This place was recommend by a local. The food is decent. The milkshakes are quite good. The Philly cheesesteak wontons are a must try!

Service and ambiance excellent- every staff person was truly outstanding. Prices are very good. Portions very nice size. Great location right off Rittenhouse Square. Only issue was that the food taste while okay, was just that- I wish it were better.

The food was great. It was an upscale diner/bar & grill. The prices were extremely reasonable for the city. I would go back again.

Nice place to stop for brunch. A varied menu with ample choices and always good service. I like their egg dishes and they have a good coffee to go with it.

Great pancakes, good scramble of eggs and smoked salmon, excellent coffee. It's a pleasant, airy place to start the day with a friendly staff and amiable clientele.
