Great little diner, prices are fair and food is tasty. I love the omelets and pancakes. I usually go during breakfast, which is served all day. I have not tried any lunch or dinner entrees. Great fast courteous services.

Breakfast service was attentive and friendly, like talking to a neighbor. The pancakes were fluffy and delicious. The eggs and sausages with home fries - I'm going back next week.
