We waited about 20 minutes on a Sunday morning to be seated, which was fine and they seemed to move quickly. Coffee while you wait is always a nice touch. Service when seated was a little slow, but was not a problem. East parking. Menu...More

Extensive menu and we've eaten here for all meals but their breakfast is the standout. Sometimes there is quite a wait but the food is consistently good and if the service or something else is lacking, they will make it right. Great customer service!

The restaurant is a bit hard to find at first. In the large building look for the outdoor seating. Then walk into the building and take a left at the first door. There is lots of seating inside and a nice outdoor patio. The menu...More

Busy as a Manhattan Diner with southern hospitality and a college town touch. Stopped by on the way home fro OBX, off the beaten path but worth the trip. Not a typical diner menu. Eclectic. Kids enjoyed the orange batter French toast (plain batter is...More

Like a true diner, we serve homemade food and breakfast all the time. We have comfy booths, as well as tables, and lots of high chairs and boosters for the little ones! We are a gathering place where locals are sure to see someone they know and visitors are likely to make new friends. We’re a community restaurant both in the sense that we are a local favorite and in the sense that we strive to be good neighbors and give back to our community
