We had omelettes, pancake and waffles. It was all tasty and better than expected. We loved the restaurant atmosphere and the service. We had to wait in line for ten minutes to get a table, glad we waited

Ordered the 1950 platter (eggs, bacon, and home fries/hash browns) to go and it was really good. It was ready in 10 minutes and the staff was friendly. Definitely recommend this spot if in the area!

Great place for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The burgers are incredible and the shakes are great. Really enjoyed the crab cakes and the philly cheese steak omelet. This is the first place I go when I'm in Philadelphia.
