I was a little skeptical when entering because I thought a diner might not be as good as other places. However, this restaurant made amazing food. I highly recommend the chicken burger. Absolutely delicious. I devoured it. Everyone in our large party was pleased and...More

My Carne Frittata was very good - it had plenty of meat and, with home fries and toast, it was actually too big. My wife had a waffle, which was so ordinary that it probably came from a box. If you like turkey bacon, DO...More

We liked this place so much we had breakfast and then went back for lunch. The highlight was probably the waffles and the Nutella pancakes. For lunch the mac and cheese were awesome and the grilled cheese and ham sandwich #loved it xxx

We were pleasantly surprised by this place. We bought the package at the next door Hotel Beacon that included breakfast here so did not have very high expectations. However, they proved us wrong every time. We had breakfast there daily and had lunch there once...More

No booking necessary. It was certainly quieter on a week day. I would suggest later on a weekend, sort of brunch time could be a bit more difficult.
