Mama Nancy's is no longer the name. Now called Jesse's Diner. Jesse worked at Mama Nancy's and now has taken charge. Great diner. Jesse came around to the tables and welcomed the patrons. Wishing him all the best. Great breakfast.

Mama Nancys might just be a diner, but the foods fantastic. Went for a fish dinner one Friday night. Received a large fried piece of haddock with fries and coleslaw. Service was quick and food arrived hot. Fish was done to perfection.
