Family visit in here on a recent day. Like always, Friendly service, hot food, and wonderful staff. Must try the Cozy mess. Pancakes are huge! Hot fresh coffee. Recently changed their menu a little bit. Prices have increase, but still the best place in Perry! Love Love Love this place!

If you're ever in the Perry area, you need to try this place! It's not fancy on the outside, so I may never have given it a second look if my husdand's mother, who lives in the area, hadn't recommended it. The service is friendly, the portions are generous, and the food is excellent. I will definitely be stopping again if I make it back to Perry.

Old fashioned diner, no frills. Great hot food. Friendly staff. Been there 10-12 times in the past 8 months. Never had a bad meal. Ate there last night. Had a pizza burger and fried mushrooms. Son had the biggest pancake i've ever seen. Both people working were so fun and friendly. This truly is the best place in Perry, IA. If you haven't checked it out, go there. Like i said, i've had a little bit of everything on the menu and have never once been disappointed!

If you are looking for a simple diner meal this is the place to go. Great breakfasts and large servings. A little heavy on the grease for me but a treat if you're looking for traditional diner fare. And if you order the pancakes take warning - they overlap the sides of a dinner plate by at least an inch all the way around. Huge!!
