Railroad diner that appears POPULAR, so seating is tight. Counter service available. Food better than average, wide range of interesting choices.

Lunch is fine but breakfast is special. Good coffee. Friendly waitresses. Omelettes the size of baseball gloves. And while the Eggs Benedict could clog an artery it's a sinfully delicious way to start the day. Particularly with "Rainy Day Women" on the juke box.

This place is pretty much everything I want from a diner. The food, the people, the atmosphere, and the prices -- wonderful. I wish I lived closer so I could come more often. Some times I think their pancakes are as good as pancakes get.

We were a bit hesitant to go in as the sign outside looked rather tired but decided that wasn't a reason not to go in. The moment we entered, we loved it, an old-fashioned diner! The service was great, our server made us feel almost...More

This is a proper old-school American diner serving pancakes, omelettes, and home fries for breakfast. They even have working jukeboxes at the booths. Friendly, efficient service and very reasonably priced. Only downside is the restrooms could do with sprucing up.

No idea! We were there in October for dinner and arrived before the rush. It is small, but very worth it!
