We ate here twice during our stay in Grand Forks! The food was typical north american breakfast and brunch and were delicious! The staff are friendly enough but they are always busy so they didn't chat with us too much. They were a little slow...More

A great place to have a simple, hearty breakfast at a decent price. This place is quaint and cute. The waitress wore a poodle skirt! The food was good, if a bit greasy. The service was pretty quick. The space is very large and open.

The restaurant was cute inside and the waitress nice. The food preparation was very slow. It took more than 35 minutes for sausage and eggs and once it arrived it was a bit disappointing. The potatoes were hard and the eggs underdone.

This diner is complete with the stools at the counter, booths, waitresses in the 50's dress and good music for background. The eggs benny were delicious and the coffee was good as well as plentiful. And we lingered over coffee which was no big deal.
