Stopped in for lunch on the patio. Staff could not have been more accommodating. Food was super. No room for dessert but it sure looked good as I paid the bill. Convenient location.

We had breakfast on our way to the next leg of our road trip. Thoroughly enjoyed it although the service could have been a little quicker. Always a problem with a popular place with could food. Couldn't fault it otherwise.

I stopped off at Cheryl's late afternoon after a long drive and was famished. The menu offers a wide selection of traditional diner dishes. I had a large salad which was fresh and served promptly. The food is what you'd expect from a good diner...More
