My favorite little place for breakfast in Salem. Only about 5 tables and a small counter. Little "greasy" diner but Lelsie is very friendly and the breakfast portions are very hearty and the food is excellent.

Reminded me of another dirty spoon in Salem called joseys restaurant. Very dirty and food was terrible. If you've had the unfortunate experience of eating this slop, get a Tetanus shot right away! Unsanitary and filthy. Customer service? What customer service?
