Foursquare Tips

  • Service feels like a hotel, but portions are similar (i.e., small). When I just missed breakfast (which ends at 2pm) they made an exception for me. Free Wi-Fi is nice, too. Wifi password is 6263187006
  • Come here for breakfast! Everything is super yummy!
  • The waiters are great! The food is always hot and delicious.
  • Paleo diet breakfast tip: veggie omlet no cheese, sauteed spinach instead of hashbrowns, and a side of bacon. Yum!!!
  • The Belgian waffle is light and good.
  • Free parking validation here for 90 min in adjacent garage.
  • Croque Madame
  • Make sure you check for bar seating if there's a long wait. Full menu!
  • Fresh ground beef, music, art.
  • Lovely old school diner. Perfect for any meal, especially breakfast!
  • Chicken fried steak is amazing!
  • Veggie Omelet add sausage!!! Yum!
  • The Spinach and cheese omelette is something else. I don't eat bacon or ham, so I go with veggies.
  • Wonderful breakfast. Best poached eggs! Prime bacon.
  • Good burgers, it's changed since I was a child-a bit more upscale. Still, nice play to eat.
  • Opened 1930. American food served at tiny cafe decorated with elaborate chandeliers, classic art work & crown molding.
  • Love it. Cozy warm and comfortable. The food is excellent. Go now!!
  • Food was good, and the ambiance is something unique to see.
  • Great place but waiter forgot our salad and soup and brought out our main pLates first other than that place is great!
