Fantastic place for breakfast. Great food, amazing service, and amazing value for the large portions you get. We go almost every weekend for breakie and are delighted every single trip! Cudos to the new owners and their great little diner. All the best!

Interesting menu with an Asian influence, the very good looking waitresses and a fun location make this hard to find spot worth a trip. My Reuben sandwich was great, the fries were crisp and the salad was cold & crisp. Definitely worth a repeat.
