In Fairness, I didn't eat here, but a friend had wanted to try it. Came in, took a whiff, we both walked out. I can't count the number of places I've eaten over the years, but that's happened to me only twice. A mutual friend later told me we "had dodged a bullet". They used to go there when it... More

A friend and I decided to try their breakfast. It was good, nothing spectacular. Just your basic meal. Their desserts are very good.

My husband and I took our grandchildren for "breakfast." We are not local but visit Altoona as a family 4 times a year. The restaurant looked clean and the waitresses were nice. The coffee was okay - not memorable. My husband had no real complaints about any portion of his meal. My granddaughter did not have any complaints about her... More

Lasagna is outstanding. The salad is even wonderful. Just need to get there before 2:00pm, as they are only open for breakfast and dinner.

Stopped in for the first time for breakfast. Observed while I was there that a majority of the elderly folks there were on a first name basis with the staff and that they appear to dine there on a daily basis. Everyone working was friendly and seemed to be up on the local social and interpersonal news. The big breakfast... More

The breakfast here is probably the best in town. The service is usually good, and the food is always tasty. The French Toast is my favorite thing on the menu, and the bacon here is the best. I haven't had lunch here, but I would like too. The people that I know that have had it said it was pretty... More

We were so disappointed with our last few visits. Cold food, poor service. They seemed more interested in chatting with their family/friends at a back table instead of waiting on the few tables of customers that were actually there.

Ate here for lunch while on a business trip. Low end type of place. Food wasn't that great. It boasts Italian food but it doesn't taste at all Italian

We went to lunch here the one day and the food was horrible. It looked like it had been made a couple of days before and tasted like it to. There were bugs flying around. All I can say is YUCK!
