Superb breakfast. I usually get ham & eggs, hash browns with onion, but haven't had anything that wasn't excellent. Attentive service. "Retro" atmosphere. Great local family operated business.

Awesome food! Super friendly, family, staff. Chicken fried steak and gravy from Gravy's Diner is a meal everyone should put on their bucket list.
