Just happened on Peggy's driving North on 5 toward Oregon. Looking for an easy on/off breakfast. This is it. Cute decor. A one person operation: cook, waitress and bus person all in one. This was a memorable breakfast that was generous in portion size. The...More

This diner is nestled into the evergreen Shasta forest, seconds from you I5 exit and sits in a redesigned railroad car/wagon. An absolute find! Great food, great ambience, great view. Really loved this place, there was something extra special and quirky about it.

To an early riser, open 24 hours is great news. Coffee was fair, senior breakfast was okay. Service at 530am was sleepy. Bright and shiny diner. Nice to have 24 hour diner in Dunsmuir.

Good for what it is: an old-style diner at a hotel in a small town, food exactly like Denny's but with a bit more atmosphere. Of all the places to eat in Dunsmuir, CA, this is one of them.

Decided to give this Diner a chance, The Cook/slash waiter was quite strange and made some very snarky comments. The food(breakfast) was Ok but the pancakes tasted like the omelet. I don't beleive i would eat there again.

Very nice staff. We ate outside on the adjoining patio with our dog. It was a welcome change from the chain hotels' breakfast bar.
