Awesome food!! Everything we ordered was the BEST!!! The grilled food wasn't greasy at all. The homemade pie was to die for.

Very quaint outside appearance. Inside is very small. Booths are very tight, but cozy. Busy diner. Many regulars were there. Service was very good and the food arrived quickly. The Greek Sauce is delicious! I would definitely return. A throwback in many ways.

It is relatively challenging for a vegetarian to eat there and don't think it would be much easier to do gluten free. Eggs and omelets are available. Regardless, the folks there are very hospitable and will be happy to work... More
