Loved our classic American breakfast (eggs over easy, grilled ham, grilled English muffin), the coffee refills, the airy interior, the paper placemats with local ads, the regular customers at the counter, the servers. Authentic, not retro. Highly contextual, fits the town of Greenfield. Have breakfast...More

My husband and I came in for breakfast over the weekend. The place was very busy. All the booths were full so we sat at the counter opposite of the grill. Despite being very busy the staff was quite attentive. The coffee here is very...More

If you are thinking of stopping in for a bite to eat, DON'T! Keep driving. Shady Glen puts the "grease" in "greasy spoon" and not in a good way. My wife and I stopped in for breakfast. Part of our order was bacon, cooked crispy....More

The last time we were there, the meal was cold. It was not that busy, so would expect the meal to be hot

First return visit, after many years; decor has preserved 1950's nostalgia and even spruced it up. 21st cen. food tastes won't be catered to -- no gluten or local-from-scratch dishes --but good prep of familiar things. On this visit I felt our server's mind was...More
