“Great Breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2013

The diner was recommended by a neighbor for breakfast, she wasn't wrong. It is an old fashioned diner and extremely popular. We both had omelets with homefries and muffins, both were very tasty. I had a red velvet muffin, mmmm, it was so good, very different.

The service was excellent, our waitress came back several times.

By the time we left there was a line out the door.

“a classic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2013

Every bit a classic local diner - from the decor to the waitress uniforms to the menu. Great basics like Yankee Pot Roast, fresh turkey, meatloaf. Breakfast is great - never been disappointed. And reasonably priced. Pass up the near-by franchise places and have a real meal.

“more hype than truth”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2013

once you look past the nostalgic feel of the diner with the male manager wearing a tie and "supervising" the female waitresses like worker bees, you'll realize the food is not good, the seating is small and uncomfortable and may have just wasted 30 minutes of your life.

“Just Your Average Diner”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2013

The pastrami sandwich here is good. The breakfast is OK. The waitstaff is good but it is still just your average diner.
