The food is tasty, and the service is usually good. They keep your coffee cup filled, and try to do a good job of quickly turning tables when it gets busy. We've frequently dined at the White Rose, and every time we hope that smoking will be abolished. Sadly, this is not the case. Although they have have both a... More

The day of the old-time diner - or in this case a reasonable replica of one - serving a large menu of diverse items while a fog of smoke settles on everyone and everything is over. We felt sick the rest of the day after sampling the fare here and being subjected to a nasty stink we didn't expect. Never... More

This is a great restaurant to have home made breakfast. It is casual, nice atmosphere, 60's diner style. The servings are generous.

This little restaurant brings me back to my childhood diner. The staff is friendly. The food is made to order and prepared just like you want it. If you want breakfast for lunch they accommodate your preference with a smile. The only thing that would make this diner better is if they did not have smoking. However they do have... More

My husband, kids and I enjoyed our lunch at the White Rose. Three of us has breakfast for lunch and my daughter had the toasted ravioli. The breakfasts were very tasty. The biscuits and gravy were large portions and very good. The ravioli was fine- nothing outstanding. The waitress was very friendly and we would stop again.

This is a classic dinner and piece of union history, breakfast and the staff were fantasric. The only thing is the smoking in the building, being from Florida we were used to cigarette smoke with breakfast. But everything else was wonderful!
