Food was decent but hard to mess up omelets and egg sandwiches. Prices were ok and service was adequate. My biggest complaint was it's not very clean. This is particularly concerning when what you're seeing on the outside is not great- what are you not seeing? Overall meh experience.

Breakfast served all day. Broad options with some classic hearty options. Eggs Benedict is very good. Omelettes egg is thin skillet fried and rolled with good ratio of filling and cheese. Kids loved the waffles with chocolate chips and whipped cream. Service is attentive and your coffee cup never empty.

First time we ever went to this gem of a diner. Great tasting breakfast at an affordable price. Staff was very friendly and the wait was only 10 minutes on a Sunday morning.

Excellent home style cooking. Very good food. Large portions. Have eaten lunch here as well as breakfast on other occasions. Family in area recommended this restaurant/diner. Up on a hill, a little difficult to find, but well worth the trip. Greek diner.

Great old fashioned diner set up, with super friendly staff and great service. I ordered a special Crabcake eggs Benedict and it was spectacular. The hollandaise sauce was very savory and the poached eggs were perfect! The homemade Wheat toast was some of the best I've had and everyone enjoyed there choices very much. I highly recommend this spot if... More

Stopped in on our drive back from Montreal. It's right off route 89. Dated decor but fresh, tasty food. Breakfast is served all day. We tried the gyro platter (served with salad, pita and spanakopita), Greek salad with lamb, grilled cheese, home fries and French toast. Everything was good but the Greek food was outstanding. Prices are reasonable.

Old- fashioned diners are always fun and this one is no exception, right down to the red (sometimes shabby) booths, stools and a back room with tables. Service is friendly and food is tasty enough. There is an extensive breakfast menu as well as sandwiches and salads, etc. for lunch. The food is fresh but ordinary, prices are reasonable and... More
