I went with a friend here and the inside was clean just dated. You sit yourself. The server came over and we got coffee to start and then placed our order of a veggie omelette, which to them a veggie omelette is where you only get to pick three veggies from a list and my friend ordered an egg sandwich...

We stopped in here for lunch while waiting for a ferry crossing. The menu is classic diner. The food was served hot with great flavor. Interaction with the staff and other patrons was enjoyable. For me, if the choice were between a chain restaurant or an awesome, locally owned sport - this place would win hands down.

We have been to the State Street Diner, (better known as "Monica's), countless times for lunch. It is tough to resist one of the daily specials. Good food at a reasonable price. Recently had the pot roast, which done in the classic manner. There is real turkey in the Club sandwiches. My wife usually orders "breakfast for lunch", a fried... More

We were in town for a few days and wanted to try a new place for breakfast. Well we were not disappointed. A nice small establishment with either counter or booth seating. The service was fast and the meal was plentiful and delicious. We will definitely be back. Thank you.

The place was crowded but we were able to get a table within minutes. The food was good; blueberry pancakes, homemade blueberry muffins, eggs and sausage. YUM

Residing in a building built in the 1868 this is a cafe' in the grand style of yesteryear: a counter with stool and booths along the opposite walls. It would be easy to picture it inside an old Woolworth's, but without the soda fountain and with much better food. I was here for breakfast and choose a bacon omelet. This... More
