I recommend either the berry pie and the berry smoothie from Clayton’s! Sometimes can be crowded, but it’s a great environment. You can pick a song from the jukebox to fit the old diner feel.

I was a little disappointed this time. Our breakfast was a little dry, just not as good as I remember it. I will go back, I think it might have been an off day.

1950s style diner with extensive menu and attentive friendly staff. Short stack of pancakes was amazing as was the French toast and thick shake. Great experience and not surprising there are always lines for breakfast. Highly recommended for a great diner experience

If it were the 1950s this would be your normal modern day Denny’s of that era. It’s a classic diner complete with jukeboxes at each booth. The breakfast menu is extensive and everything I had was good. The service is especially friendly and accommodating.

Breakfast for three here on a Thursday morning. 50's diner atmosphere with both counter and booth seating. Booths a bit small. Service was friendly and attentive. Extensive menu. Eggs and waffles were delicious. Will return, perhaps for lunch.

I like going to the outside window for organic cafe moto iced coffee. My friend loves their donuts and my mom loves their soft serve ice cream cones.
