“Classy nice!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

OK, this is not a fancy place but if you like to get back in time a few years and enjoy a classy place and food for breakfast (or lunch), this is it. I love the food choices, the way it tastes, the way is served and the atmosphere. And the prices are good too. In many 15 years in Traverse City I've been here numerous times and I will keep coming.

“DISAPPOINTING!!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2013

Very disappointed in the quality of the food! Lettuce on Greek Salad was wilted and discolored! Bananas in banana cream pie were black and not edible and the crust was disgusting! This piece of pie should never have been served to anyone. I can't believe a restaurant would serve food in this condition! We will never go back! Food was over priced!

“Best Breakfast, best Prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2013

This is a diner, not a fancy restaurant, but don't let that fool you! This is my favorite breakfast spot in Traverse City. Their daily morning special is $1.99 for 2 eggs, hash browns, and toast. The service is great and personable. They keep the coffee fresh and abundant. They have a big breakfast menu and I can also recommend their cinnamon bread French toast. The eggs are always cooked nicely and the quality of food is good. Can't get a better meal for the money.

Great alternative to traditinal fast food for a quick meal! Best cherry milkshake and onion rings. Kids meals came in a cardboard convertible "box"

“Why God made diners...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2013

Usually go for breakfast (when my wife doesn't make me cook). Food is great, hot & fast, specials are a bargain and the help is always smiling! Wis they were open Sun. AM, but hey, everyone needs a day off.
