First time in USA and friends brought us here for our first experience of an American breakfast.

Friendly staff in a unique environment, coupled with good variety of foods.

Fantastic.

“Classic Diner? Better Than That!”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

The weekend brunch selections are without equal! Lobster Benedict leads the group, but Stuffed blueberry french toast, pesto grits, cheese grits with poached eggs and home fries... please, I'm drooling!!

“Amazing food!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

First I have to say, that the food here is absolutely amazing. It is no wonder that there is a line out the door every time I have ever eaten here...people outside waiting to be seated no matter the weather.

The service is fast and good. The food is awesome. The only down side is that the seating can be cramped and uncomfortable and the main dining room can seem a little dirty.

BUT - the food more than makes up for it.

The best bet is to go with a part no bigger than 3 or 4 people. This place would get FIVE stars if it wasn't for the seating. Still its one of my favorite places to eat breakfast in Providence.

“This is what a diner should be . . . EAT HERE!”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

EAT HERE!

Daughter and son-in-law brought us here when we visited Rhode Island for the weekend. Classic diner! Giant menu! Large portions! Good prices! Great food! We ate breakfast in the funky original old diner section. I wouldn't have it any other way. Loved it!

My wife, who is not a big eater, ordered an omelet with home fries. She ate the entire serving that filled a platter. She said it "was to die for." Busy place. We had about a five minute wait to be seated on a Sunday morning. All of us thoroughly enjoyed our breakfasts, and a couple even brought home the left overs. Next time we visit, we are definitely going back, even if it is a half hour away from where we stay.

EAT HERE!
