We stopped in here for a quick dinner while in the area. Older style diner with its own parking lot (nice to have free parking in Uptown) breakfast menu and sandwiches. Prices are decent 10 to12. They have a cheeseburger, fries and malt for 10! Malt was very good with the malted milk taste. Service was very good and food... More

Had a Groupon to use so decided to stop in for dinner. Really enjoyed the place. The service was efficient without being overwhelming, the décor was interesting (would be a great place to people watch during warm weather) and the food was well prepared, tasty and plentiful. My wife and I both ordered the cheeseburger special (cheeseburger, waffle fries and... More

I hadn't been here for awhile and nothing as changed. The booths are the same and the restaurant is getting a little ragged. The service and food is great, basic coffee shop food, breakfasts are great. Missed this place and the long term staff.

We got seated at the worst 2 person table in the place right by the busing station, so I had the sound of clanking dishes in my ear the whole time. Note to staff, if there are other tables available, only use that table as a last resort! My waffle fries were great , but my Chicken Salad Sandwich was... More

When you go here make sure you order the pineapple upside down pancakes. They're sooooo delicious! The waitresses were very nice & attentive with good conversation! This first impression will definitely be a lasting impression! I will return!

The title says it all, got to try the Caramel Apple Crisp Waffle, it is one of the best breakfast items I have had. The Highway Patrol was eating breakfast there and that is usually a sign of great food. We also had the Gyro Omelet and it was good and something uncommon. The only thing that kept this from...
