Quick place to grab grub. We stayed at St Joseph hospital. Diner is within 2 miles of the hospital. They have been around for awhile so the food must be pretty good. We had country omelets that were very good as well as the fresh fried potatoes. Biscuits and gravy were just ok though. Prices are decent also. I would... More

Cinnamon toast was the best. Food was good, and the service fast and friendly. Looked like it's a favorite of the locals.

These two brothers make you feel at home with the food they cook and the conversations they will have with you. During our stay they open up early to accommodate our starting time of 7 am. Food is just like home cooking!

Great service, good food, very laid back and friendly atmosphere. They do a great job of making over medium eggs. The food is plentiful, so go on an empty stomach.

Traveling from Saginaw, Mi. to Jacksonville, Fl. Looking for a place to have breakfast on the road, stumbled on the place by accident. It is obviously a favorite local restaurant from the number of "regulars". The portion size is overwhelming and food is well prepared.
