Small town hole in the wall type of place that serves up some pretty good food at reasonable prices. We went there on the recommendation of a local. Good service with daily specials.

Clean & friendly diner to visit. Good food, huge pancakes although the hash browns were average as they were cooked with other food on the grill. Definitely worth the stop while visiting Williamsburg. Just a short 10 minute drive from Great Wolf Lodge.

Her toasted 3 cheese melt was not melted or properly toasted. Cheese between thick bread slices coated with something like pan & grill, then lightly coloured. More like a strange tasting 3 cheese thick bread sandwich. Not nice! Cheese & bacon burger was fine.

We decided to try this for breakfast and it was great. The omelette was wonderful and everything is fresh. They don't use traditional tiny pieces of toast, so be prepared to eat full slices of toast.

They do have gluten free pancakes on the menu. I'm not so sensitive that I worry about cross contamination so I didn't ask how careful they are.
