“Best, most reasonable, freshest place to eat around here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

We found this place kind of by accident because we didn't want any of the plethora of "chain" places available. So glad we did! And then we find it's actually kind of a chain, itself, at least in Virginia and Maryland.We wound up eating here several times. All food was prepared fresh, often organic, and delicious. Highly recommend eating breakfast any time of day or night for the fresh blueberry pancakes. The shakes were also delicious and they served you the extra in the silver shaker instead of saving it or making it into 2 drinks. Great value and great food. Place is cute to look at also. Very 50's diner ish.

“Local, farm to table, vegan, gluten free, and classic diner food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013 via mobile

They have something for everyone here. Traditional diner food, buttermilk pancakes/sausage and eggs. More adventurous options like coconut French toast.
The menu is labeled which items are locally sourced, low fat or cholesterol, vegan, gluten free.
The menu is extensive and all the breakfast items looked amazing.
Eat here!

“Went back twice in one weekend!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

The restaurant is very clean and the staff is super friendly. I loved that it is farm to table, not something you find to often in a diner. As for the food my husband had the turkey platter and he absolutely loved it. I had the flat iron steak which was their special and it was tasty just a bit tougher than I had hoped. I realize it is not the most tender of cuts but this one was a bit more than most. Their mashed potatoes are very good and so is the garlic spinach, We did like the food enough to go back a couple of days later for a late brunch since they serve breakfast all day. I had the eggs benedict which was very good and my husband had the corn beef hash which he said was tasty, Coffee was decent as well. Overall a clean and friendly place to eat at which was close to the hotel we were staying at.
