Dirty, rude waitress that gave an attitude when I asked for a napkin to clean my dirty seat. Not one person bothered to greet us. Buyers beware this place is not good

What a fun little place to eat, had a great breakfast and it was all 50s style front and inside. Couldn't ask for a better meal and service, staff was friendly and smiling

We stayed at the motel next door and stopped here for breakfast. It's huge inside with lots of vintage diner-type stuff all around. We sat in a horseshoe-shaped counter seating about 9 people. We sat with one of the locals and started a fun conversation....More

The building was interesting and close to our hotel so we tried it out. The food was average. There was a nice selection on the menu. Bathroom needed attention. Staff was friendly.

I doubt it as this is a converted gas station. You could check Disney's website though to find out.
