The OTC is the real thing. A great breakfast menu with creative comfort food. I had the train wreck. Hash browns, sausage , bacon, onion, green pepper, over east egg, topped with great gravy. They added jalapeños to mine on request. Great fast service and...More

Typical diner. I believe it's quite popular with locals. I wouldn't go out of my way to go here, but would meet friends if it was their choice.

A great simple old school style cafe. Wonderful food with all the basics but also great “new” items too. Ancient grain cakes were really good as were the eggs Benedict Florentine. Staff are very friendly and accommodating.

Good food, friendly and relatively quick service, but incredibly noisy. The staff don’t even pretend to be careful when it comes to hitting plates and glasses together, and the acoustics in the building don’t help matters any. So I really wouldn’t suggest this place for...More

I have been eating at "OTC" for years. Just now realized I've only ever had breakfast there. Love the Eggs Benedict, the Western Eggs Benedict (bacon and avocados) but mostly just the regular two eggs over medium, sausage patties, sliced/grilled potatos and english muffins. My...More

I've driven by this place at least once a week for years. Finally decided to stop in for Breakfast on a weekday and I am glad I did. The atmosphere is like a step back in time. Nothing fancy or pretentious, strictly informal, relaxing and...More
