Always good food and great service. Try the classic thick bacon - best around. Can get very busy on weekends. Worth the trip.

Although food is good here, I always feel like they want my table and we need to eat fast and leave. Do not think I will go three again.

The name says it all a slice of Americana. Great light filled diner. All dishes fresh with nice presentation. Super friendly staff. Good for business breakfasts.

A bit cramped and the back room was WAY hot when we first sat down for breakfast. Surprisingly, they were out of Nutella (how is this possible on a weekend when you KNOW you will probably need plenty!). Once the food came, though, we were...More
