“Breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012 via mobile

Great breakfast place, good service and value! Chocolate chip pancakes were great. Nothing too different from typical diner food, but the atmosphere is great and the desserts looked awesome!

“Good Basic Breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

If you're looking for a good, basic, reasonably priced breakfast this is the place for you. Word to the wise - avoid the Scrapple.

“Waitress was honest when she said scrapple was disgusting but we still ordered it!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012 via mobile

We had an ok meal - my husband tried scrapple, which was a strange combo of scraps of meats etc., not used in hotdogs...never quite had anything like it. Was like hairy pate and warm...I guess a big Pennsylvania Dutch thing to eat. Could be on a fear factor episode. Other than that it was a typical diner!

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

Great food, decent service. I had a chicken dish (one of the house specialties, forget the name) which had crabmeat and hollandaise on it that was absolutely delicious. Rest of my family had the country fried steak, which was excellent as well. The desert case looked very appealing, but I was full and there were so many choices I couldn't decide anyway.
