certainly nothing fancy, but a good place to stop for breakfast or lunch. Great omelets and the desserts looked tempting, though I didn't try one

Very Good for a "Diner", the food at this establishment is excellent. Whether eating alone, with my wife or with the whole family the quality has been consistent each and every time

Name is confusing - is now simply "The Diner". Great breakfast, fast & friendly service. Had the coconut/Captain Crunch encrusted French toast -umm!

Went for breakfast, left full with money left. Someone in the party had sweet waffles and was in heaven. I had a typical american breakfast, it was fine.

Excellent stop for breakfast while out on a bike ride. Very clean, great service and the omlet, wheat toast and home fries were excellent. You can't beat the price.

Stopped in to check this place out for breakfast. What a find! All the hits you'd expect from a diner menu plus some interesting new takes. We loved the jalapeno bacon stuffed french toast! Exactly what we want when we want diner grub!
