Elderly lady setting a table across from us to make sure she didn?t get charged for ? the glass of milk I never got and my bacon... ? . When it came time to pay I asked for a check was told ? we don?t give checks you pay up there ?. Ok now I?m at register andI ask for a receipt was told ? I can right you something out or email you one but it won?t be itemized? so I asked to see ticketwaitress turned was told ?no?. By now I?m bein treated like I did something wrong for wantin to make sure I wasn?t bein chargedwrong or items i didn?t receive. In short who cares if food is good if you can?t leave feelin like you was fed good and treatedwith good customer service. My only question is how many people actually get over charged and not realize it. My suggestion intoday?s world watch out for yourself and eat somewhere else! Read more

Lovely cozy diner with friendly staff. Try the homemade apple butter.

Food was great. A little slow on getting one meal. We were completely finished eating when my sons meal arrived. I do think they... were unusually busy and got a little behind, but all the customers that came in after us were served and finished before we gotthe last meal. Read more

Nice little find a little over a mile off the highway. This is a small diner with good food and excellent service! Look for it... on the left hand side of Main Street slightly before the railroad tracks. It's easy to miss. Read more

*Really* good burger, and really fresh food. They do great work out of a small kitchen, backed by really good service.... Definitely a go-to in the Altamont area! Read more

Heading through the area we decided to stop here and we were not disappointed! The small town diner feel was comforting and... relaxing. I found the decor adorable and fit the feel of the place perfectly. The food was delicious and fresh and hot! Took acinnamon roll to go and though we haven't eaten it yet, it looks delicious oh and it's huge! Read more

Sweet, nostalgic, hole-in-the-wall, mom and pop diner! Truly a great local treasure. What an excellent choice it turned out... to be to stop there for a nice lunch after experiencing nearby Alwerdt's Gardens nursery. Can't wait to go back! Read more
