Located on Passaic Avenue, great place to cozy up for breakfast, brunch or lunch, prices are moderate and service is friendly. Building looks antique but well maintained. Parking in rear or on street.

I love to take my 91 year mother in law there for a delicious brunch. She loves the croissant French toast and the coffee is hot and delicious!

Been here often and it's always the same; nice selection and tasty, but always cold. I'm sure I'll go back. Nice ambiance, but Nutley Diner is better.

It's not easy to find great coffee, but they have it. It's not easy to make terrible pancakes, but here they know how! And Eggs Benedict served hard!

Really attentive and welcoming staff, good quality food, with an extensive menu. I’ve been told the coffee is amazing. Recommend the ‘hungry human’ for a serious American breakfast experience!
