Cleanest diner that I have ever visited. Even the windows cleanly sparkled. Nice menu. Serves breakfast all day. Good food and service. My husband enjoyed the French Dip and I had a Corned Beef sandwich. We will return.

For lunch I had a chicken gyro; they were on special. Did the trick. Then we took the family out back for some chocolate dipped (the kind that gets hard) soft serve, which I loved and would return for again. Great classic diner ambience inside....More

We stopped in for dinner after a day exploring the area. The menu choices are good as is the food and service in this old time 50's diner setting. Prices are fair for fresh and tasty meals some using local grown produce.
