just the place I'm always looking for for breakfast - quiet, good food and they keep the coffee coming. I had eggs, French toast and ham. They make their own bread for the French toast. I recommend it!

This restaurant is back off the road in a nondescript place, but the food is delicious. Breckfest is served all day. We opted for the chicken salad sandwich and fries, which was one of the daily lunch specials. It's a local place that the average visitor may not know about, but much better than fast-food and worth a shot!

Have eaten at this restaurant many times but on this occasion I was quite disappointed in several things. Our breakfast was tasteless. The omelets were dry. The bacon was burned and they only gave one slice of toast. The decor is getting dated and carpet worn...personally think the service has declined with new ownership.

Great little place to get some delicious home style cooked food. Staff was helpful and friendly. Kept coffee filled and lots of food for the price! Nothing fancy but definitely return trips in our future!

Another Diner experience in Richmond. Good food served economically. Friendly folks and a great atmosphere. Not a wide selection, but typical good diner food.

Everyone here is friendly- including some patrons. Services is good and the food very dependable, good and several items like soup they prepare on site. It is not exciting but always pretty good. Love the chicken noodle soup, rich broth and full of chicken & veggies. You can get breakfast all day and some good options like pork chops and... More

We were in town for a sports tournament and staying nearby at the Hampton Inn. The owners of the diner were very accommodating in opening the diner solely for us for our 55 players and families for Thanksgiving Dinner last year. We returned this past weekend and were treated very well and they were able to accommodate our group of... More

Client wanted to meet at this place. For sure, it is not a business lunch place. Service was quick and courteous. Food was good but seasoning on the grilled pork chops was lacking. Other person ordered fried pork chops. Am sure they tasted better but not healthy. Oh well, healthy and diner don't go hand in hand.

Found local gem while traveling. Warm with a real family owned feel. The service was good and friendly. The food was spot on diner food. Plentiful and well prepared. My Sailor sandwich was served on buttered toast that was perfect. My wife had breakfast for lunch and was extremely satisfied with the amount and quality of her eggs and sausage... More

I go by here often and thought I would finally give them a try for breakfast. They were very busy and really didn't have the staff to handle it. However, the service was still good and the food came out in a reasonable amount of time. I had the Western omelette with homefries and toast. The toast was thickly sliced... More
