Looking for a breakfast place on the way back from Hershey and Letterman's popped up on my phone. We drove about 20 minutes out of our way because the reviews were so good. What a find. Very friendly staff and huge portions. The place itself is tiny. Counter seating and maybe 5 tables for two. Lots of specialty omelettes, the... More

The absolute largest and best breakfast you will ever have. Anything you may crave for breakfast, Doug got it. Just don't tell him you don't like the Philadelphia Eagles (HaHa).

This is truly a throwback diner ....it has terrific food, a diverse crowd & great service. Cash only - come hungry & early - very limited seating but definitely worth the wait!

Legendary. This little place gets packed during weekends, so get here EARLY. Omelettes are the biggest and best I've had in my life. 100% worth the wake up time. There's only one cook, and everything is made to order and fresh right in front of you. Can't recommend enough.

This place has decent food, a very average selection, and decent service. It always seems to be very crowded when it is open, which is strange because it is REALLY hard to tell when it will be open. The listed hours don't seem to have any relation to the actual hours when it is open ( and those times are... More

We ate there on a Sunday morning and even though the place is tiny, we waited 45 minutes for our eggs. The reason for this is the huge take out business. The food is freshly prepared on one small griddle. The portions are incredibly large so look to splitting or take some home if you like leftovers. Neat atmosphere (old... More
