A nice little diner. They gave generous portions and our breakfasts were all tasty - especially the Huevos special. Even the coffee was good.

Great American breakfast in a proper American Diner. Extensive menu choice for breakfast and good friendly service with regular coffee refills. Was very busy and portions generous. The only complaint was that the smoked salmon with the scrambled eggs was super salty.
