Driving through Daytona, we noticed this cute little diner that looked like it had a history. "It's been here since 1946," said the waitress, "and it's been in this family for forty years. All the pit crews for the Daytona 500 come here in the morning. Tom Cruise ate here when he was filming Days of Thunder." We had their... More

We visited this diner over the weekend on our way to the oceanfront. Both of us had the strip steak and eggs, the food was good and all of it was reasonably priced. The waitress was a sweet little older lady, she was very pleasant and attentive. You can tell by observing the patrons that this place is a favorite... More

Very good breakfast menu. Our waitress was super nice and by observing....the others were too! We ordered omelets and they were cooked to order and tasted fresh. Biscuits and gravy were good too. Will stop by again when in Daytona.

The breakfast at this restaurant is really good and the coffee is fresh ground; however, when it's not busy, the waitress just stood there and watched us eat. And we no more than sat down and she wanted our order! Can we look at the menu, please? A bit uncomfortable! Reasonable prices, though!

Our family was looking for breakfast and didn't want to eat at a place close to the beach. We saw this place and stopped by. A nice gem! We had a lovely breakfast.. Friendly service.. And it was a good price.

My husband and I were visiting Daytona for the first time. We always love to venture into small diners/restaurants as often times, they have the best food. We saw Gateway and it did not disappoint. Great food, coffee was always flowing, fairly quiet in the early mornings and our waitress gave us several tips on what to do while we... More

Just like the local small restaurants we have in our town. Perfect place for an inexpensive meal made just the way you ask. Prices were fair, service was friendly and prompt. We will be back. Would have given 4 stars, but parking is an issues especially if its crowded.

Food was awesome. My husband and I really enjoyed everything. The pancakes were delicious. We drove around several times before we said lets stop here. Great choice.

We have been here many times for breakfast and the food is good. However, there is ALWAYS some kind of argument/incident between the owners and the wait staff. The owner, his wife and his son all work there. There is always new wait staff and apparently they are not treated very well. The wife takes their tables (along with their... More

I passed this placed many times while visiting Daytona and decided to stop. I'm happy we did because our waitress Trisha was such a sweetheart and made our time enjoyable. We went for breakfast. There were a lot of combinations offered on the menu and even more on a wall menu. We ordered pancakes , eggs, bacon, biscuits and gravy... More
