A great diner with lots of choices for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Great soups, sandwiches, and entrees. Clean and very kid friendly. Everything is delicious- save room for dessert! Great cheesecake and assorted pies. There are weekly specials and wine pairings too!

The menu is confusing....all over the place. The pastrami nightmare was a nightmare....one piece of unappetizing pastrami, raw onion and tomatoes (?). And yellow mustard....really? Get some Gulden's please. Sandwiches were small, fries were big. And it took 10 minutes to find a wait staff...More
