This is a gem for all! It is something different and the food is great...we go there often and recently we went there for the screening of Pork Pie and it was so well organised and such fun! Their Friday cake of the day is always worth a visit!

Weird title but hopefully it will make sense. Our party of 4 was looking forward to a diner style brunch. It was Sunday and pretty busy and unfortunately the till was down so everything was being done manually which can't have helped. The staff were more than happy to take orders off menu and make pretty much what we wanted... More

Food is good - try the Nachos... yum! Old cars for kids to play in and a little play area. Cool old style diner setup and vibe. Definitely worth a visit!

After visiting the nearby Classics Museum we chose to order 3 milkshakes, a spyder drink, two bowls of chips and two toasty sandwiches at the cafe on the way out. Cafe was not what we would consider busy with less than ten customers and the cafe offering only basic menu due to holiday period and 2pm closing. Sadly we waited... More

Well done to whoever is behind the changes here. The team are WAY more friendly and switched on. The food is 10x better with 1/4 of the wait time. Coffee was fantastic! Nice!

This diner has a very good atmosphere. We had coffee and cake and it was very nice. The Car Museum which you can visit from inside the diner is awesome. A good sized museum (not too big) but an excellent selection of cars and memorabilia. If you are travelling in a fully self contained motorhome you can free camp in... More

Stayed in their parking overnight so had to at least try their breakfast. Bacon pancakes. I didn't even know that you could do such thing! The bacon is actually IN the pancake. Yum!! Very American. The decoration is fantastic! You really feel like you're back in a time you weren't even born yet! Coffees are great. Enjoyed our time there... More

We met for breakfast before visiting the museum. The service was not great, they seemed to struggle with a larger group (16 of us) the food was pretty average although it was reasonably priced.
