Fast and friendly local diner. On this occasion we went for breakfast. The food is good and very reasonably priced.

I've had breakfast here twice in the past two weeks. The staff are attentive and friendly, the food good, it's served promptly, even when the place is quite busy. The place attracts a ton of regulars, most of whom sit at one end. Noisy at times, but it's quite endearing.

My wife is a "regular" visitor as she finds the pan fried haddock to always be excellent. The serving includes a large piece of fish, 2 scoops of potatoes, cole slaw, and mixed vegetables. She did not opt for the soup and dessert that was included. My toasted cheese and tomato sandwich was fine, but not up to the reported... More

No frills, clean, cozy place. Servers have obliviously worked here a long time + take great pride in the service. Can't wait to return. This... More

I went here for breakfast last weekend and I just wasn't that impressed. I get the old school diner vibe, I actually kind of liked it although after a while places do need a bit of a face lift. The food wasn't that great and didn't have much flavor. The eggs benny that I had was ok, my boyfriends breakfast... More
