Service is quick and the servers were friendly. It was’t packed for the late lunch hour, maybe that is why. The lunch special - soup and sandwich was bland and the chicken cutlet was a bit chewy.

The place wasn't busy but it took over 5 minutes to get menus and water. Food feel like it's pre made and they just flash it in the microwave.More

Of the diners around Fairfield, this is the best one. Can't go wrong with pancakes or an omelet. If it's busy, sometimes you might feel forgotten, but that kinda adds to the diner vibe. Check it out.

This classic Greek-style diner recently received a major sprucing up to its previously tired 50s decor. The food is unchanged with classics such as moussaka, spanakopita and souvlaki along with Italian dishes, burgers, and of course omelettes and pancakes. Your basic casual family or off-the-road...More
