Typical diner fare. Friendly staff. Don’t let the crowded restaurant scare you away. Lots of tables booths and counter space. Careful when ordering and consult with wait staff to see if you are ordering too much!

Must be the in place for breakfast/brunch because the place was crowded. Excellent menu. I had the bacon and egg sandwich. My wife had the City eggs Benedict. Unfortunately her eggs were over cooked, but they immediately corrected that.

I was staying at a nearby hotel and this was the perfect place for a meal without having to drive far. The dinners are very good and the breakfasts are super.

Love love live this place! So much fun to be surprised with our short stack! Delicious and enough pancakes to take back for many hungry ballplayers at the hotel.
