A neighborhood place that's quick to get something, breakfast lunch or dinner. But you can never count on it to have high quality food. Breakfast is not that hard to watch how much grease you sling on a plate. Just plain sloppy and not take...More

Loved this place! I only wish I had discovered it sooner. Breakfast was hot, savory, and a great value. Overall, spent around $25 for three people and left full. Lots of variety to choose from. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Manager seemed engaged and...More

Since my earlier review, I can say I continue to enjoy going here regularly. Usually go for breakfast, and get their weekday breakfast specials, before 11 a.m., for less than five dollars, before beverage. Lunch and dinner are good as well. Clean, tidy, reasonably quiet...More

Just a great local spot with very good food. You will not notice if you don't go but if you are of the baby boomer set you'll immediately understand.
