Small little place, you can almost miss it. My sister and I arrived within 15 minutes of opening and it's a good thing we did. Within 10-15 more minutes the place filled up.The food was great and can get almost anything for breakfast cooked anyway you desire. Speedy.

literally 8'x14' room...enough for 5 tables that each sit 4 plus a bar w approx 8-10 stools. you wait outside until a table has opened up. the food is amazing. so many options from bagels to oatmeal to eggs to sausage gravy and biscuits. great prices too. def a "diner" feel and they sure do know how to cook.

The diner is small but has an old fashion counter. SEric is quick. All the food is great and can be split because the servings are too large for one. If you want a reasonable meal with no frills this is the place to go

Small place with four tables and a counter with about ten chairs. The service was quick, attentive and very friendly. I had an old fashion BLT and fries. A must-stop just to say you did it!

Great food large selection of choices from Breakfast to lunch to Dinner. Taste like good homemade cooking. Especially good because for such great cooked food its still not expensive at all. Great for the visiting family on a small budget.

This is a shoe-box sized diner, but is big in popularity with visitors and locals. There's all-day breakfast, homemade comfort food, jumbo burgers, shakes, pies. Attentive service; you know it's good when the locals eat there. Located in the middle of Main Street, Cooperstown.

Stop in for a great burger; good shake, too! Tiny place, but has character. Place had been around almost 100 years.

This very small diner is like stepping back in time. We had breakfast here before visiting the Hall of Fame which is across the street. The service was friendly and the food was great. A neat place to eat.
