Rainy night on the strip outside Kingston trying to find a place to eat that was not a chain. Saw this one and pulled in. Tiny looking but lots of seats inside. Big menu with typical greek diner options. But also nice salads and "mini" meals that are not very mini. Wonderful waitstaff. Good prices.

After early business in Lake Katrine we stopped at Michael's for breakfast. The special are appealing they include a juice fr a very reasonable price. The The eggs sausage, bacon and pancake are very good at no extra cost you can get blueberry pancakes. The server was nice and attentive. A nice place to break your early morning travel.

I will start by saying that I am not really a big fan of most diners - but my husband and I do enjoy going to this one! Most of the food is very good and there is a large variety of options, including some interesting and uncommon dishes available for dinner specials. Many of the Italian dishes that are... More
