We chose the Star Diner because the venue looked welcoming and they served an all-day breakfast. My 2-egg breakfast was done to perfection, as was hubby's 3-egg hungry man meal. I would go there again.

Friendly owner and staff. They seemed to know most of the customers. The lady recognized me when I showed up the next morning, and she remembered what I had the morning before.

It was just what we expected - a small local, hectic diner with great food and super staff. Good portions and a typical diner menu.
