Breakfast is fine here. The building is perhaps more interesting than the food in my opinion. Generous menu and portions. Very inexpensive. Cash only.

We eat here at LEAST once a week, usually on the weekends, usually for breakfast. We sit at the counter, where the service, the company and the food is always great. We get to watch the cooks and servers work their magic!!

This is a good place to get a nice meal at reasonable prices. Atmosphere of an old fashioned diner with friendly waitresses. You can eat at the diner bar or in booths. Bring cash... they do not take credit cards or checks although they have an ATM available.

Although I appreciate the nostalgic decor, it's 2017 and time to take credit cards. I saw several people see the "Cash Only" sign, turn around and walk away. Luckily we had cash. The service is fast, efficient; however, the food is mediocre at best. Breakfast is probably your best bet since it seems to be what they do best. The... More

If you like greasy diners, this is the place for you. My husband loved it. For me it was just ok. It does have a retro diner feel. I had a patty melt. It was ok. The hamburger was very thin, but I ejoyed the rye bread it came on. My husband had some kind of combo breakfast with eggs,... More

Friendly and comfortable place. Food for breakfast was very good! portions are large and well priced. The coffee was excellent! Cash only, so be sure to bring cash or you may need to pay a fee to use the ATM machine inside the restaurant.

Had lunch. Not going back. Some of the most flavorless food I've ever eaten. I expected a small town diner with great food. I got a Wonderbread sandwich with soup from a can...watered down. Very disappointing.

Nice diner type spot that is a piece of local history. The counter is a classic that brings back the fifties.
