“Great breakfast in an old-time diner”
Reviewed July 3, 2012

While staying in Salem, I stopped in this old fashioned diner made from an old train car, the way they used to be, and had a really wonderful breakfast. The bacon was crips and not greasy, nor were the home fries greasy. The poached eggs were cooked perfectly, not runny, and the service was quick - I will definitely go there again if I return to Salem!

Great place, one of your classic rail car type diners. Food is very good, and the other guest are great to talk too.

“With so many good spots, why go here?”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

This place is ok at best. Food is mediocre and it is a dump inside. You leave smelling like grease.
