If you are a fan of Marilyn Monroe, this place is a must-see. There are dozens of MM collectors’ plates and other memorabilia on display. The staff is super friendly, service is prompt and efficient, and the typical diner fare is well prepared.

Been here many times for breakfast. Inside restaurant is a fifties diner style, outside is a small patio that you can bring your pets to. There are many choices and are large enough to satisfy most everyone. Coffee is hot and plenty.

Your memory of a diner like experience with friendly staff and easy going customers comes to life here. Fast decent service. Good food not outstanding. Always fresh and priced well. A great place for breakfast or lunch.
