It's a small diner with about 6 tables and 14 stools at the counter. The food is great home cooking. The gravy on the hot hamburger was perfect. You can't leave without having the coconut cream pie.

Finally got back here for dinner after leaving the Soo 20 years ago. The pork cutlet dinner is amazing and it's tough to finish it. Best home style cooking in the Soo. No debit machine so bring cash. The deserts are simply the best ever.

The meals are great, plentiful and served with an extremely pleasant attitude. We have been there for lunch and breakfast, never for dinner unfortunately. We'll have to make a point of doing that.

Literally! This diner aired on Food Network's "Ya Gotta Eat Here". Classic diner comfort food and has been around for decades. I highly recommend getting the pie. The pie of the day when I went was Coconut Cream pie and it was to die for!...More

Small town, local cafe where all the local people go for a good, basic breakfast. No frills breakfast: eggs, bacon, home fries and toast done right. Good coffee. Small with counter seating. Very reasonable price.

Everything is made fresh. Portions are massive. You get fresh baked bread and soup with anything you order. The 2 servers are the best!

Had dinner here the other night and it was as good as ever. Basic working man menu in a relaxed coffee shop atmosphere. Excellent food and plenty of it.. with reasonable prices too. You can't go wrong here.
