“No pretensions”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2013

Yeah, it's old and could use a makeover from Chef Robert Irvine, but the food is familiar and plentiful. It's as good a place as any for breakfast if you're in the neighborhood. The French toast is just like homemade and the omelets are satisfying.
What you see is what you get, and that's just fine with us.

“Good local breakfast place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2013

This is the kind of classic local breakfast joint every town in America needs. Everyone goes here, the food is ok, the atmosphere is homey, the decor is old, and a little smelly. The great thing is, when power was knocked out here for a week due to the storms, they were open, and warm, and friendly.

“Just a habit”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2013

Seems people keep going out of habit. Inflation fighter used to worth it. Prices went way up and coffee is ridiculous. Over $2.00 a cup. Refills come quick so you are only getting a little more, then it seems to take forever. Some of the staff are ok but not great. Potatoes are half cold and the spices used are so old fashioned. Place could use a cleaning too.

“Great little greasy diner type place!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 December 2012

This place has been open since I was a child (although now I think it's just called The Mug Restaurant? same basic concept...) The food isn't anything exceptional, but it's dirt cheap and it really hits the spot when you want a nice diner-style breakfast. There's some kind of egg dish with cheese sauce all over it-- I'm sure it's a heart attack on an english muffin, but it's really great when you have a hangover, or just need some serious cheese. I hope this place never closes-- I went here as a child!

“Don't get to excited......it's just breakfast”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2012

70's look, bit dark inside. In desperate need of an update. Food was OK. really nothing exciting.
So go there if you're hungry: don't go for the experience ;)
