Very pleased with the staff, who were courteous and attentive to us! The food was terrific and the price point very reasonable. Great Mimosas to boot! We sat outside and the setting was inviting and comfortable. We’ll be back!

A reasonably priced diner. Sandwiches, breakfast, and design your own mac n cheese. The food was hot and cooked well. The service was friendly. Not fancy, but good comfort food.

We had a quick lunch while downtown, the food was good and the service was ok. We ate inside, but they do have a nice patio area outside.

It is definitely no reservations, they put your name on the list, they will also call your phone if you give them the number. They have inside seating and outside seating and it moves pretty fast.
