Spud Boy takes you back in time with a true diner car experience. Chef Gordie makes a mean omelet or terrific waffles in the cozy atmosphere that is truly a walk back in time. The place fills up early on weekends, especially, so plan ahead!

It's a tiny place with limited menu but it's delicious. The sausage and bacon are great. Had the waffles which are cooked to perfection. Omelets yummy as well. The train car is very neat!!
