This is a typical diner where breakfast is breakfast, coffee is coffee and the food is as good as it gets. Don't be intimidated by the somewhat old decor. It's clean!

My personal way to judge a diner is by their breakfast and milkshakes. They do great in both categories. I'll go back!

The cold brew is delicious. The wait is long for a coffee shop, but I liked the convenience of window service. They also have lots of yummy donuts. The hot coffee is only $1 and is super smooth.

Great breakfasts - all day long. Good lunches and dinners. It is usually pretty busy and has the feel of a 50's diner.

I stumbled upon Clayton's mid-morning in need of comfort food. Clayton's is just the right spot. This gem has a classic diner feel, right down to the mini jukeboxes in each booth and all along the communal counter. I ordered hash browns and a side...More

When you arrive they will put your name on a list...The coffee shop is very busy, but I'm sure they will be able to accommodate your party of 4 in a reasonable aount of time
