Looking for a place to sit down for a casual lunch and this was close by. Great option for a diner meal. Some of our group had breakfast and others lunch. Everyone satisfied. The waitress was very nice.

Every time I visit Charlottesville I always plan on eating a few meals at the diner right next door to my hotel. The food is consistently amazing, service friendly and I always walk away satisfied with my choice to dine.
