Friend of mine lives in Columbia City and loves this place. I tried this place 5 times, and the food & service keeps going downhill.
Food: Good variety of breakfasty/diner food at first. Breakfast is local favorite, but have had better breakfast at Coastal Kitchen, Glo's, B&O, or Broadway Grill. Diner food selection is okay: sandwiches, salad. But last time I ate there, I found 2 hairs in my salad & the cook forgot to put the meat in the dish! Had to send back.
Food is not that great, or exceptional tasting.
Atmosphere: Clean, bright. Lots of babies & their stay-at-home mommies & locals.
Service: The staff is super-smiley, and friendly, but they always seem to be chatting away behind the counter. I've noticed every time I'm there, customers are trying to get their attention for service and often see customers having to go UP to the counter to get their bill.
Price: Dishes run $7-$11, which is normally okay, but you don't get much for what you pay for.
Overall: If you live in Columbia City & have no where else to dine, this is the place for the locals to go. I would not recommend going out of your way to this place. Food is not that great tasting or that much, especially for the price you pay.
