This was a good, clean diner with a variety of choices for breakfast and lunch.
Waitresses were friendly and efficient. I ordered a portabella, avocado panini while my daughter had a breakfast special with a nutter butter shake, everything was great. It's a little small inside but was an off time so it worked out fine. We got a table as soon as we walked in.

We were attracted to the facade of this restaurant as it looked well-established. Cute corner looking place, very ephemeral. Walked in, only about seven tables available in the entire restaurant and about 12 counter seats. One cook working the grill. We went for breakfast and ordered corned beef hash Benedict, an assortment of omelets and other things. Seemed very promising as the place opened in 1927 and by the way was spotless in terms of cleanliness. Food took a while to arrive, when it did, orders were incorrect, no biggie as we could roll with the punches. Food temperatures were mediocre as was the food itself. Friendly service, but incorrect order taking. Had high hopes but after all, it was just breakfast and no harm no foul. Maybe we were there on an off-day. Overall just okay.

This was what I was looking for! After looking for a typical American breakfast place I found this. Food was great.

Great place for breakfast. Lovely home-cooked food. Very popular, especially on a weekend morning. The beef hash was great. Bottomless coffee and a non-touristy feel.

We enjoyed breakfast here, reasonably priced and cooked to order with free refills of coffee. There’s lots of interesting memorabilia on the walls too, of all the famous people who have eaten here.
