Not sure about winter, but during the summer with the doors open and the outdoor seating, it's wonderful. We ordered a couple appetizers and a grilled pizza for lunch. Food only took 15 minutes and was delicious. All of the servers were very nice.

Have been to Buddies a few times since they opened. The food is always hot, fresh, with wide varieties daily and very reasonably priced. They have the best breakfast around, but the lunch and dinners are equally as good. Very unique little diner! Everything on...More
