Restaurant felt dated but the service and food was good. Our waiter had a heavy accent so I thought I was ordering homemade mushroom soup and instead got matzo ball soup. It was good though....like a chicken noodle broth soup taste. Side cesar salad was also good. My husband had a delicious hanburger. Would eat here again.

As a tourist you have a certain image on how a diner should look like and be, this one matches all expectations. The food tastes lovely, the staff is very polite and of old school courtesty. The interiour is something out of the past and fits in perfecly with the image. I had a very delightful breakfast.

Stopped in for breakfast and to wait less than ten minutes on a Saturday morning which was fine! We ordered and the food came out very quickly and was made to everyone liking.

Stopped in for an earlier Sunday breakfast - got progressively busier as we were there. Service was quick - omelette and eggs were good as were the bagels. Great place to stop for a bite!
