Great place to eat no matter what time of day! We were there for lunch after Christmas shopping. This was there busy time but worth it. I had the 2 coney special and my had a turkey club. Very filling. Very good local eatery. Good food, prices, and service. Try the pie!

Definitely not a high-roller place. This is a tiny little cafe tucked into the corner of a tiny plaza. They open early and close early. Don't go there at the tail end of the day if you are looking for utter cleanliness. They do serve the basics such as coneys, pitas and burgers. And of course breakfast food.

We have eaten there several times now, and are impressed w/the menu selection. Breakfast all day, mostly American, some other selections as well.

I've been coming here since I was a little kid and am a repeat customer at 32 years of age. I have never had a bad meal or service. Everyone knows everyone in this cafe and if your not from around town or new to town the staff and patrons will take the time to get to know you!

We were looking for a new place to have a brunch and this location came up with good reviews. I'm sorry to say this place is very average. Good basic, facilities old and borderline on my expectations on cleanliness and service folks who were good. There are so many better places to go in this area I would pass and... More

3 of us stopped for breakfast during a weekday at 8:30 am. We got the last available booth. The counter seating was almost full as well. By 9 o'clock, there was plenty of seating. The food was good, the service great, and the prices were reasonable. Coffee was only $1.15 and was good. A previous review stated the restaurant closes... More

This is a tiny, hash-slinging, breakfast-type restaurant that delivers great food and friendly service. It is consistently good and there are no complaints whatsoever other than having to wait for a table sometimes because it gets crowded (it's tiny and everyone wants to eat there!)

You don't go here for the "great food," but it's good enough for a breakfast or a greasy burger and fries. They place is tiny and their hours are limited, as they close at around 6 p.m. every day, but it is typically full of patrons. I never had their salads, but they did look good being delivered to tables.... More
