Great breakfast place. Centrally located in Gardner and quite affordable. The Hen out front is quaint and great way to find this place. All American diner in the heart of New England.

Parking is not great and but food is worth it. On the grill with busy cooks making you a great breakfast. Reasonable prices and Local hangout atmosphere. Locals know where to go for good food. And this is it!!! Love the hen and rooster decor!
