We ate here for five days in a row and tried many different menu items. Everything was good. No complaints. Very friendly owner and staff. Highly recommend if your in Rochester. So convenient if you or a family member is staying at St Mary's Hospital.

One step in and we could tell we were in a wonderful little diner. Good service, wide range of hours (awesome when you have someone in the hospital and have no set schedule). All the food was amazing. Wonderful homemade milk shakes.

I was so grose to see the lady up front touching the computer mouse when paying for the order at the front desk, and packing my food. I was there only once because of dirt.

Crepes were pretty good. Service was super fast and friendly. The restaurant seating area was tired. Tons of potential but I needed something more uplifting after leaving Mayo for a break. This place is right across the street from St. Mary’s.
