We stopped for lunch after seeing the reviews. Our waiter was hilarious! Food consists of diner food, I had chicken wings and waffles. Although it was chicken wings, it was very good still. Prices are very reasonable!

Totally packed because of Cherry Blossom Festival, but the waitress was unflappable and the food was amazing - especially for the price.

The food was just ok but the staff was great and attentive. I wouldn't go out of the way but not a bad spot if it's convenient.

When you come to America you know for sure that good waffles, eggs and bacon are always available in a city diner. This one is really bad, low quality food, burned bacon, flavorless waffles and poor service. Very well located next to touristic attractions but...More

This place is extremely small, crowded. Not worth waiting for. We even went later at 11am. So many people, nobody to help, "line starts here" sign written on a piece of paper where NOBODY would notice. The nostalgic aspect might be there but i wouldn't...More

Be prepared to wait a bit as the place serves about 50 people but clearly it's great because people do wait. Very fast service and good, cheap food! Looks a little dive-y but the counters are granite and the place is packed so how bad...More

Can someone tell me what scrappie is. I googled it and it came up with a scrap dealer or a fatal disease for sheep and goats ! Not sure I want to eat that. Thanks from an ignorant Brit.

Response from Barbara C | Reviewed this property |
I did not see Scrappie on the menu. I ate pancakes and bacon and it was very good. The place was very crowded but everyone ate and moved on so no one had to wait. It must be a local favorite and a hidden gem.

I don't recall anything on the menu specifying or highlighting gluten free bakery items. However, considering their helpful attitude, I would recommend calling them in advance and asking. They might offer a few things.

A little late on this response, but I walked by there on a Sunday morning in September and the line was out the door! People have found out about this place! However, on a weekday, 7:30 isn't too bad. It's also busy... More
