“Cute diner!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

What a fun place! It felt like the quintessential American diner to me, complete with fun soda fountain concoctions. The chicken salad sandwich was very good and my husband liked his chicken kabob salad. Note: It's cash only. Thankfully for us there was an atm just across the street.

“It's where the locals go”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

This is a small, local restaurant with simple, American food. Sandwiches, meals, ice cream. It is not fancy, but it is very comfortable and casual. The wait staff is friendly and hard working. They were originally a Brigham's Ice Cream shop, but now Brigham's has stopped making the store sized containers so they are serving another brand - still good. Great sodas and sundaes for an afternoon stop or desert.

“Good food, fair price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

Party of six enjoyed our Saturday breakfast at Helen's. We all enjoyed different pancakes and french toast and found all very good. Try the 4 pancakes each filled with a different fruit or chocolate chips. The waitress was efficient in refilling our beverages. Cash only.
