Came here for breakfast on a Monday morning. Tiny little 5 table affair with super friendly staff. There were 5 of us and only one table that could fit five was already taken but they moved for us. You can order one egg here for $1.00. Oatmeal for around $2.50. All five of us ate for $21.00. Can't beat that!... More

food is decent and it is a throwback to a different era. That said, they only take cash and there are very few seats. not things that thrill me.

We just wanted a quick lunch and enjoyed our grilled cheese sarnies. Friendly service with a chat and a smile.

We found this spot by accident. We were looking for a breakfast spot and a local sent us in. It is definitely a small town/diner kind of spot. However, the omelets were large, full of veggies and well made. The toast was good and the coffee hot. The service was friendly. Pancakes are not on the menu. A father came... More

Loved this small-town diner -- with interest catching train and nostalgic photos, foreign money, 50's memorabilia. Friendly and prompt service. Great traditional foods.

Not much room, but enjoy stopping here to see the train go around the dining area. Service can be slow at times and the food is just average, but it is an icon of the town.

My husband and I stopped on the square to grab a quick brunch before getting back on the bike. The walls are post card decor and an electric train runs above on the ceiling. The food and coffee is very good as well as the service. There is a kids menu for $3.95 plus homemade desserts. We will be back..
