This breakfast place has a 'German' atmosphere, but it is a diner. Everything tastes like griddle grease, I would urge the owners to upgrade the griddle and upgrade the grease. Old griddle grease overpowers the waffles, pancakes, french toast, bacon ... you name it. The...More

Not from my memory. We sat at a booth...service was very fast and the backs on the booths are pretty high so there is some privacy.
