Foursquare Tips

  • Grilled sticky buns!
  • I need to get some of what the waitresses are smoking.
  • Did we say grilled sticky buns? Great diner food, but the stickies alone are worth a stop Anytime of day or night.
  • A spot for a late night study break since it is open 24 hours. The grilled stickies la mode or the Mac n cheese are great at any time of day.
  • Grilled Sticky Buns! :)
  • The later in the evening it is, the better the food will be. Stick to breakfast foods if you want to branch away from the famous Mac and Cheese.
  • SLOW! Not even open 24/7. It's 11:50 on a Sunday and they "aren't serving lunch food" not near as much of a state college staple as it used to be. And my waiter just told me they are out of ham
  • Pound of fries with cheese
  • Try the Grilled Stickies - What's not to love about these?
  • Absolutely horrible service. Dirty glasses, burnt food, only half the order came out.
  • My goodness, DO NOT eat the brownie sundae! It tastes like baby poop!
  • Service is slow so be sure to have time when you come in. The french toast is very tasty.
  • Stay away Sunday mornings. Kids party and call off and the staff that's there just gives up. There's no AC and sweat is dripping off my body while I wait in line. Ugh
  • Free Wi-Fi here works great but there's not many outlets. The friendly staff will let you charge up if you sit by the bar and use the wifi, though. Ask Moses, the manager, about his singing career! :)
  • Come for the mac, leave because of the service.
  • Grilled sticky buns with icecream are a must have for those visiting Happy Valley.
  • The place can be empty, yet service will be slow. Good food, good price--Grilled Stickies, Mac&Cheese--but don't go if you're in a hurry to eat.
  • Stay the eff away from the brownies a la mode. The brownie tastes like a dirty diaper.
  • Do NOT have the brownie sundae. You have been warned.
  • Go to the diner anytime after 10 p.m. They're open 24 hrs. Skip the anytime breakfast and induldge in a grilled sticky a la mode. PSU tradition!
