Wanted some hot soup on a cold day so thought I would give this diner a try. The beef barley was a bit disappointing, but the BLT sandwich was excellent and the bread pudding made the meal. Ample parking in the rear is a convenience....More

Overpriced and not cooked well. Sorry but I’m not a fan . Locals call it the “Nauseas” . I wasn’t happy with a pretty basic dish (over easy eggs and toast). Not sure what to say about that

The food is ok but it's overpriced. The diners in this area seem to be really charging high prices these days. This drives us to better restaurants with better food for the same price.
