Family run for 60 years and it shows, service is excellent, the food is incredible and their house made hot mustard is to die for.

It's true. The standard 10-12 dollar omelettes were 7 egg. The peameal bacon was the thickest and tenderest I have ever had. In fact all the meals had a special flare... extra portions and high quality. The bacon was a fine maple smoked bacon. The sausage large farmers sausage. The pancake was huge. A fine homemade hot mustard was served at the table with the peameal.

They also have special fare for the adventurous. For example one breakfast item on the menu was a 12 inch beef dog, wrapped in a 10 egg omelet, smothered in cheese and on a sub sandwich bun...whaaaat? no way...yes its true. Good thing there were local ambulance workers having a breakfast there. Hey if the local cops and ambulance eat there, it must be good..

And, just as important, great value.

The décor was authentic...tons of pics, red vinyl, very downtown diner but with out in the country hospitality and service.

I will be sure to go again.

I have had peameal bacon before and was not impressed, but the Rainbow's Eggs Benedict include delicious peameal, really tender and not at all salty. All members of the family enjoyed the usual breakfasts including pancakes, french toast, eggs, bacon, sausages, and all got good reviews. Don't be deterred that this is not a modern looking place, its' charm is its' authenticity. Note that it is cash only but there's an ATM on site.
