We headed out of Bolton downtown and luckily came across this awesome diner! Fast friendly service - owners welcome you right in! Shirley makes delicious homemade cinnamon raisin bread - a must try! Thank you for starting our days off right!

We were a party of 6 and they couldn't handle taking the order. I got burnt sausages and burnt pancakes. The rest of the group complained to no avail but, neve got anywhere. We all paid more than the food was worth (overpriced). Would never,never go back.

Last Sunday with only seven bucks cash, a debit card and some credit cards left in my pocket I was unable to enjoy a light breakfast while my family enjoyed Adirondack Xtreme Park. This place located in an area of very expensive properties could not accommodate me because of their CASH ONLY policy. If I were the owner I would... More

The service was acceptable. The food was disappointing and overpriced. Blueberry pancakes tasted peculiar. Home fries, which were an extra cost, undercooked and hard. A big disappointment, as it was my first time eating at this establishment. I did so, because of other positive reviews I read on TripAdvisor. Very disappointed.

Not much to look at on the outside and nothing fancy, but good basic breakfast and lunch for under $10.

It's a hometown diner with fantastic food and service. The fried chicken BLT is so incredibly good ... not a chicken patty, but a sliced thin buttermilk battered cutlet. Also in our party we had tuna melt, cheeseburger with bacon, and the quesadilla's. No complaints. Best meal that we had in Bolton. Keep it up :-)

This "diner" is not really a diner at all, but a cozy, homey place to have breakfast or lunch. It is good home-cooked food and it is very reasonably priced. Service was quick (hardly sat down before the waitress had coffee in front of us). They are very friendly and personable. Again, a great place to have a good home-cooked... More

Simple but solid. The "special" was a lot of food and good. Some good local conversations going on as well. All local people eating this morning.
