Restaurant
“One of our favorite breakfast places (rumored to have been voted best breakfast in Buffalo). A visit is like traveling back in time. This cash only restaurant, which says a lot right there, provides an authentic 1950’s diner experience. Complete with black and white tile floors, swivel stools for seating at the counter, and little booths (red seats of course), it’s like visiting a by-gone era. Tiny but packed with character and characters. Traditional breakfast, eggs, waffles and gigantic pancakes, with healthy options for those so inclined. Time-honored diner fare available for lunch as well. Open only for breakfast and lunch, with limited hours you better be good and they are! Sometimes there’s a line, they have their fans, but if your looking for great value it’s worth the wait. If you can get it, grab the table at the front of the diner. It provides a window view onto Hertel Ave. on one side, and the complete diner on the other. ”
