Met a colleague for a breakfast meeting there and it was great. It's a treat to see planes take off and land while enjoying good food. I had corned beef hash w/my eggs and it was yummy!

Very cool diner! Built in 1950. We had good food. They offer a lot of different meat options for breakfast, so if you like meat..... they had sirloin, corned beef hash, biscuits and gravy, etc. Plus your standard egg dishes and French toast.
