This a little, hole-in-the-wall hidden gem! The breakfast is fantastic, the portions are huge, and the staff is friendly.

Was suggested by a friend of mine (both of us from New England) for breakfast. Service and food was great. My eggs benedict were perfect, wife's pancakes were good but average and my buddy's Hoboken Hash looked fantastic!!! Give it a try, you won't be disappointed

This is a very clean and cheerful restaurant. The food is always good. Some menu items offer free coffee, which helps us seniors. The waitresses are always pleasant. Good location with plenty of parking.

Had the omelet special, very good. Hubby had standard eggs over. All the food was good but service was very slow for how few people were there. Also what's up with the toast, looked like 4 end slices cut in half. Will go back and recommend.

Sorry about your toast. We don't buy standard loaf breads but instead buy from a bakery based in Sarasota and sometimes the loaves are not shaped the same from one end to another...The cooks should have changed loaves. Again we are sorry. More

We've been here for breakfast many times. Most recently (and usually) we both had the 2 eggs, bacon, home fries and toast with coffee and left happy and full. Eggs were cooked just right, over-medium; bacon was good; potatoes were soft inside with some crispy on the outside, we opted for ours with onions, which they add on top and... More

We opened in 1984 and are PROUDLY celebrating 31 years at this location with the same ownership. We serve great COMFORT food in large portions and many of our menu choices are all inclusive. Our over-stuffed Omelets and breakfast Skillets are huge, and you may share without an extra charge (smaller sizes avail.). Delicous homemade Biscuits and Sausage Gravy. Great Pancakes from a guarded recipe. Best Grits anywhere. Triple Deckers, Philly Cheese Steaks and great French Fries too. Our Potato Salad and Cole Slaw, Meatloaf, Salisbury Steak and Meatballs...All made from scratch. We bread our own Fish for our Fish Fry and serve slow roasted Prime Rib AuJus Thurs.-Sat. We even have a fountain with real hand dipped Ice Cream, Shakes and Malts....And THE BROOLYN EGG CREAM. Pies, homemade Walnut Brownies and huge N.Y. Corn Muffins....Split open and grilled with butter Mmmmm. Our dinner menu includes soup or salad, a generous entree incl. Potato and veg. A beverage and dessert for under $10. We have a senior dinner portion that incl. A beverage for $6.99. Our burgers are fresh,never frozen, certified Angus beef! Our hot dogs are NATHANS FAMOUS. The menu is typical 'DINER" fare and is 5 pages. Whatever your in the mood for, we have it. We also would like to show you why we don't have to advertise. Although we are in a strip mall behind Carrabbas, we have an old railroad car look, complete with a long counter and stools, tables, booths and neon lighting. Come in and try the TRULY best kept secret in the area. Joe & Valerie
