    Omg, the peanut butter milk shake. 👍🏻Also, if you're there around 3:30am, always order the eggs Benedict! 🤣

    Excellent poached eggs with spinach with delicious hollandaise sauce for a vegetarian breakfast option. Go tater tots instead of fries. Yum and good if dining alone.

    Great diner experience. Friendly staff, good food, large portions. We enjoyed the chilli cheese burger and the grilled salmon so much that we went for brunch the next day!

    Good food. Service bizarre tho - waitress would come over for about 2 secs, ask if you're ok and then walk off before you answer as you yell an order at her. Then brings the wrong thing over? Weird.

    A hallway of classic diner food. If you're not sure, just go for the Royale with pancakes. Don't get your eggs scrambled, unless you like them artificial

    Brunch was pretty bad. Beer bratwurst exploded in my face and the skin was inedible. My fiancée's florentine benedict was overly drenched in butter.
