This was our first breakfast in Denver and they offer all the usual diner fair. We all had coffee, eggs, toast and our respective choices of bacon,ham or sausage and hash browns. It was served promptly and it carried us through our day. Nice to see the mix of local customers that rely on this diner. The decor is dated... More

They have heaping plates of typical diner fare, plus a bit of Asian/Hawaiian as well. Been here forever and a day, with consistent good service and food. Love the massive pancakes and hashbrowns. Lunches are tasty as well.

Just walk in the door and you are sent back to earlier years without a whole bunch of TV's, fancy art on the walls or fancy menus. Straight forward food cooked by what I assume are the owners/operators.

Perfect place for breakfast if you're near 20th Street. Open from 6:30 every day, they serve unlimited coffee and huge breakfast specials. I had a pancake and egg and bacon and coffee for only $6.70. Waitstaff are friendly and the service is quick. I will be back next time I'm in Denver!

We got there eat 2:30 and they closed at 3:00P so maybe that played a part. The food was OK. I had a chicken noodle bowl, but there was hardly any chicken. My friend got a chicken fried steak with based potatoes and brown gravy. It was OK. The waitress was friendly, but overall I'd say the experience was just... More

I used to ride my scooter here on a regular basis when I lived in my condo downtown. I think that they have one of the best breakfast in Denver. Very much a diner....but always great food.

We really like this restaurant! It's an old diner that hasn't changed much over the years, but the food is great and the service is prompt and friendly. I live in Minnesota now, but when I'm in Denver (about once a year), I try to make sure I get to this restaurant. Over the years, I've taken several people with... More

I thought that the food was great but not stellar. If you're looking for great diner food with some creativity, then go for it. The up side: you can get something besides just eggs and hash browns and it's not too expensive. The down side: it's still a diner. I would come back but wouldn't go completely out of my... More
