It looks like an old house turned into a restaurant from the outside. Very old-fashioned style place with waitresses that enjoy talking in a typical roadside diner. The food is fine that and the service was quick and the people are nice. This is not your typical big fancy diner but it'll be an enjoyable experience

I always pass this place on the way to work n finally got a chance to go. We needed somewhere quick to eat. Very small but the waitresses were nice. As soon as we sat down in the booth with no cushion, our waitress mention "what do want for a place that has been open for 60 years". Really... 60... More

Our waitress came over fairly quickly but with only one menu! I saw more across this small restaurant so that wasn't the issue..I asked my husband if he... More

Don't be fooled by the appearance the food is and always has been consistently good. Price is good and quantity as well. Anyone not happy here can't be happy anywhere.

Stopped for breakfast on the way south down route 9 on the way to the beach towns. Had a very good and reasonably priced breakfast of eggs, potatoes, rye toast, and coffee. Seemed to be a popular local place with a friendly staff.

This place has been open as long as I remember. I hadn't been here since the 80's and I was playing golf nearby one morning so I decided to come in for breakfast. The food was good although I had to send it back once. It's a small place, food is not expensive. Similar items at a big diner would... More

I was taken here by a client when visiting from the UK. Felt like a traditional American diner - great breakfast and service.

The service was excellent. Breakfast was hot and cooked perfectly. Refills on coffee and relaxed atmosphere. Definitely worth the visit.
