“Home-cooked food with a smile”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

Great little spot for breakfast with a smile, a refill on your coffee, and a full belly (without emptying your wallet)!

“Great diner food”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

We were only staying in Syracuse overnight, then getting up early for another long car ride to our ultimate destination. We found this place by accident - just wanted a good, solid, filling breakfast before getting back on the road. This place is your basic diner - but a really good one! The atmosphere, the decor, everything - diner. The service is fantastic - couldn't have been more attentive if they tried. But the important part - the food. Wow! May I suggest that unless you are a trucker or a linebacker, you share entrees? Because they are HUGE! My son ordered pancakes and scrambled eggs and bacon. The pancakes came on their own plate and hung over the edges! They had to be 10 inches across! They were fluffy, they were delicious, they were amazing - but they were GIANT! My husband and I both had standard egg plates, and again - HUGE. Delicious - absolutely tasty and delicious, and the italian bread as my toast was SO fresh and good, but I think if we go back - and we will - we will share a dish, because the portion was truly enormous.

If you like diner food, and you love good, solid "Mom" breakfasts, don't miss this little gem in East Syracuse. Highly recommended.

“Forgotten Order”
Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

This is a small diner set back from the main road. We stopped in for breakfast based on a recommendation from the hotel we had stayed at. The home fries were very good, crispy and not greasy but our waitress forgot to place our order and as guests were being served who came in after us I started to get up to mention it when our waitress came over with our food and gave us a really insincere excuse. But, I would go again.

“HOme cooked at its best”
Reviewed March 7, 2013 via mobile

In a sea of average places to eat...EAT HERE! A flavor of Syracuse. Excellent home files, fresh foods at breakfast and nice people serving you, so why eat ata chain breakfast. Nothing more explains it more. Worth trying
