I love this place! The prices are similar to other diner type restaurants, but the portions are at least double the size. My favorite is the Gyro Omelette (see image). The staff is wonderful too. Always friendly and fast.

Great menu options and HUGE portions! I got breakfast with French toast, eggs, bacon and sausage and it was all very good. I specifically came for the portion size and the French toast which was on Texas toast! Always a great place to come if you're very hungry. Crowded so try to go at an off time, but worth it....

We go here on occasion for breakfast. It is a local gathering. Inside needs updating. Good breakfast - huge pancakes that are good. Nothing special here, but if you want a decent breakfast, it is fine.

Stopped here for Dinner last night. My Wife had the Turkey Melt Omelette, which was enormous. I had the BBQ Chicken Pilaff w/ Brocolli. The pros: the food was hot,and their portions are giant sized. The Cons:watching a Waitress off in a corner stuff her face, The Brocolli was past it's prime,and constant bickering between employees. Might give it another... More
