    Great neighborhood spot; food diner typical but a great stop when walking dogs, they can sit outside (when the weather is good)!

    I do wish that creativity of the bartenders be harnessed by putting their fantastic creations on a menu. One can have something excellent one time, but never be able to get it again...

    a cute lil local spot for breakfast. tip: pancakes are HUGE. you can order the stack of 3 and split them between 2 people and be fully satisfied. we each got the egg special and split 3 pancakes.

    Get here early. 2 tops are easy to sit. The French toast is delectable but there are plenty of other goodies. The red ad white checkered table clothes give this place a Paula D. feel.

    The portions are as big as the personality of this breakfast-and-lunch institution that’s packed with tchotchkes and mismatched chairs. Read more

    Cutest breakfast place ever. Fresh squeezed orange juice is a must have. Love at first sip.

    Best neighborhood breakfast spot. Large portions of delicious food. Feels like you're having breakfast at grandma's house. Try every omelette. They're fantastic.

    Great neighborhood place. Always accomodating. Often serving free juice or coffee when there's a wait for tables. I almost always have Jackie as my waitress...treats you like personal friends. Nice.

    Total dive place for breakfast. Delicious. If you're debating breakfast meats, get the ham. Might be best in city.

    Pancakes are overly cakelike, but the f toast is delicious. At busy times the waitstaff is non existent and the owner is a tyrant, making the atmosphere unbearable. I suggest Tweet or Ann Sather.

    After being seated first four other parties were seated and got their food before us. Then I had to wait 20 minutes for just a cup of coffee. Horrible service.

    Enjoy waiting and getting randomly yelled at by the owner for no particular reason. Service will likely suck. Not cozy, not fun. Not worth it. Avoid. Read more
