“UNBELIEVABLY HORRENDOUS”

Get this: Ignored for 3 minutes at the door. 40 minutes (no exaggeration) for one plate of breakfast to arrive incorrect, incomplete, overdone, and cold (while 5 other tables were seated, greeted, and served hot food). Sent it back without yelling or getting nasty. Another 15 minutes goes by and the server says
"Would you like anything else?" We say
"Other than the original order? No" She says
"Oh, you wanted us to remake it?" No, we were just sitting here basking in the afterglow of miserable service and cold food! The kicker: they presented us with a bill for the full amount. Wow...

We ended up going across the street to Bread Alone and the difference was night and day (see my review for them).

I have been many times to this local eatery. Most of the clientele are the locals who know a good meal, with good service and value. The menu has a large selection bound to please even the finicky eater. This diner is a throwback to the 1950's and is worth every effort to visit.
