We stopped at the Gateway Diner the other day for breakfast. We had eggs and home-made corned beef hash and an omelette. Both were very good. Our server was very nice.

A diner is a diner, but there are great and poor ones. This one is bright and well-lit, clean and well-appointed. No 20yr old lumpy booths! The food is well prepared in large portions. And the dessert case, although not sampled, is reason for return....More
