This cafe is about 15 minutes from the falls. Nice, inexpensive place to get breakfast or lunch. We loved our foods, especially the soup. Real life diner with fine service. And a small menu.

Enjoyed a great breakfast at a little local diner on our way back home after visiting Niagara Falls. Good food at an affordable price. Service was friendly and the place was very clean. We'll be back the next time we are in the area.

I ordered the cinnamon roll pancakes. Ate 2 1/2, but would have better to have shared them. They were delicious and deserve all the accolades people havecwritten on them. Spouse had the Buffalo chicken salad. She said it was excellent. I would go back.
