Great little diner in the airport. You can watch the small planes take off and land while enjoying your meal. They have real good breakfast at a reasonable price.

We went here for breakfast, as we were going to the Aviation Museum, anyway, although we didn't know about the diner before we went, but found signs. They certainly carry the aviation theme inside the restaurant; there were model planes hanging from the ceiling. Our...More
