This little place has s amazing. How is it that we've lived in Sandusky for this long and no one has recommended this place? The breakfast is fantastic. If you like amazing, hot, delicious food, I highly recommend this little joint on the west side of Sandusky. If I could give it 6 stars, I would.

Still the best place for breakfast in town. The menus are updated and the place has painted and updated the interior. The change is subtle but if you have been there before it's very noticeable. They still have the specials board up front and their potato omelet with a side of bacon is still only $5.99. If you leave here... More

Let's just say we tried it and won't go back. I give anyone credit for starting and running their own business, but this one needs some help with cleanliness, staff and food.

My wife and I love this little hole in the wall. We grab breakfast there whenever we are in Sandusky in the morning. Everything is always great and fresh and the service is friendly. We love the potato omelet is wonderful but it's only available on special, it's not on the menu. Luckily it seems to always be the mornin... More

We needed a place to go for a lunch with a group of people. We went into this place. The décor is older and it is a small place. The food was excellent. We had a group of about 14 people. We sat at 2 tables and the server was awesome. We loved the food. It was delicious. I had... More

We ate here based on TA reviews and were not disappointed. Good coffee with lots of refills, great omelettes (we had Greek omelet and the special: feta, tomato and spinach). Home fries were excellent. This is a great hometown diner!

When I think of a diner for breakfast, this is the incarnation of the perfect spot. It's small, old, smells like coffee, and waitress knows everybody's name. the sign says, "low prices, delicious food, an friendly service, and that's just what we got. We got two of the special meals, one of them called "the bomb" which is a biscuits... More

We ate here for the first time today and were pleased by the cleanliness and the large amount of seating for what appears to be a little building. Our waitress was kind, efficient and fun to visit with. My wife and I had the Blueberry Pancakes which were both good and filling. The sausage and eggs with the pancakes were... More

It's great to come back to my hometown and still be able to dine at a familiar place that isn't a chain. Food was great! The waitresses do it all, seat, serve, ring up, and bus their own tables. Very small, I counted 14 table tops ranging from 2 seats to 6 seats. If you don't care about decor and... More

If you're on vacation and don't want to eat at a chain restaurant that you can eat at anytime in your own neighborhood, this is a great alternative. It's nothing fancy, just a small local diner. But that's the charm about it. We went for breakfast our first morning in town and the place was packed. After only a few... More
