The menu is classic diner fare, quite extensive, and our meals were well-prepared and delivered promptly. Many great pies available for desert, so leave room!

We stopped in for breakfast. They were really busy but the service was top notch. They got us seated and our drinks quickly and our food came out quickly. The waitress was very attentive. The food itself was top notch with large portions.
