Passing this place, you may think its not worth the chance. Very old and outdated. However the turkey club was the best I have ever had. And that's my go to choice at diners. The staff could be more friendly and it need updating badly. But the food good and that's all that matters

Have been 3 times - twice for breakfast on the weekend, and once during the week. They only serve eggs benedict with homemade hollandaise sauce on the weekend, which was a disappointment because we went during the week. However, it is worth going on the weekend because their special menu is truly special. Suggested to the staff that they make their hollandaise during the week because they would have more patrons. We will see if that suggestion was moved forward.

My wife and I stopped for a quick bite before an event. We both got different salads, her the Greek and I the Nicoise. They were both served with bread and fast.. They were huge plates. Very enjoyable. Attentive server. Good all around.

Came in here for a late Sunday breakfast after 1PM. Place had an average crowd - would not consider it busy. Was seated right away but was surprised how long it took to be acknowledged by a server let alone having some ask if we'd like coffee or water. Staff was sitting around talking, catching up and finally a server approached the table to take the order. Food was good - typical of a diner fare. Won't be hurrying back anytime soon.

Stopped in before our 2 hour car ride home looking for a good Breakfast/Lunch.... (noon time) This diner did not disappoint. My heart was set on breakfast and I got the spinach/tomato omelette which comes with homefries and toast. All tasted wonderful as you would expect from a good diner. Also for my breakfast I ordered the short stack blueberry pancakes ( I was hungry!)......the 2 good sized cakes were full of blueberries. My son ordered the Chicken Parm grinder that came with french fries and said it was excellent. Service was prompt even though the diner was busy. Hostess was pleasant, warm and welcoming. I loved the feel of the place and paying at the cash register was no big deal and added to the charm. This diner is clean and had a great atmosphere!
