The staff at the motel I stayed at the night before had recommended this quaint little diner. I was greeted warmly when I entered and was waited on immediately. I sat in a booth near some local men who apparently eat here regularly. In addition to a good breakfast at a very reasonable price, it was an enjoyable start to... More

We don't come here very regularly but when we do it's always delicious. It's an old fashioned eat at the counter type place but also has booths. Their food and service is great. Waffles are delicious and so is everything else.

We make our weekly visits every weekend. We walk in the both the waitresses know our order before we ever get sat down. Super friendly staff and fantastic food. Best place in town!

I've only been here for breakfast. Not the cleanest place....service is decent when you get it. I've sat there for a long time before being offered anything to drink before. Very small restaurant. Similar to a Waffle House type setting.

This is probably the finest spot in Mt. Vernon for Breakfast. Service is great and the food is excellent. The place is rather small so you may have to wait for a table or to sit at the counter.

The food was good, the service was fast and the waitress was friendly. However, this place needs work inside. There was obvious water damage from a leaky roof and the wall paper was coming off the walls.

Great place for a hot, cheap breakfast. Never tried lunch there but it is served until 2 p.m.(closes at 2p.m.) Great waitresses that are very attentive and friendly.

I have to say that this place exceeded my expectations. The Spanish omelet with homemade salsa was very good. They could improve by having real maple syrup and also by making the seating a bit more comfortable. That said, I enjoyed the meals there.

My brother had the waffles and was well pleased. I am an omelet guy. The Denver omelet was exactly how I like it. My sister-in-law had the biscuits and gravy. I sampled the gravy and was pleased that unlike many , it was not too salty.
