the las time I was there the food tasted like it came out of a can, any fastfood place would be about equal. they looked at what we were wearing and acted accordingly, we got poor service and kept being stared at as we didn't fit their religious feelings i guess.

Drop in and have yourself a really good meal. Do the tea also. You meet family, friends and a filling experience. I have never had anything that didn't hit the spot. Fish, chicken, beef, it is all brought to you hot and fresh. Dessert is ready for you too.

Always love breakfast here!! Small diner feel. Personally, I love that they haven't updated. Breakfast is always good, and the Diner Burger is amazing! (Enough to share, if you aren't a huge eater). Love it and wouldn't change a thing!!

I have only eaten breakfast there and have always gotten good food and service. They prepare breakfast foods like you would expect a small diner to serve. They are consistent and are always busy.
