Look, sometimes you just need a good home style meal! The selection is very good and so is the food. The service was also great. A definite recommend if you're travelling and need a home cooked meal!

Where the locals hang out. Totally a diner. Known for their breakfasts, they also have good lunches and scrumptious suppers. This is a licenced diner.

Food, service, parking is very good. Servers are very friendly and on a first name basis with most customers. I visit at least once a week to start my day in a welcoming atmosphere.
