend for coffee. I did not order any food. Just looking at the exterior of the place told me I was in for trouble. No better inside the door, either. I have no idea if the food is any good, so I leave that up to those of you who are brave enough to enter and sit in a place in such bad physical shape. All I can say is that this place is in desperate need of some renovations and cleaning. There were a few customers who apparently like this setting. Perhaps if I could close my eyes, I would like the food. I just could NOT get by the extremely poor conditions of this diner.

“Awesome! Cheap and delicious diner food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2009

The owner and cook is great. Greek omelet is to die for. Looking for a cheap and authentic hearty breakfast? This is it.
