We had a real delicious breakfast. Egg, bacon, toast., OJ, and coffee. The service was wonderful. Later that day we had some chicken fingers and fries. The prices were a bit high.

Diner is run by the granddaughter of the founder & its very homey. We felt like part of the family very soon after sitting down. Great comfort food, generous portions - and outdoor seating for when its not too hot.

The restaurant had a decent variety of foods. The grilled chicken was okay, the baked potato was very good. Service was a bit slow, had to ask for iced tea refills. They have a good location in town.
