Old fashioned ambiance and great food. Big menu like a New Jersey Diner. Great staff. My wife asked for sauteed spinach (off menu). It was cooked perfectly and delivered with a smile.

Retro feel with space and waitresses. Yummy food with homemade ingredients. Loved the biscuits and gravy and eggs Benedict. Staff friendly and accommodating to little ones. Go early to avoid lines. A real treat for breakfast! Also serves lunch and dinner!
