“Best breakfast in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

The place is always packed, which is about the best indicator there is about a restaurant in my opinion. The staff is excellent and, as another reviewer said, makes you feel like an old friend. They serve breakfast all day for good reason - it's the best in town. The French Toast is probably the best I've ever had and everything that comes with it is top notch. They offer a wide selection of breakfast meats - bacon, sausage, even scrapple, as well as corned beef hash, sausage gravy and chipped beef. I leave after eating a brunch so filling I make it to dinner with no problem.

“My all-time favorite local diner!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

This place has the comfort food, comfort level and comfort service that draws the locals in. Not only the the staff greet you like an old friend, the food tastes as good as you would expect it should if you have to pay for breakfast. The bacon is crisp, the pancakes are fluffy, the french toast is perfect and the home fries are what they should be. The coffee is piping hot and always served with a smile. You have the choice of sitting up at the bar, where if you are lucky enough, you get to speak with Rami, one of the owners... and or Fareed, his cousin. This place isn't quite the "hidden" gem, as the crowds are there, but I'd still like to say that they haven't been truly discovered just yet. If you want a fabulous breakfast, and/or lunch, go there. The seats are comfy, the place just oozes neighborhood and the food is fresh and delish.
