The restaurant is extremely small, but has a typical cozy pre-fab diner style. The food is really good diner food, with tremendous portions and the waitresses are just properly grouchy (just...

Come early on Sundays to avoid the after church crowd. A great quick breakfast. If there's a line out the door, don't worry, it moves fast. A reasonable breakfast for Old Town.

Do get one of the omelettes. Service is fast and professional. There is a reason so many come here...good solid food, great... More

We would take before lunch breaks and go to breakfast from work to table talk. The breakfast is to die for. If you have an opportunity to have breakfast do not pass it up. This place serve the best the best breakfast in town. The portion size is huge!!!

Went here having read the review on here. Weren't disappointed with brunch. Garbage omelette and home fries, hubby had corned beef hash and grits. Constant stream of customers, despite the wet new year weather. A warm welcome, left very satisfied.

Every time we visit Alexandria, this restaurant is on our must do list for breakfast. A long standing traditional "diner" type place with great food and wonderful service at very fair prices

In looking over other reviewers comments I have to scratch my head in confusion and wonder if were in the same restaurant. Outside looks the same, check, pictures look familiar, check. These were probably two of the worst breakfast sandwiches we have ever had. We had the bacon and egg sandwich and the sausage and egg sandwich and for the... More

Loved talking with the staff. And, oh yes, they also have comfort food and soothing libations. :) Totally recommend for those avoiding chains. They cooked my food to order while carefully minding dietary restrictions. Wander in for a drink, then stay for a meal of food and friendship.
