We ordered the philly omelette and a side of pancake and enjoyed the meal. The service was prompt and the waitress took good care of us. The restaurant was clean and cheerful. The food was delicious

Location sounds really sketchy, lots of people loitering in front of the restaurant and homeless people were in and out all the time. It's definitely not a nice place to eat. Our waiter didn't seem to care about us, nothing was set up, no fork...More
