    Think 60s diner. Such a classic place to go if you're in the area.

    It has an old diner feel, staff seemed a little grumpy like they didn't want to be there and one of them was having a mild argument with a male inside the diner. I wouldn't go here again. Food average

    Like something out of a movie, drunk party girls, colorful patrons, they make you sit on the stools of small parties. Burgers good, beer on tap.

    I ordered the supreme omelet and the waitress only got one ingredient right. No water until the end, she asked us to pay right when she set down the wrong food so she could leave.No ketchup or syrup.

    The chicken sandwich is basically just three dry grilled chicken fingers on a bun. The pancakes are good though. I wouldn't get anything by breakfast here again.

    It's probably great if you are drunk and need diner food. As a bus ride food, it wasn't the best idea.
