Food just average for breakfast . Prices very high for what you get. Service a bit slow--hard to get a refill on coffee or water.

Years ago this was the go-to diner, without a doubt. Recently returned. Omelettes here are priced higher than Original Pancake House (where the omelettes are EXCELLENT). Great disappointment.
