I always try to eat here when in Palmer. Good, standard "diner food," reasonably priced and of good quality. Their selection of desserts, especially pies, is excellent. And they make a great breakfast, served all day!

The food is standard diner fair and is pretty good, as well as being reasonably priced. HOWEVER... The service in the Open Café has a long, long history of being quite terrible. I am a local and every couple of months I forget how truly...More
