Just love everything about this place from the food to the atmosphere! Love that the tables and chairs don't match or the glasses and coffee mugs! Not had a bad meal yet and the staff is very friendly!

Love this place. Great menu, food, and coffee. I'd give it more than 5 stars if I could. Ranch potatoes are delicious and the gravy is some of the best I've ever had at a diner. A must for breakfast in Carbondale.
