Trailer sized diner, in place since the 20's (they say) does nothing offensive, nor particularly well. Arriving at 11:20 AM, were advised breakfast menu ends at 11AM (and this is a diner?). Lunch sandwiches unremarkable. Best of the bunch was an excellent cheeseburger on a house made roll that looked like an oversize biscuit. Tasty.

It's a long way between breakfast joints north of Keuka Lake, where we spend some time each summer. This diner is OK, and better than most Penn Yan alternatives, but I wouldn't go out of my way to get here.

Had breakfast ....Great Eggs, pancakes and sausage. Coffee (Finger Lakes Coffee roasters) was the best. Nice staff and really quaint 1940's diner. You won't be disapointed

It was our first time in the Penn Yan area, and had no idea where to have breakfast. We found this diner and decided to try it. We were so glad we did. The place is very small, but quaint, and the food was excellent. We loved sitting at the counter watching the chefs prepare breakfast. Best coffee, always served with a smile. Don't miss the chance to have breakfast here.
