Yes, frozen. Not even heated up all the way. Way too much money for a glorified eggo waffle! Service was abrupt (sorry I was disrupting your conversation with your friends!) and had to ask for coffee several times. Seriously. In the morning.

Been eating here for ever when I lived near here. They recently put a new coat of paint. Best breakfast in the valley

The worst eggs benedict you will ever eat. The owner is rude and the food is poor. I would avoid this if I was you! Do you really want to eat "Spanky's special batter"?????

Stopped with friends for breakfast. WOW! Amazing service and even tho there was a brief wait for this tiny place, the turnover was quick. It would have been worth a longer wait! I love breakfast and this is good diner food.

Little old fashioned breakfast place. Not much action in Ben Lomond, so this place is pretty packed. They have traditional breakfast, food is decent...I would not say great or amazing, but reasonably priced and tasty. Would be nice if they would have few options for...More

We were here for breakfast and as long as you don't mind waiting, you will love it. Well worth the wait. The environment is very casual and all walks of life happen through this diner
