We ate here on two different occasions during our stay in Williamsburg, once for breakfast and once for lunch. Both meals were delicious with generous portions. The staff was kind and helped us find some great things to do in Williamsburg!

Small town hole in the wall type of place that serves up some pretty good food at reasonable prices. We went there on the recommendation of a local. Good service with daily specials.

Clean & friendly diner to visit. Good food, huge pancakes although the hash browns were average as they were cooked with other food on the grill. Definitely worth the stop while visiting Williamsburg. Just a short 10 minute drive from Great Wolf Lodge.

They do have gluten free pancakes on the menu. I'm not so sensitive that I worry about cross contamination so I didn't ask how careful they are.
