We do eat here often but I wish they would clean it up and offer some healthy foods. It could be a gold mine. We used to eat here every Saturday morning but after it changed hands, it's not as good. Too bad there isn't any reminder of the wonderful family that owned it originally or any of the history... More

This place is like a 50's soda fountain shop. You will feel like you stepped back in time with the bar stools and tables. There is a wide variety of food and fountain delights. While waiting for our food it was nice to see the antiques in the other half of the diner. Great place to take the grand kids.

Me and my wife and kids came in for breakfast. We enjoyed our food. Seems like i did more than my wife. The food was average. It wasn't the best but it also wasn't bad. Family friendly place and ambient was calm. Service wise, I'd give it an average also. You have to sit yourslefs in the desired table, then... More

My niece brought us here for breakfast. We arrived and chose a booth and the waiter brought us menus and took our drink orders. He returned with our drinks and we ordered and the food arrived quickly. It was hot and the eggs, bacon and pancakes were good. The place is like a diner but it is large and spacious... More

I got nostalgic for the Rexall drug store days when I walked in, but the food was only average. Still, it is a cute place and good for a Saturday morning breakfast throwback.

Perfect for a slightly hung over, hole in the wall, diner, sort of brunch - the food is hearty and good - counter service is excellent, and the antique shop next door is fun for browsing.

The food took forever to get to the table. We were sitting there for a total of 3 hours. The food didn't arrive until 2 hours 15 minutes into the visit. Our server, an older Hispanic man, never refilled our drinks. By far the worst "diner" experience I've ever had. The place is filthy too. That should not be confused... More

My entire family enjoyed our greasy breakfast here while visiting my son in the Heights. The eggs were prepared in an expert fashion and the grits hit the spot. I'm not sure if my cardiologist would approve this meal, but we all would return to this cozy neighborhood spot.

Good greasy breakfast in the Heights. We've been here several times over the past decade and have a good breakfast each time. Don't come here if you want to diet. Eggs, Omelets and Grits are always good here. This place is usually packed on the weekends so be prepared to wait. It's worth it. Right next door is a charming... More

Always a busy place on the weekends, but worth the short wait. Typical diner breakfasts with a southwestern flair. Don't miss the fresh squeezed orange juice. Good place to take kids.
