The little diner on Rt. 27 is a popular place, indeed.  On weekends, you’re gonna wanna get up good and early to beat the crowds; lines are out the door and there’s even a loudspeaker by the awning to call out the next party in line for a table.  But once you have tested your patience, the wait will be worth it!  The pancakes are fantastic and are available in a variety of flavors.  There’s the classic blueberry, chocolate chip, and buckwheat.  And for those looking for a walk on the wild side, there’s the sabre pancakes (coconut filled with coconut-flavored syrup), E.T. pancakes (peanut butter and chocolate chips), and corn cakes and ham (kernel-cornmeal cakes served with a slice of grille ham).  As for those who are not carb-crazy, the place offers up egg dishes that will surely satisfy.  And don’t forget to come back here for lunch; the hamburgers and fries and great!
