    A gorgeous renovation has only added to the vintage luster of this 24-hour South Philly standby where the coffee cup clock, horseshoe booths, and kindly veteran servers are a unique part of the visit. Read more

    Everything is delicious here! For the best bang for your buck during breakfast get the breakfast combo, it's eggs sausage bacon and pancakes. Can't go wrong with that

    Get the #ShitonaShingle with an Fried egg over easy on top. Break the yolk and let it run over the #gravy. Oh, and a side of #scrapple with Maple syrup

    I always go for the breakfast combo if I'm sober, grilled cheese and French onion if I'm not. I also, love the banana cream pie!

    This place was such a staple of my youth. I'm only 27 but I remember when all of the waitresses knew you by name and sometimes doubled as your middle-school shrink. Man things have changed!

    We were there last night. Roast turkey was perfect for cold night with chicken rice soup.

    This place used to be good before the new owners came in. Smaller portions, more expensive. Got the turkey club & got sick. Homemade Mozz sticks used to be awesome but not anymore, very disappointed.

    The food's not great, but the service was decent. The atmosphere needs a lot of work, even for a diner.

    Go somewhere else. This place gets exponentially worse each time I come. Go make ramen noodles at home.
