Small lovely Diner! The menu on the website does not due the diner justice....there are so many wonderful choices/specials on the chalk boards in restaurant. Our visit was during off season so we were lucky to have no wait but I can imagine there is always a line during the busy season. If you are looking for good cooking and... More

It's a small and very homey spot, open for breakfast and lunch, plenty of good, very flavorful food for a very reasonable price! Clean and entertaining decor ... even the restroom!! Stop... More

Family owned & operated. The food is good & cheap. You get a lot for your money. Free refills on coffee. Nice atmosphere. If you don't enjoy friendly service then stay away.

Small family run business that is efficient, but pleasant at the same time. Many locals are eating in there especially at the bar so that tells you something right away. The menu is quite varied and we have never been disappointed with our choice. It's all good and reasonable by today's standards. My husband even likes their coffee!

We stumbled across this diner Thanksgiving morning, knowing we wouldn't be having a meal until late in the day. Walked in and was surprised at how busy it was, being a holiday. Clearly a local favorite...for a good reason! Menu offered plentiful choices and pricing was excellent - my eggs benedict and home fries was $6! My husband and son... More

Eight of us stopped in here on a Monday morning for breakfast as the last meal of our long weekend. There are no big tables, so we sat in 2 tables of 4. Our waitress offered us coffee and tea and then gave us time to review the varied menu and lots of blackboard specials. The food was prepared quickly... More
