Don't waste your time. Gravy taste like milk biscuit uncooked. And steak have I've had lunch meat that taste better to top it all off 42 dollars to not be able to eat. Literally walked out food barely touched.

The place might look a little rough at first on the inside, but Ill tell you, service was quick, staff friendly and food was excellent. We, my wife and I, had omelettes with dif styles of hashbrowns.

Grandmother and granddaughter owned and operated. Hands down the best diner in Coles county. Downtown diner is second. Great food.. even better service.


Locally owned, sweetest servers ever, you gotta try the country fried steak.

Really enjoyed the Saturday made-to-order breakfast. This place has a nostalgic feeling of days gone by. Definitely check them out for breakfast or lunch.

Let the success story of others attract you to your success. I have always had interest in binary trading so I can invest for myself and my family, but I was scared of lost until I got convinced by seeing a lot of people giving testimonies about Mrs Katie George. an expert binary trader. and then I decided to finally give it a trial, so far so good, I have made $15,500 in just a couple of weeks I started trading.

Pleasant staff, but my scramble eggs were not cooked through and my pancakes were served to me on a dirty plate.

Best little secret in Charleston. Cute restaurant tucked in just South of the courthouse. It's a must see. The staff is so welcoming and friendly. Our youngest loves spinning on their stools at the bar. We love this small town, down home cafe. The food is so good. They have fried mush if you ask.

The food was home cooked and it came out very fast. We watched our 3 orders be cooked and brought to the table in great time. And just like mom or grandma would make.

This is a Charleston institution. Best breakfast in town. Staff is super friendly and fast and the food is very well made. The prices are reasonable so South Side is a great value for the money.
