I don't agree with the person who said it's a greasy spoon. Just a nice down-to-earth, well-kept family diner with very friendly service. Don't expect gourmet or anything fancy. Simple but tasty, and a simple price. Large selection and willing to customize your order. We especially like their ham and take some home if we don't eat it with our meal. Bean soup is excellent when they have it. This time I had Denver omelet and asked to have tomatoes added, came with 2 side choices. See pictures. Hubby and son had hot open face sandwiches that filled up the large plate. It is choice of meat over mashed potatoes and bread, with gravy (my son gets his with fries instead of potatoes) comes with soup or salad. Got so stuffed we had to take some home, along with a plate of ham. Wish they didn't close at 3pm. Never had to wait for a seat, but does get busiest Sunday 12-1

Don't set your expectations too high. It's a decent breakfast at a reasonable price. The chili is, oddly enough, probably the worst I have ever had, though I know people who love it.

One of my favorites in Valpo. Great food, friendly service and nice place to eat and relax. I had the cinnamon swirl French toast and my wife had the strawberry pancakes. Food came out quickly and was terrific. Love going here.
