take something warm with you as we froze under the vents so needed to move to a diff. table. Thought it was a bit pricey here but the Reuben sandwich and tuna salad and the clam chowder soup was the best we had. Service was great and nice clean washrooms.

Our first time there, my wife had the Spinach Omelet. I had Bacon, Eggs, French Toast. Only thing better than the food was the service. If you're lucky, you'll get Trista! But all the servers were fawning over all the diners. Homey feel.

A typical diner with good and ample food. We met family here for breakfast and all enjoyed the meal. Service was quick and friendly.

Very good food, diner food. Waitress was excellent. We had great fish & chips...the fries were thin cut & very crispy. Hubby had an avocado burger with onion strips that were to die for!

typical diner food, no surprises, but good enough when you're hungry and the location was just where we needed it to be - right off the interstate, especially on a snowy afternoon when we didn't want to venture too far.

my husband had breakfast (it's served all day) - the only disappointment was the hamburger patty served with his eggs - not the usual chopped steak he expected. i had a chili burger and a chocolate shake - perfectly fine and just what i wanted.

generous portions and reasonably priced
