“Go hungry for breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2010

This was a nice alternative to the usual breakfast spots like Yours Truly. Very small dining room so be prepared to wait. The wait staff was very quick to take our order, but once the food came out they never returned with having to catch them from across the room. The food was very good, great homefries and the corned beef hash was the best I've had. Three of us had left overs that came home, which never happens with us for breakfast. So while it was expensive, $60 with tip, we had a $25 gift certificate from restaurant.com that we bought for $2, so it really only cost $41. And there was enough food to take home.

Terrific for breakfasts. A very "diner" atmosphere--crowded & bustling--but worth the wait for a table. Try their fried green tomatoes!
