Lovely American breakfast menu - tells it as it is with dishes called things like Emergency Room. Waitress was excellent - kept filling our coffee cups and ensuring that we had everything we needed. Very busy so you may have to wait for a table.

Great little diner if you want a slice of old school America. Big menu with lots of items. Coffee is just regular but still good. Service was warm and very friendly.

Great diner with good sized portions, good value for money and the coffee kept flowing.... ideal when it was -5 outside! I can recommend the emergency room (big old breakfast with large buttermilk pancakes) certainly needed it for the walk around sight seeing!

Great old time atmosphere. Coffee was traditional diner coffee- nothing to write home about. My belgian waffle was better than average, butter served was super but maple syrup not up to par. Waffle a tad soggy. The corned beef hash and eggs was excellent though....More

FOOD was great-wait staff was also great. We had window seat so we did some people watching. We split Mike’s Famous Pilgrim (turkey-dressing and cranberry sauce). It was to die for-great waitress. We WILL return.🤗😄

There seems to be a lot of on-street parking in the neighborhood. We did not have a problem on a Saturday.
