Pure Nostalgia!

Breakfast dining at John's transports you well back into the last century when folks had significantly different service and culinary expectations. Don't miss the experience. As I entered John shouted a hearty "Sit anywhere and I'll be with you in a minute." greeting from the open kitchen in the rear of his restaurant. So I sat at the chrome-trimmed counter and the few nearby customers nodded their welcomes to me. John promptly brought the menu and my coffee. "If you want a refill, help yourself.", he said pointing to the coffee brewer on the back bar. I like this. It's like being transported back into Mayberry, West Virginia. Only Sheriff Andy and Deputy Barney haven't arrived for their morning coffees yet. My scrambled eggs were perfectly done, light and fluffy with just the right amount of moistness. The accompanying sausages were lightly grilled. Just browned, not deep fried that renders the casing nearly inedible as most others places seem to do in the name of culinary expediency these days. A customer from further down the counter strikes up a conversation with me and then takes out his wallet to show me the picture of his first car, a 1954 Ford. What do you have in your wallet? John is 85 and in apparent good health. But go to this little glimpse of the past and revel in the experience. It may not be available to you much longer. If it's not too busy, ask and John will share some details of his lifelong career of serving others carefully, charmingly, honestly and completely to the very best of his ability. How many other restaurants can do that? John's prices are embarrassingly low while the experience is rich beyond all expectations. I didn't want to leave.

We love John's. Anytime we have guests in town...

We love John's. Anytime we have guests in town, we always take them to John's for breakfast. It is exactly what you would expect from a small town greasy spoon. John is great with kids, and a stereotypical breakfast cook. Cheap food, good coffee, what else do you want?

Absolutely awful. Burnt toast, steak like rubber...

Absolutely awful. Burnt toast, steak like rubber, overcooked eggs, nasty tap water - service terrible. Relatively cheap but definitely not worth risking your money...
